Don’t forget my popular follow-up article >>> Buckle up for a Mostly Sensible opinion of the Vaccine Wars.  There are really few debates out there that have caused such an uproar and influenced decisions about such a personal part of our lives, namely, our children.  There is so much to weed through in this debate of whether ‘To Vaccinate, or Not To Vaccinate’ your children.  Since the Pro-Vaccine Movement seems to have gotten behind the Anti-Vaccine Movement in spreading their side of the issue...
