Longer answer and resources:

http://www.thearc.org/document.doc?id=3665 <— Document from The Arc (an organization for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities) with facts about childhood vaccines, the types of vaccines, their safety, and the reasons why it is crucial to vaccinate your children. Namely, “Deciding not to immunize a child puts that child and others who come in contact with him or her at risk of contracting a disease that could be dangerous or even deadly” (TheArc).
