Hey jennifer--great website thanks! And that website led me to the CDC (Center for disease Control) website which also gives a lot of good statistics and answers. Just a couple of the interesting things that I found: because vaccines are the most widely used medicines, they are also the most rigorously tested for safety before they are approved. Also on the CDC website it explained that a decrease in immunizations would bring a comeback of diseases because the diseases themselves are not extinct they are merely suppressed because of immunizations. It gave an example in Japan, where in 1974 they decreased the amount of pertussis (whooping cough) immunizations because the disease was virtually non-existent, and an epidemic occured.
