He thinks that vaccinating children should be part of every families medical practice. It is irresponsible to suggest to families that they should not vaccinate their children, and it is also irresponsible to tell parents that some of the diseases their child could suffer from are not that serious. Sicknesses like measles and whooping cough can cause serious problems, and they may result in days in a hospital.
Dr. Saad Saad basis his opinions on science. He does not feel like waiting until a child is older is any safer. If anything, that has made the child prone to serious illnesses for a longer period of time. He bases his policy on vaccinations on a knowledge of history.

He cites the smallpox outbreak and the role vaccinations played in eliminating the disease completely. The science behind vaccinations is fairly simple. By introducing a small amount of a disease into a person, the person’s immune system works to make sure the full blown disease can never take hold. If the same pattern follows like smallpox, some of these common diseases will be eradicated.
The only way for your body to become immune is to be introduced to some of the virus. The body can remain immune for the rest of that person’s life. The fewer people that get vaccinated the stronger the possibility that a disease will spread.
Dr. Saad Saad is aware that vaccinations have been controversial, but he fully supports them and he says there is no link between them and autism. He also states that they do not give the disease to the child, or that they contain toxins that are dangerous to children.
