Anti-vaxxers talk about the dangers of the vaccine schedule all of the time. They talk about how anyone who vaccinates should understand the risks. Unfortunately, most of them don’t know the actual risks.
Below, I have calculated the adverse events from the entire vaccine schedule.
Feel free to fact check this is you’d like, with that many numbers things get a bit hairy.
Of course, vaccination carries a risk. However, not vaccinating also carries a risk. To that end, I made a chart of the death rates of these same diseases:
In many cases, there is significantly more risk from skipping a single vaccination (and thus risking contracting that disease) than there is in the entire vaccine schedule.
