Despite vaccines being strongly recommended by pediatricians and physicians across the country, in recent years a small number of parents are choosing not to immunize their children based on fears spread on the Internet and in the media. In an effort to ease confusion and concern surrounding vaccinations, I’d like to address some of the common vaccination myths.
