A person on my Facebook page, Infectious disease news, who frequently posts anti-vaccine comments and links to certain posts placed a link to a article from a website called Natural News.
The author, SD Wells, asks the question and gives his or her answer in a piece called– Which has killed more people, measles or the measles vaccine?
Joining me today to look at this article is Paul Offit, MD. Dr Offit is a pediatrician specializing in infectious diseases and an expert on vaccines.
He is the Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia as well as the Maurice R. Hilleman Professor of Vaccinology and a Professor of Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
