MMR Vaccination - Is it a Friend or Foe?
Advantages: prevention is better than treatment
Disadvantages: none in my view
There has been a lot of debate over the mmr vaccine over the last few years as a lot of people have begun to doubt the safety of this after allegations that it is causing autism in children.
Before allowing my daughter to have this vaccine i looked into it a lot and thought long and hard about it, i couldnt find any proof any where that stated this vaccine was actually causing autism in children the only link i could find was that the vaccine was being given at the same age as autism became noticable in children so the link had been deduced from this.
We decided that there was no reason for us not to go ahead with this vaccine and protect our daughter from three major and life threatening diseases, measuls, mumps and rubella.
There are a lot of increases in the number of out breaks of these diseases over the last 5 years as more and more people have refused the vaccine, i have no idea why and will never understand why people choose not to vaccinate at all, if they dont like the 3 in 1 jab they can pay to have it done seperately, but wont part with the money as this is costly but how can you put a price on your childs health.
I can sleep safe in the knowledge that both my daughters are vaccinated.
Summary: prevention is better than treatment
