The discussion (and debate) of vaccinations can be both emotional as well as confusing. This website is a compilation of many vaccine resources tied together alongside some of the recent vaccination scientific literature. As a pediatrician in support of vaccinations, I hope that this website will serve several functions:
  • Explain that vaccines are neither 100% safe nor 100% effective -
    but why we feel that the benefits still outweigh the risks of vaccines
  • Identify the current vaccine preventable diseases (VPDs)
    and discuss some common anti-vaccination views of VPDs
  • Debunk some of the common anti-vaccination literature
  • Provide links to reliable resources for vaccine information
  • Discuss and provide examples of why some vaccine resources are unreliable
  • Serve as a fundamental basis upon which vaccination research may start
  • Provide quicker access to vaccine information that is requested frequently


  • The Vaccine Preventable Diseases (VPDs) - Brief disease descriptions and links to more detailed disease information
