There has been much debate recently over whether domestic animals are being over vaccinated.
We relate to this probably most clearly as a result of the MMR debacle. Some years ago a respected doctor made a statement to the effect that the new MMR vaccine had the potential to cause autism in some children. Parents stayed away in their droves. The result? A dramatic and terrifying rise in the number of children becoming seriously ill and permanently damaged through Measles and Mump infections. The link between MMR and autism has now been debunked. In this instance the disease posed a significantly higher threat than the possible side effects.
