I am not anti vaccine but its common sense to hear all sides before amking up your mind.

Informed choice means to hear both sides of the arguments when making a dicision:

In Britain many people are confused about the safety of the MMR vaccine.

I have found these links that give some pro and anti-vaccine views:

But the science is clear - this isn't a matter of two sides of the story. The vaccine is safe - the anti vaccine stuff is misguided and inaccurate.

If there was an article on the shape of the earth - would you want a link to the flat eart society?

If there is no other side read this:

I suspect that in 20 years time there will be incredulity that we were ever so gullible as to poison our children.

Right - so that's one article, with no orginal research rather a rant by some researchers who have since been discredited.

The only evidence it cites is a graph that shows that there was an increase at the time of the introduction of MMR in Denmark - a similar study in other countries has shown no change in autism rates.

Overall looking at the hard science the fact is that these vaccines are safe.

I don't practice paedatrics I'm a Adult Physician hoping to specialise in geriatrics. I have me of adults who are permanently damaged by the Measles Mumps, and Rubella they caught as children. They all wish they were vacinated as a child.
