The inconvenient truth of vaccine refusal
Follow me at @drClaire When I talk to parents who are hesitant about vaccines, what they most want to talk to me about are possible side effects of the vaccine. They worry about everything from fevers and soreness to additives to possible links to autism. They rarely worry about the diseases that vaccines prevent—and that’s what worries me most of all. It is the inconvenient truth of vaccine refusal: when you don’t get vaccinated against an illness, you are more likely to catch it.

On February 1, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the virus and its suspected link to birth defects an international public health emergency.
