Dear parents: you are being lied to about vaccines

Dear parents: you are being lied to about vaccines:

They say that vaccines haven't been rigorously tested for safety.
But vaccines are subjected to a higher level of scrutiny than any other medicine. For example, this 

 study tested the safety and effectiveness of the pneumococcal vaccine in more than 37,868 children.

They will say that doctors won't admit there are any side effects to vaccines.
But the side effects are well known, and except in very rare cases, quite mild.

They say that the MMR vaccine causes autism.
It doesn't. The question of whether vaccines cause autism has been investigated in study after study, and they all show overwhelming evidence that they don't.)

They say that thimerosal in vaccines causes autism.
It doesn't, and it hasn't been used in most vaccines since 2001 anyway.
