Risks and Benefits of Vaccination

According to the NHS, a government health agency in the UK, the benefits of vaccines far outweigh the risks. Though there hasn't been any cases of Measles in Manitoba for quite a while 4 cases have cropped up in Toronto, sparking the debate once again if vaccines are really that risky. A celebrity recently quoted a now discredited study, claiming that vaccines can cause autism. CTV had a report recommending that parents ask for the vaccine package insert before getting their child vaccinated. Doctors recommend the first dose just after the baby's first birthday and the second dose between ages four and six. If you would like to read more information on the benefits and risks of vaccination have a look at the NHS website at the following address: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/pages/benefits-and-risks.aspx I found it very informative and it had way more information than I could fit in a single blog post.
