Vaccine safety key worry for parents

According to MedPage Today, vaccine and drug safety is the top concern among parents when looking at their children's safety in connection with medical needs and medication.

Matthew Davis, MD, associate professor of pediatrics and internal medicine at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, who conducted a poll in connection with C.S. Mott Children's National Poll on Children's Health, stated:
"Parental concerns about the safety of vaccines have increased markedly over the last decade, due to alleged but later disproven links between vaccines and autism and related concerns about mercury and other preservatives used in vaccines."

What is your standpoint on the amount of research done for the safety of vaccines?
