5 myths surrounding vaccines, The Reality

By: Joseph Cusick

     With dozens of measles cases popping up in the United States, Americans are buzzing about vaccines again and some old fearful myths are beginning to return . These myths may be keeping parents from protecting their children from these dangerous diseases when there's every reason to get them vaccinated and to keep them safe. Vaccines prevents six million deaths worldwide every year, Dr. Sanjay Gupta says that "there's basically no reason not to get them vaccinated. Only one in a million children have had serious reaction to these vaccines. Those are very great odds. You're 100 times more likely to get struck by lightning than have an allergic reaction to a vaccine". "Taking aspirin, for example, is much more likely to cause brain bleeding. Still, five nail-biting theory's continue to scare away people from the protection they need and that is a vaccine".
