Latest Information on Autism and Vaccines:

The American Academy of Pediatrics has issued a statement that should be very helpful to parents. We believe strongly that vaccines are extremely safe and have been a public health miracle, saving millions of lives since vaccination began. However, we understand that parents are bombarded with information that is frightening and confusing. Please note the following link and read the statements carefully. We hope this will provide you with the information you need to make an effective and informed decision to vaccinate your child.

The AAP has recently added a really great section on immunizations so that you can hopefully wade through some of the frightening information you may be receiving from the media and worried friends, to arm yourself with the latest and most reliable information about this controversial subject.
