The deaths of 108 children have been officially linked to receiving a measles vaccine during the past decade, according to the federal government's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.

This means that, over the past decade, an American child would have been highly more likely to die after receiving a measles shot than from contracting the disease itself. This is not what you are hearing in the mainstream media, however; and, unfortunately, most people only believe what they're told to believe. * Source: Vaccine Vs.
