I don’t care if parents don’t want their kids vaccinated. But if they don’t let their kids get vaccinations for particularly dangerous diseases such measles, home school em and keep em out of daycare. I don’t want em near my kids. Kids who are too young to get vaccinated can and do get sick as a result of foolish, irresponsible parents who don’t get their older children vaccinated and bring them around other children.
Yeah, I totally agree with this. As far as I’m concerned you have every right not to vaccinate your child, just keep them away from mine. I do think that the vaccine schedule has gotten a little out of control, mostly since it’s a cash cow for pharmaceutical companies, but it cannot be denied that vaccinations have been a wild success for things like smallpox and polio.
Forced vaccinations will never happen here.
"A 1992 study published in The American Journal of Epidemiology shows that children die at a rate 8 times greater than normal within three days after getting a DPT vaccination.
A preliminary study by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) found children who received the HiB vaccine … were found to be 5 times more likely to contract the disease than children who had not received the vaccine.
In the New England Journal of Medicine July 1994 issue a study found that over 80% of children under 5 years of age who had contracted whooping cough had been fully vaccinated.
In 1977 Dr Jonas Salk (inventor of the Salk polio vaccine) testified with other scientists that 87% of the polio cases which occurred in the US since 1970 were the by-product of the polio vaccine.
The Sabin oral polio vaccine (OPV) is the only known cause of polio in the us today.
The February 1981 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association found that 90% of obstetricians and 66% of pediatricians refused to take the rubella vaccine."
Getting vaccinated is more likely to kill you or your children.
The princess is back with more garbage.
If you believe an anti-vaccine website that also reports the myth that the MMR vaccine CAUSES autism.
Another SWING and a miss on your part. Perhaps it is time to admit that you are incapable of clear and reasoned thought…
The main thrust of the argument (and don’t squeal like a little bitch) is that forced vaccinations are coming. If the most civilised people on earth, the Swiss, are doing it, then we are not far behind.
No, I doubt this will happen. What may and should happen is unvaccinated children will not be allowed to attend public schools, public daycares, institutions that receive state and federal funds, etc… There is nothing wrong with that. Do what you want with yourselves and your kids. But live with the consequences so the rest of us don’t have to.
Are you aware that there is a measles epidemic in England right now, largely brought on by unfounded fears that the vaccine causes autism? Kids are getting measles. And dying. What’s worse is that they are coming in contact with kids who are too young to get the vaccine but whose parents would have them get it. THOSE kids are dying too.
