According to PBS, the documentary will explore the effects of the anti-vaccine movement, such as communities like Ashland, Oregon, where up to one-third of parents are choosing not to vaccinate their kids at all.

Read what the New York Times had to say about it in their review, here: Television Review - 'The Vaccine War' - PBS’s ‘Frontline’ Report on Childhood Vaccination Debate - NYTimes.com

One of the diaper shops I follow on Facebook mentioned this. She was clearly anti-vaccine, as were a bunch of her commenters, including one who said she hoped that anti-vaccine people wouldn't be portrayed as crazy conspiracy theorists (hint you won't be because you ARE crazy conspiracy theorists!). I quickly deleted the shop. If she's dumb enough to voice her opinion when its not needed then she doesn't deserve my business.
ETA: It doesn't seem to be on in my area--they have their lame PBS auction instead Someone let me know how it is!

It was good! I hope it helped some people on the fence overcome their fears and understand the scientific truth.

Shoot I didn't see this post until it was too late! Hopefully I can see if it will be airing again soon!
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.
