This is so sad:
1-year old Madyson Williams dies from the MMR vaccine
MMR is one of the few live vaccines, as well as one of the most controversial. Most vaccines contain a "killed", cultivated version of the virus or disease, whereas a few contain a live version.
I don't think parents realize the risks associated with vaccines. I'm not in any way blaming the parents; I rather blame the society we live in. If you are a parent who chooses to go against the grain and delay some vaccines or skip them altogether, you are often grilled by doctors as to your choice and made to sign a paper that states you acknowledge that your child may get sick and even die from a vaccine-related illness. Why don't they have similar forms that parents who choose to vaccinate have to sign? If vaccines are pretty safe, as many claim, and illness or death was not a possible side effect of vaccinating, then Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) would not need to exist.
I'm so sad for the parents.
