Vaccines are a lifesaver. But in recent years, they’ve come under suspicion in some circles. A recent outbreak of measles in California was attributed to the large number of children unvaccinated against a disease that we thought was all but gone. The Observer’s Karen Garloch recently investigated vaccines and their potential connection to other conditions and found some surprising things. She shares her findings and we hear from an epidemiologist.
