@LBC @MaajidNawaz "Due to the success of immunization, some diseases are no longer perceived as a threat. Certain groups have even questioned the utility of vaccination in spite of its proven success in controlling disease."
@LBC @MaajidNawaz "In recent years, a number of web sites providing unbalanced, misleading and alarming vaccine safety information have been established, which can lead to undue fears, particularly among parents and patients."

@LBC @MaajidNawaz "The mission of the Vaccine Safety Net is to help internet users find reliable vaccine safety information tailored to their needs."
