With the autism-vaccine controversy playing a major role as to whether parents decide to have a child vaccinated, Dr. Mark Sawyer, medical director of the UCSD San Diego Immunization Partnership, discusses the safety of the vaccinations and the 2010 whooping cough outbreak in California

Upon saying that vaccinations was one of the greatest advancements ever made, Dr. Sawyer replied, "In fact, the surgeon general at the end of the 20th century made that statement. He said that of all of the public health advances of the 20th century, vaccines was number one." He continued by saying, "You think about how many lives have been through vaccines and how cheaply thats' been done."
