So now we've fed from how common serious side effects are to just outright speculation.

Also, taxi, the information you posted is from 1989, so wouldn't that make it about dtp not Dtap?

Also, I see at that link that the Encephalitis it's talking about occurs around .3% of the time, so yeah I guess it's not the same as the crying pp was talking about happening 50% of the time.

I don't think a buncha moms commenting on MDC can effectively conclude how often serious side effects occur, when even scientific community is not in agreement. Everything we do here is speculation.

For every pro vax statistic you can find an anti vax one. It all depends on what you ultimately set out to prove and most people are trying to prove themselves right, so naturally the studies and statistics will be biased.

A statistic is a statistic, it's how you present it (and which ones you talk about versus which ones you hide) which make the discussion pro- or anti-vax......
