Introduction

Boost Oregon knows that you want to make the best decisions for your child’s health. But, like most subjects related to parenting, there is a lot of seemingly contradictory information out there about children’s vaccinations.

This guide helps you sort through the noise and understand the evidence-based facts about immunization. You have probably researched online and spoken to your friends and family about the benefits and perceived risks of various vaccinations. Now is your chance to learn from medical experts and parents like you who had questions and concerns about their children’s vaccinations.
