About three years ago, the website, VacTruth.com published an article entitled, “10 Reasons Not To Vaccinate”, which laid out such arguments like “Vaccine do NOT work”, “Are vaccines cause a host of ‘chronic, incurable, and life threatening diseases’? and “Vaccines have never been proven safe or effective”.
The theme of my Jan. 2015 interview with Director of the Vaccine Education Center and a professor of pediatrics in the Division of Infectious Diseases at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Paul A. Offit, MD was to examine many of the “10 reasons” and for him to offer his rebuttal.
