  • There plenty of vaccines that are still live virus vaccines. ...I am not sure where you would have read that. ...

  • Your first mistake is taking what is written in a baby magazine as "gospel". There are still some given, but not many, and not very many doctors really do it anyway.

    If the article was written in generalities, they were not wrong. If they were speaking in specifics THEN they were wrong.

    Not sure why you're "going nuts" over it though.
