Are vaccines safe and effective? Should they be mandatory for school, work, or any other reason? Why or why not? Do you feel you know everything that you need to, in order to make the best decision for your family? What do you think about people who make the opposite choice?

Safe; mostly. There always is that percent risk of complications with taking vaccines. Effective; same answer. Pseudoscience is the biggest problem with discerning the difference between relative safety and no safety at all. Please use caution when reading or investing into arguments like this without fact checking and/or verifying evidence.

What is relative safety in a population as opposed to the relative safety for an individual child? A small risk at the population level says nothing to me about the level of risk that an individual person takes on.

The ones that are modified are safe. There are also ones with a low risk factor for actually getting a person ill.
It is however better in most cases to already have the “recipe“ for required antibodies inside your system.

No. Some can help but others can cause severe illnesses and injury. Don’t believe one shot can help you or prevent you from something because within a blink of an eye something worse can happen.
