Vaccination against various diseases, previously commonplace, is now no longer a given, as some parents, swayed by various reports of injury resulting from vaccines, refuse shots for their children. But that mentality is proving to be a roll of the dice, as diseases that were largely eradicated some 40 years ago are now on the way back. This film travels the world and discusses the issue both with doctors and scientists, and families whose lives have been impacted by the enigmas enshrouding immunization.
