The vaccine myth on Oprah

Check it out--my mom told me to look up Oprah because she had this show on vaccines. You guys may have heard Jenny McCarthy talk about how her child became was diagnosed with autism shortly after getting a vaccine shot. After doing some reading on the comments that Oprah got back, there are a TON of people that believe this myth.
It was interesting that Oprah brought on another doctor to talk about it--he pointed out in McCarthy's book that she said her child wasn't smiling like the other kids before he even had the shot, putting holes in her story. McCarthy does believe in vaccinations, but believes there should be a safer schedule for them.

Dr. Bob--is there absolutely no danger in giving vaccines at birth when nervous system is still developing?
