  1. These videos are just excellent. They’re short enough that they’re not a big commitment to watch, but they give full answers to the questions. The experts do a great job with their explanations. Terrific resource!

  2. Is a DVD available of the autism/vaccination clip? We would like to show this in the lobby at our health department? If so, how can I obtain the DVD and what is the cost?
