I don't want some big business lobbying my government to force "medicate" me when it has been proven that these things are dangerous as hell.

Vaccines undergo rigorous testing by the FDA and World Health Organization. They have been deemed very safe.
If everyone was vaccinated, it would be much more economical for everyone (saving around $18 per person that's vaccinated) because the costs of treating all the diseases in the world far outweigh the cost of vaccinating everyone.

Vaccines have been proven to save 3 000 000 lives per year.
Vaccines are 100% effective.
Polio has been eradicated from the USA because of vaccinations. (However, some cases have reappeared because people refuse to be vaccinated).
Smallpox has been eradicated worldwide because of vaccinations.

Vaccines are almost 100% effective. Not 100%. Just a minor correction.

Quackwatch, rationalwiki, and sciencebasedmedicine are awesome resources for fighting against quackery.
