Now, in 2015, measles, mumps, and whooping cough are all making a comeback. Building on years of research, this updated documentary explores both the roots of the vaccine debate, and the latest chapter in the heated controversy: Are parents who choose not to vaccinate their children putting the health of our nation at risk? This is a compelling and timely report on an issue that remains highly emotional and deeply divisive.

Having worked in a pediatric ER and seen infants with pertussis and other diseases that can be eliminated thru thorough vaccination programs, I am strongly in favor of immunization. There are a minuscule number of reactions to vaccines compared to the devastation of polio, measles, diphtheria, and other diseases that many people have not witnessed. Kristi & Abby Tabby

A lot of fear is realized from postings on the Internet regarding vaccinations some of which is based on erroneous information.

Was pretty fair, in terms of showing both sides. They had the story of the cheerleader with a weird neurological condition due to flu vaccine, which was later debunked. The documentary also includes appearances by anti-vaccine poster child, Jenny McCarthy.

Tries to be balanced - but fails to explain why rates of autism and other conditions have risen in the general population, but not in those that have never vaccinated, like the Amish, etc.
