June 3, 2014, Appleton (WI) Post-Crescent: Vaccination important for entire society
June 2, 2014, Minneapolis Star Tribune: Trustworthy: Vaccines have earned that title
Of the studies done on the relationship between autism and vaccines, none have come to the conclusion that they're linked. The Centers of Disease Control have been conducting studies on this and still are. One of the studies came to the conclusion there is no link with the measles/mumps/rubella vaccine with all of the 500 cases of autism they studied.
The letter to the editor gives us only the up side of vaccination. I posted comments.
Fear-mongering online vaccine critics are not winning, in a classical political sense. Thankfully, more than 90 percent of parents still trust their health care providers and nationally recommended vaccines. If they didn't, we would see frequent headlines about deaths from measles, whooping cough and other diseases.
Here a health care worker in the Twin Cities attests to the fact that over 90 percent of parents comply with the recommended vaccination schedule.
BUT. . . on the same day, Scientific American and other news outlets are saying that 40 percent of parents are refusing or delaying vaccinations for their children.
I guess if one strategy doesn't work, they'll try something else. Here we see both. Saying the 90 percent of parents are vaccinating, despite the controversy over safety, should convince that public that they should vaccinate. AND. . . saying that a large percentage of parents aren't vaccinating should scare everyone that killers diseases are coming back. WHATEVER WORKS!
