I found this today: http://vaxfax.me/

 

It's a custom version of Google which allows you to search only science or evidence based websites for vaccination information and therefore avoid misinfortmation published elsewhere. 

 

It was set up by a parent who spent a lot of time online getting worried about vaccination until they realised how much of the information you can find it misleading and/or not true. 

 

I thought it might be useful for Mothering Mamas researching vaccination decisions.

This is a really nicely designed site. I'm afraid that it isn't impartial though as Colin Jenkins abhors what he calls "vaccine freeloaders." He also has a UK security clearance, which may be irrelevant, but I'm suspicious of the new Bill Gates funding to databases like this and he would be a perfect candidate.

He would indeed be the perfect candidate, since Gates' funding is to counteract misinformation.
