To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate: That is the Question

There has been a long-standing debate that has been going on among people. Some people, or should I say many people, believe in the vaccination of children, while other people are against it. They believe that vaccinations cause autism. I am not sure if vaccines are a cause of autism, I do know that vaccines are vital in the prevention of diseases such as polio and tuberculosis. Someone else who may know this is Dr. Paul Offit. Offit has written over one hundred papers that have been published in numerous medical and scientific journals that discuss vaccine safety. Dr. Paul Offit has also co-created the roto-virus vaccine.

Long story short, if medical science can prove that vaccines do cause autism, it would be a shame, but one cannot deny the good that vaccinations have brought to mankind.
