For 15 years, Kristina Kruzan refused to vaccinate her three children. When the Seattle-area doula’s eldest son was 3, she says, she started to search the internet for more information about vaccines.

Without more information, she says, she didn’t feel like she could...

Why vaccines work in the fight against measles and other infectious diseases
It is often said that vaccines are only second to clean drinking water in terms of public health impact. In recent years, misinformation about vaccines, especially childhood vaccinations, has spread and left many with questions about their efficacy and necessity. It ’s important to understand that preventative vaccines work with your body to develop immunity to a disease by imitating an infection to teach the immune system how to recognize, remember and target microbial invaders, like viruses and bacteria, without actually causing an infection.
