My wife and I studied this subject extensively when our children were born. There are risks from vaccinations, but the statistics show that the risks of getting the disease are much greater. It boils down to taking a small risk of a vaccination side effect vs. a much larger risk of getting the disease and suffering an even worse outcome.
We don't have to look too far back in history to see what happened before there were vaccinations for polio, small pox and pertussis -- millions of people died or were left permamently disabled.
