Loyola Minute: Childhood Vaccines with Nadia Qureshi, MD

Loyola Medicine pediatrician Nadia Qureshi, MD, explains how childhood vaccines protect against diseases that can be fatal or cause serious complications including paralysis, hearing loss and brain damage.

The notion that vaccines can cause autism is a myth, disproved by many studies involving thousands of children. "One of the most important things you can do is to make sure your child has received all the recommended vaccines," Dr. Qureshi said.
