Here is an article in the November issue of WIRED magazine (on newsstands now) about the anti-vaccine movement and how their scare tactics result in lower immunization rates and recent outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases, and Dr. Paul Offit's efforts against it all. An Epidemic of Fear: One Man’s Battle Against the Anti-Vaccine Movement

My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.

Thanks for posting! I'll have to check it out when the boys go to sleep. I'm glad the dangers of not vax'ing is getting some press.

ETA: Just finished it. A very good article. Its just too bad that the anti-vax movement will always have the comeback "that's what they want you to think" so I don't know if it will change any minds, but hopefully those that are wavering will see the risks to not vaccinating.
