The problem is, the Generation X'ers, like myself, have no memory of classmates actually dying of these things.
However, our parents do. It's easy to dismiss them based on "personal philosophy" when you have never actually seen a child practically choke to death or die from these diseases from massive infection, they will probably sing a different tune.
There is no doubt in my mind that some children do have adverse affects of these vaccinations...just like medications, someone has to be that 1% (theoretically speaking..not literally).
Granted, if that 1% is your child, it's devastating. I couldn't imagine. There was a pediatrician on a talk show years ago that felt very strongly that the chicken pox vaccine cased his daughter's autism (b/c the behavior had turned so sharply after it was administered)...however, he said, "As a pediatrician, I cannot sit here and say that I am going to advice parents to not vaccinate, and if I had another child, I would."
