You don't have to be anti-vaccine to ask for better vaccines, better research and better testing. My wife, an immunization nurse, suffered indescribable pain when her brain swelled from a Hepatitis B vaccine reaction. Yes, it was diagnosed and not imaginary. Her colleagues did not want anything to do with her after reporting an adverse reaction. If we are to go with "the herd", the medical community should take care of the herd when needed. It is so easy to lump everyone in the anti-vaccine crowd if you don't take the time to look at these "rare" cases.
