I think it's good to pay attention to what science and researchers have to say on this topic.  Anecdotes from friends and online communities is one thing, but solid, proven, facts are something else entirely.

 The author of that article has been an infectious disease doctor for 21 years and has seen one death from a VPD. While any death is very sad, I find this one much worse http://iansvoice.org/default.aspx


He sees the vaccination issue as black/white. You either follow the CDC's recommendations or you are a wackjob and for that reason I don't find his arguments at all convincing.

Where were the "solid, proven facts" in the article? Perhaps your link is broken, but all I saw were stats about the number of selective and non-vaxers coupled with a deliberately subjective (the author talks about not liking statistics!) rant about deaths from vax preventable illnesses - without any mention of deaths from vaccine reactions whatsoever.

As a selective/delayed vaxer, I found this article quite condescending.
