Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors
Study from researchers from Emory determined memories can be passed down genetically in the form of genetic switches that are triggered in certain cases.

You receive the majority of vaccinations during the first 6 months of life. Read an immunization schedule. There’s also no sound evidence that vaccines cause any harm, even attenuated ones.
