Vaccines and Immunization Information

Vaccine safety has been a recurring issue in the media over the last few years.   A large amount of media coverage has focused on concerns about autism associated with the MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) vaccine, and more recently with concerns over the safety and administration of the HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine.  The following resources contain information regarding the safety of commonly used vaccines.

 The Library also has a number of books available on immunization and vaccines:

 Vaccines and Your Child : Separating Fact from Fiction by Paul Offit and Charlotte Moser
