The question of vaccination has polarized parents across the U.S. and beyond for years. In one arena, parents feel it’s an absolute necessity to have children vaccinated, for the benefit of public good in stopping preventable diseases. These parents typically support the idea of mandatory vaccinations for all children.

Dr. Andrew Wakefield is at the forefront of the debate after he received international media attention over his 1998 Lancet paper, which found a possible correlation between the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine, inflammatory bowel disease and autism. He’s also the director of a new documentary, Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.
