Your utter lack of a sense of scale is astounding.  Nothing is 100% safe.  This includes vaccines and cars and planes and crossing the street and eating lettuce and drinking water.  But we all fly...

I agree with Prosciencemum in the need for scepticism in looking for credible information. Nothing (including vaccinating as well as not vaccinating) is 100% safe, but the huge majority of science...

Hi - great to hear that you are thinking hard about your baby.  As you can see there are MANY opinions here, both pro and anti.  I'm personally an all-in vaccination supporter and giver but if you...

Survival long-term, yes.  Indefinitely, no.  Although it may take 20 or 30 years, everyone dies from HIV.

Yes, it is.  Everyone progresses to AIDS over time.  There is currently 1 (that is ONE) long-term survivor with no onset of AIDS after many years.  Everyone else dies.  Period.

To address the "most important" issue, everyone will have a different answer.  In some ways it's apples to oranges, just like "what's more important, wearing your seat belt or or exercising...

Since there's no way to know if a baby will have a severe reaction (and most don't) there's no recommendation about this; remember that normally pain relievers are used AFTER vaccinations anyway.

What kind of formal training in research methodology have physicians undergone?

I'm guessing that some sort of accrediting body determines medical school curricula and requirements. Are there...

Sure - if the reaction that a child had to a vaccine is a rash or hives, use of Benadryl in advance would be reasonable.  If instead it was a high fever, one could use acetaminophen or ibuprofen...
