Vaccine info on Wikipedia

EDIT: Here is another one:

Info from the National Network for Immunization Information

exactly--and there are religious leaders in africa that are turning people there against modern medicine so polio has been on the rise. it could definitely find it's way back over here.

it bothers me too that audrey can't have certain shots until she's older. these outbreaks are becoming way too common for my comfort. pertussis is on the rise too (though that vaccine is given earlier) and if measles and pertussis are becoming more common, others are sure to follow.

on an interesting note, i declined the new and optional chickenpox vaccine for my son when he was little (9 years ago), figuring he'd get it the old fashioned way. i was so wrong--all the kids his age are vaccinated, i think his school sees 1-2 cases a year at the most. i'm going to have him get the vaccination if he doesn't come down with it in the next year or so, otherwise he'll be in for trouble if he catches it as a teen or adult.
