Thought it might be useful - quick facts about the vaccine preventable diseases which may be a concern for parents of pre-teens and teens. Could be particularly useful for anyone considering catching up an older child (you know what to not bother with!).

As a beginner starting to research vaccines, I would want balanced information. I'm not sure Merck material would be considered balanced. I would just urge folks new to this topic to seek out less biased info - I know that can be hard!
