For documentation of that fact and an interesting discussion on the entire issue, type the word vaccines in the search window on this site (LDSLiving.com) and go to the comment sections of all three articles dated 8-9-11. There you will also find information about how to deal with concerns about missionary vaccinations in an appropriate manner.
