RESOURCES - comprehensive lists of Books, Websites...
There’s a LOT of info here and it can be a bit overwhelming. The best advice I have is for you to pick a single book from the list that is written by a doctor and read it. Some are even available at your local library. From there you'll be ready to do more research in the areas of vaccine dangers that peak your personal interest.
Be it known that the administrators and owners of this group do not necessarily agree with the views posted on every site listed here – these informative links are to guide you to do your own research and find the answers you personally seek.

"What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Childhood Immunizations" by Dr. Stephanie Cave This book and the next are great starting points. This one has some very thorough but simple explanations about autism and other autoimmune conditions related to vaccines, the history of each vaccine and the production of each vaccine. I am SO glad I read it because it clarified a LOT of things about vaccines that I have heard about. Very worth reading!! This next one is great as well...
The Parent's Concise Guide to Childhood Vaccinations; Practical Medical and Natural Ways to Protect Your Child by Dr. Lauren Feder, M.D. This one is written in very plain English, easy to read and understand. She compares all sides of the argument, holistic, medical, pro-vax and anti-vax. This one is good but doesn't go into great detail about the hows and whys of ALL the rumors of vaccines as the previous one does but what I like about it is the inclusion of the holistic perspectives.
Vaccines, Are They Really Safe and Effective by Neil Z. Miller This one has each and every vaccine up through adulthood vaccines and is a great resource for deciding weather to selectively vaccinate. It's short and full of a lot of good information. His books are a good starting place but read other authors if you start with this one.
Immunization Theory vs Reality by Niel Z. Miller This one is short as well. It has a little bit more technical and medical jargon, but is still relatively easy to read. I suggest the one above first.
Natural Baby and Childcare by Dr. Lauren Feder, M.D.
Parent's Guide to Vaccine Research By Kellie and Tre Bischof
The Vaccine Book by Robert Sears, M.D. Some selective vaccinators and vaccinators do like it but I think he just leaves out too much of the controversial stuff and focuses on why vaccines are good. It's better to read something that covers all sides of the issue.
What the Pharmaceutical Industry Does Not Wat you To Know About VACCINES by Dr. Todd M. Elsner
The Truth About Vaccines by Dr Richard Halvorsen
Vaccination The Hidden Facts by Ian Sinclair This is an older book, but it has a lot of good graphs. I didn't really like the format of this one and you can find much better and newer books that have the same information. Plus it has a grim reaper on the front which seems a little alarmist to me, lol.
Raising A Vaccine Free Child by Wendy Lydall
A Shot In The Dark by Harris L. Coulter & Barbara Loe Fisher
(Why the P in the DPT vaccination may be hazardous to your child's health)
The Sanctity Of Human Blood: Vaccination Is Not Immunization by Tim O'Shea
"Vaccination: A Thoughtful Parent's Guide to Childhood Immunizations" by Aviva Romm This one has some pretty technical explanations of how the immune system works and how vaccines are supposed to work. It includes sections about travel, medical emergencies, nutrition, herbal remedies, homeopathy and laws for non-vaccinators. It's pretty thorough but I wouldn't recommend it as a first book to read on the topic. See Cave's book above for that.
"How to Raise a Healthy Child, In Spite of your Doctor" by Dr. Robert Mendelsohn This one is great. I love all the good points he makes about medical care and how unnecessary well baby visits are. There are references to older drugs, and a few things he talks about are a little different now because this book was written in the eighties, but it still gives great insight into the realities of pediatric care that EVERY parent should know about. The inadequacies of medical training and the entire profession are outlined. Wonderful resource!
"Evidence of Harm" by David Kirby
“Vaccinations: A Thoughtful Parent's Guide: How to Make Safe, Sensible Decisions about the Risks, Benefits, and Alternatives” by Aviva Jill Romm
Vaccination Crisis by Vance Ferrell
Just a Little Prick by Hilary Butler
Naturally Healthy Babies and Children: A Commonsense Guide to Herbal Remedies, Nutrition, and Health by Aviva Romm
Natural Cures by Kevin Trudeau Basically it is a book written by a man that has been on both sides of the fence on this issue. He has written this book to educate people about drug companies that very well know that they are harming human lives, but doing it anyway, for the money. It also has controversial topics as the Federal Gov't is in on this as well as the FDA.
