Tara, a mother of nine and a baby on the way, says she struggled with an important decision that many parents face: should she or shouldn’t she vaccinate her children?
 
Tara joins Dr. Phil, along with Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, Chief Patient Officer at Pfizer, who offers important information about vaccines. Dr. Lewis-Hall shares information about the recent measles outbreak in the United States, explains why there was a controversy between vaccines and autism, discusses side effects of vaccinations, and more.
