If vaccines were completely safe, there would be no need for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Individuals would not be prohibited from suing pharmaceutical companies directly. Not everyone’s biology can handle having large quantities of toxic chemicals pumped into them at a young age. That doesn’t mean that vaccines are bad or wrong, but they don’t work equally as beneficially for every individual. I suggest that you consider that this is not a black and white issue — but rather one with a whole lot of shades of grey.
