Measles Outbreak Ignites Fresh Vaccine Debate / ABC News Productions. .
Two families who were on the fence are now grappling with the decision to vaccinate their children.
Vaccines: Calling the Shots / Public Broadcasting Service (U.S.). 
Diseases that were largely eradicated in the United States a generation ago-including whooping cough, measles, mumps-are returning, in part because nervous parents are skipping their children's shots. This NOVA special takes viewers around the world to track epidemics, explore the science behind vaccinations, and shed light on the risks of opting out. Highlighting real cases and placing them in historical context, the program traces outbreaks of communicable diseases and demonstrates just how fast they can spread-and how many people can fall sick-when a community's immunity barrier falls.
Vaccines / A.D.A.M., Inc. 
An active vaccination is an injection of an antigen (a weakened disease-causing substance) to trigger the body's long-term defense mechanism against the disease without developing it. B cells form antibodies against a specific disease to fight the disease when it enters the body.
