I was sad to read the statements against ex-Health Minister Jamie Maxtone-Grahame on the dangers of vaccination.

Severe comment has been made in the Post Courier of Papua New Guinea 13 January 2015 P.6 criticizing his view expressed in the social media.

Today, I typed Dangers of Vaccination into Google and was surprised to find the numbers of reports expressing concern at the possible adverse effects of vaccine on people's health. 

Whether or not this means that vaccination should be stopped is really another matter. Generations of children over recent centuries have been protected by vaccine. 

In the overall balance, the medical world has come down on the side of vaccination. In the absence of any replacement, that is the only course of action as long as precautions are taken for people who may be susceptible to adverse reactions.
