Storyline

The film looks behind the fear, hype and politics that polarize people into emotionally charged pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine camps with no room for middle ground. Verite stories of individuals and their families, whose lives have been forever changed by vaccine choices, interwoven with interviews from leading experts in the field, will re-frame the vaccine debate and offer, for the first time, the opportunity to have a rational, scientific and factual discussion on how to create a more effective vaccine program in America today.

Main message: Critical thinking is important
7 November 2019 | by corporal_chowderheadSee all my reviews

Unfortunately most people who approach this issue are drawn to either of the extremes. Anyone who wishes to try to approach the issue from an unbiased critical position is almost always lumped in with the group that is disagreed with.

This film does as good a job as I have seen to present two different opinions. It should be noted that the film is not anti-vaccine so much as it is anti-enforced vaccine. It does not go into scientific detail regarding the process of immunity, side-effects and that sort of thing.

Unfortunately, because we are dealing with children, emotion is a by-product of the discussion. The film presents two opposing views, one from the scientific pharmaceutical community who sincerely believe what they do is for the "greater good", the other is from the scientific practitioners and parents who sincerely believe the vaccine industry carries with it many inherent risks which are not being addressed. Because of the overwhelming positive scientific evidence that is prevalent in our culture, this film takes more time to look into some special cases in which, at the absolute least, vaccines seem to correlate to a worse state than a better one. Whether or not these are only isolated, non-causal cases, you are to determine based on the evidence.

The key point is that information is a good thing. You should not be watching this to confirm your position. You should watch this as a small part of your research into the vaccine dialogue. Truth will always vindicate itself and can withstand any amount of scrutiny.
