Friends asking for advice on Immunisation.

A friend of my partner has a little boy and coming up for jab time. Anyhow the girlfriend rang me today and asked for some advice on immunisation.
Now I want to try and help and give balanced info,as much as poss!!! I don't want to frighten her.
I also remember some excellent links and some books out there that are balanced, but to be honest searching through the minefield of vax threads is a little daunting sorry!
So can I have some reminders and any helpful balanced sites/books. Jimjams I think of you as the Oracle on the matter!

Thanks.

I've posted about this book before. I think it is one of the best. "What your doctor may not tell you about vaccines" It is written by an M.D. - Stephanie Cave and at the back has a modified vaccination schedule that has been very helpful to us, although with the new 5 in 1 some changes may not be possible anymore

Thanks. Any more?

Cheers Socci, I have ordered the books now, so I can pass them onto her at a later date.
I'll pass all the info on here.
Just worried I'll come across too bolshy though.
Thanks.
