It doesn't scare me into vaxxing any more than it scares vaxxing parents to hear about a horrific vax reaction. You do what you feel is right either way. When I hear about a vaccine reaction, it does re-affirm what I think about vaccines, but when I hear about an illness from not vaccinating, I still think about all of those vaccine reactions. It's the vaccine reactions that scare me, not the illnesses, no matter what the news' spin is on it.
We all have confirmation bias and there's really no way around it. If you're already someone who vaccinates, this will re-affirm how important it is. It's not going to change anyone,
