Prominent attorney Robert F. Kennedy Junior says vaccines are making children sick. 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just approved one of the most sought after vaccines in recent decades. It's the world's first vaccine to prevent dengue fever — a disease so painful that its nickname is "breakbone fever."
