Despite evidence to the contrary, some parents believe vaccinations cause autism. How can I convince parents that it's unsafe NOT to vaccinate?
The reluctance is mostly due to the discredited "research" of Dr. Andrew Wakefield. I'm afraid that parents who don't vaccinate their kids may be contributing to potential outbreaks at school. I'm also worried that the vaccine that my kids have been given is only about 90% effective -- and they may be at risk if an outbreak were to occur.
What's the best way to approach reluctant parents that it's ok to vaccinate their kids?
