Diseases that were largely eradicated in the U.S. a generation ago - including whooping cough, measles, mumps - are returning, in part because nervous parents are skipping their children's shots. This takes viewers around the world to track epidemics, explore the science behind vaccinations, and shed light on the risks of opting out. The vast majority of Americans - more than 90% - vaccinate their children. Yet many people have questions about the safety of vaccines.

this is absolute bullcrap. i have been researching vaccines, the pharmaceutical industry, the CDC, and the FDA thoroughly for a year. the corruption is very evident. there are many significant red flags.

after trying to be as unbiased as possible and resorting to logical reasoning i have concluded that vaccines are hands down, completely unsafe and ineffective. i have learned much about vaccines from doctors and scientists, this was not from facebook blogs.

Could not disagree with the previous comment more. This is a very good film that explains scientific information in a clear, easy to understand format. Accurate facts about real science & immunology. Should be a recommended film for all new parents so they understand the importance of vaccines for their child & globally. Kudos to the library for obtaining this one!

Clearly the pro-vaccine propaganda, quite unusfull if someone has any questions. This movie does not answers any concerns. Waste of time.
