A lot of people, even the ones who support vaccines, feel like they are losing their minds over the vaccine debate.
But a lot of them have no idea what they are talking about, says Dr. Jonathan Mermin, a clinical professor at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.
They don’t know what the evidence is.
They are being told that there is some evidence that supports vaccines and some evidence against them, but that it’s all in the past and we need to focus on the future.
Mermin is the co-founder of the Vaccine Alliance, a coalition of health, public health and medical groups dedicated to improving vaccination rates.
“There’s a lot that we have learned in recent years that we can use to make our recommendations more transparent, more accurate and more credible,” he said.
The Vaccine Act, which passed in 2010 and requires all states to provide parents with vaccines for children younger than six years old, is expected to become law in about a year.
It mandates a mandatory vaccination schedule for everyone, but states have the discretion to choose to provide fewer doses of the vaccine or fewer doses in some cases.
The legislation has created a number of new programs aimed at improving access to vaccines, but the number of people who need to get them is still quite high, Mermin said.
He said that while there’s no doubt that there’s a link between the MMR vaccine and autism, there’s also no doubt about the effectiveness of the measles vaccine, which he says is safer.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said the MMR and diphtheria vaccines have shown no increase in the incidence of autism.
Mermine said parents need to be given the best information possible about vaccines, including the facts about side effects and the side effects of other medicines and foods.
But some parents who have tried out vaccines are unhappy about the new legislation.
Mermele said he’s heard from many parents who say that they’re worried about their children’s health, but are not sure what they should do about it.
He also said that people should remember that vaccinations are a voluntary, individual responsibility and that they can always opt out.
“We want to encourage parents to be as open as possible and be as informed as possible,” Mermin told The Huffington Post.
“But also to keep in mind that this is a new, evolving technology and that we need better data, better testing and better education and more testing, to make sure that we’re actually vaccinating people who are actually vaccinated.”
