(CBS/WSPA) – Are Amazon, Facebook and Google partly to blame for the rise in the number of kids who aren’t vaccinated? Doctor says maybe.

The number of children not getting vaccinated has quadrupled since 2001.

There are dozens of documentaries online challenging the scientific consensus that vaccines are safe.

Amazon pulled several off of its site after being contacted by at least one congressman.

Facebook has pledged to “reduce the ranking” of pages that “spread misinformation about vaccinations.”

Google said it’s “reducing recommendations of content that can misinform users in harmful ways.”

And Pinterest stopped serving results for searches related to vaccines.
