It is almost beyond the comprehension of sane people that there should be organised opposition to vaccines. A special place should be reserved in Hell for the people who want to kill or maim children by preventing them from receiving vaccinations. This is a special case of health fraud, because most of the other sorts at least pretend to cure something. The sites listed here provide factual information about the benefits and risks of vaccines. (A list of anti-vaccination liars can be found at The Millenium Project.)

The purpose of this web page is to provide medical professionals with background information and practical resources that will help them discuss immunization with concerned parents or patients.
"Clinical trials are the future of our health care. New interventions for all diseases - including cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure and asthma - have been developed through clinical research. Clinical trials are helping to develop new interventions that will help people live longer and have less pain or disability"
The Australian Immunisation Handbook provides clinical advice for health professionals on the safest and most effective use of vaccines in their practice.

"While most agree that vaccination is one of the most important public health practices, vaccines continue to be underused and undervalued, and vaccine-preventable diseases remain a threat to world health. Perhaps one reason this gap remains is that decision-making generally is made on a vaccine-by-vaccine basis. There has been less attention to the value of vaccination in general. To more clearly identify this value, this paper reviews the cost-effectiveness literature and calculates the annual benefits of vaccination on a global scale"
