A Center for Disease Control study has found more proof that vaccines are safe for children.
Over the years parents have become increasingly more concerned about the negative effects of vaccinations, but the CDC still encourages shots to protect kids from deadly diseases, like pneumonia. Some worry that the amount of antigens, which are the part of the vaccine that helps the body fight off diseases, can cause autism.
There are more vaccines available to children now than in the last few decades, but a study completed last week shows there's no relationship between autism and the disease fighting substances.
"I think they're important because it builds your immune system up in your body, that's the biggest thing," said Leonard Krug, father and grandfather.
Experts said the fear of unknown risks of vaccines shouldn't keep parents from trying to prevent the known threats of deadly diseases.
