I am wondering which childhood disease you are talking about.
Here is a very good link you may want to peruse: http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/mmwr_wk.html
Check out how 'many' children actually have those diseases.
I am sure you are aware that the meningitis due to measles was not even reported until after the measles vaccine was on the market.
Then they 'guestimated' how many after effects to measles they may have had based on the side effects to the measles vaccine.
Everything you mentioned can also be caused by the vaccine and oftentimes is.
