No vaccinations here.
A good book to read for straightforward information is What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations by Dr. Stephanie Cave (check Amazon.com to buy).
There's more in vaccines to be concerned about than just thimerosal. Formaldehyde, 2PE (the chemical equivalent of antifreeze), aluminum, multiple antibiotics and foreign animal tissue (chicken, monkey or even aborted fetal tissue) are in vaccines. These aren't safe and all can cause problems, such as autoimmune disorders and other health problems.
The book is good because it outlines what each vaccine contains, how the vaccine is produced, what disease it protects against, how effective the vaccine is at providing that protection, etc. It also outlines a safer vaccine schedule than that of the CDC for parents who choose to vaccinate. The book isn't "pro-vaccine" or "anti-vaccine" ~~ it simply presents the facts of "This is how this vaccine is made and what goes in to it. This is what the components of this vaccine are known to do." It gives parents the knowledge necessary to make good decisions for their children. I think it's a "must read" for all parents, but that's just my opinion.
