LOL! there are still a bunch of JWs out there who adhere to the 50s WT suspicion/condemnation of vaccinations.
And those people had children, many of whom believe the same thing when it comes to the health of THEIR offspring.
Although I tend to agree that children are vaccinated too much and too often, which is hard on their immune systems,
On this I disagree. Children who are not vaccinated pose a risk to the rest of the world, specifically with crippling diseases like Polio. They put MY children at risk. I can not think of one thing my child got vaccinated against that I would accept that the 'illness' was better than the vaccine.
When I said this at my sister's wedding, my mother (active JW) vehemently disagreed with me and said it was 'worldly teachings.' Lucky for me, my sister's husband twin (both twins are PhDs --however her specialty is in communicable diseases with a credential towards vaccinations, LOL!!!) flat out told my mother she was wrong.
She began citing FACT (not religious rhetoric) that proved I was right. My mother was most disconcerted and made faces of disgust that my 'worldy' knowledge was correct.
JWs have quack ideas for medicines, and the attitudes toward vaccinations have not changed all that much.
