No: Only the highly educated, thoughtful, caring ones who have patients that need them do. Most pediatricians fall into this category.

I would add that those who care for the well being of their patients immunize.

They Should!!!: Immunizations may be the single safest, most effective heath intervention produced in the last 100 years. They are proven to be 99% effective, safe and haved saved literally millions of children's lives. A caring, educated doctor immunizes.

No; Primary Care: Vaccines are given by most primary care doctors, esp. Pediatricians, family practice & internists. They are rarely given by specialists like surgeons, neurologists & radiologists, though those docs may recommend them. Most doctors consider vaccines both safe & effective but this is not universally true.Visit http://drrandybaker.Com/2012/05/04/the-vaccination-debate-7/ to see my essay on vaccines.

Is it true that vaccines play a huge role psychological problems?

No.: See www.Immunize.Org or http://www.Cdc.Gov/vaccines for more information. Vaccines have saved millions of lives and have gotten a bad RAP lately, because people have forgotten how bad it was before they were available. It is hard to distinguish with all the information out there what to believe. Stick to information sources that are trustworthy.

I would suggest that the anti-vaccine crowd is more likely to have psychological issues than the vaccinated ones.

Can be: Nothing that we do in life has no risk. Crossing the street, riding in an elevator or getting a vaccine all can have down sides. The benefits of the vaccine, however, far outweighs any risk.
