Vaccination & Immunization Message Board


Vaccination & Immunization Board Index


"This site is a presentation on the controversy surrounding vaccination. While vaccination has been effective in reducing
the risk of infectious disease all over the world, at times the safety and efficacy of vaccination has been called into
question. This has created a lot of debate, with members of the community divided into pro- and anti-vaccination forces.

"Alan Phillips (a leading figure in the anti-vaccination debate) writes on vaccination risks and alternatives (but never
writes about the benefits!). He has written a report called "Dispelling Vaccination Myths" which is available on the world
wide web (see Links). He attempts to discredit vaccination by revealing the so called "truth" on 10 vaccination "myths".
This site aims to reveal the real truth about vaccination, and rightfully place Alan Phillips' "truths" into the realm of
mythology."
