Helpful Vaccine Websites
I believe that a person can find whatever he or she is looking for on the Internet. If the claim is that the sky is green, I’m sure some “expert” has written something to support that theory. People logically know that they can’t believe everything they read on the Internet, but for whatever reason, that logic seems to go out the window when discussing vaccines. When it comes to vaccines, there are a lot of bad websites out there with misleading, false information.
I’ve compiled a list of some websites I know of that provide reliable, factual, scientific-based information for people desiring more information and resources.
