    The whole no vaccine movement is sad. I worry about environmental factors driving common ailments, but intentionally not preventing serious illness in your child is not a good solution.

    The most worrisome thing I read is the babies can not get the vaccine until they are 12 months old, so unvaccinated people can put those babies at risk.

    The CDC states "Infants 6 months to 11 months old should have 1 dose of MMR shot before traveling abroad." Maybe that should be expanded or before bringing your infant to a public place with a large number of people - i.e. Disney or July 4th celebrations.
