In not giving it.
In the prevaccine age, far too many children died from complications of measles, new babies suffered severe damage from congenital rubella and mumps was the most common cause of viral meningitis in winter months. Please vaccinate your toddler.

In brief: Not what you read

Dr Wakefield, a British adult GI doc put out some faked research that proposed a link of the MMR with autism.
He was handsomely paid by some a lawyers to do so. After years of study, his fraud was exposed.He lost his medical license & left Britain in shame. The vaccine haters still push that idea, but it has been well debunked. Sad that so many babies have died so he could make some money.
