Is vaccination a taboo topic – a dogma around which it is not allowed to raise any questions? Then, what about those who decide to raise them anyway? Are they simply lunatics putting the society, especially children, at risk with their conspiracy theories? Does even the decision to make a documentary about a Croatian scientist who questions the vaccination dogma in the Balkan region pose a threat to our society? Is it possible to find common ground between those who claim there is no alternative to vaccination and those who do not oppose it, yet want to know if the vaccines we are given are safe?
