Even if you're usually not factually-inclined, this presents them in a more digestible form (it's a comic).
Please, if you don't get factually-grounded information here, get factually-grounded information somewhere.

The reason people may think the MMR is responsible for autism is that autism symptoms often start at about the same age as the MMR shot is given. Fear of autism is not a sound reason for giving your child immunizations. There are other reasons to delay or not give your child some immunizations.

Wow, I'm amazed by the misinformation presented by anon 3:56. But even using her definition of "injured"as meaning having a fever or something more less than 20% of kids who receive a vaccine are "injured" while 100% of kids with measles, mumps and rubella are "injured". Her reasoning not to vaccinate makes absolutely no sense at all. And I'm sure the family of the 14-year-old who DIED from mealses would be interested in her bogus claim that measles is cured 100% of the time.
