Vaccines good or not? Confusing?

Many people say that vaccines are VERY good.
Many people say that vaccines are VERY bad.
Some say that it's dangerous other that isn't.
Many say: I don't know, I'm confuse (like me), or I don't have many informations about it must be great..

Then,
is vaccines propaganda, a real solution, the worstest thing ever, or anything elses?

I asked a question but I'm sure that it will be a great debate!

    May 28 2011: You would be hard pressed to find a single respectable scientist who believes that vaccination is anything but the single most effective way of preventing death and disease that humans have ever come across. The people who stir up concern over vaccination are generally uninformed individuals who do not trust governments, and the needle is an obvious sinister symbol for them to attack. I should perhaps mention that on many sites condemning vaccination you will actually see a lot of researchers mentioned, however in all likelihood these individuals died before 1900 so they're not exactly up to date on the stats. The stats which demonstrate very clearly how miraculous vaccination has been. There are also stats on what happens when popular mistrust prompts parents not to vaccinate, when the herd-immunity drops enough, children die.
