Anti vaccines

    They are selfish and ignorant and put those who genuinely can't be vaccinated (for real medical reasons) at greater risk than they need to be. People have become blase to many diseases because society has forgotten just how devastating they can be and now some of these that are easily preventable are making a comeback.

    It's also a sad indictment of the scientific community that this came from them and was allowed to fester. They failed and did too little too late.

    Let's not even get started on the media ... they'll regurgitate any old BS.

    Everyone is vaccinated in my family. As far as I know, all the JWs I know have vaccinated their children.

    The JW lady at work is anti vac but she doesn't have children. I got the sugar cube with the polio vac when I was in school. And supposedly, Europe has better vacs than the USA because they aren't afraid of people suing the companies like they are in america.

    Until I watched a show on small pox and how it can even make pustules in the lining of your brain, I didn't think of it as worse than the chicken pox. It's a painful and horrible way to die and if people refused to take the vacs for it, we would still have people dying of it in mass.

    I said as much to the JW lady at work.

    My wife is just now getting over a bout of shingles. I'd like to invite all those people having "chicken pox parties" to come over and see what's going to happen to their kids down the road. She'd tried to get the shingles vaccination but couldn't find a place that had it. Apparently it's in short supply.

    As a child of the '40s I remember how when we had a communicable disease such as mumps or measles or chicken pox, we were quarantined to our homes. A nurse from the city would come to our homes to make the diagnosis and then place a Quarantine sign at the front door of the house. I was quarantined myself twice, once for mumps and again for measles. Vaccines were sparsely administered in those days. I was confined to bed until I recovered and thought it a nice vacation from school.

    Vaccines can be beneficial if they are safely produced and do not contain anything which may cause harm to any human. There is evidence, however, that vaccines may contain harmful chemicals which are unnecessary. When I hear of children or adults experiencing life threatening reactions or permanent disability in response to a vaccination I am very curious. Why?

    Forgot to mention, the nurse came to visit each day to monitor progress, even on Saturdays and Sundays. Sometimes a doctor would come too. Those were the days when doctors made house calls routinely and inexpensively.

    I'm sure this is a result of those not getting their children vaccinated.

    As a child I ended up with red measles, german measles, chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough and roseola. Parents were dead against getting vaccines. Next time I'm at the docs I will ask if I can get these again or can adults still get the vaccines as to what they got as kids. Just curious. Our neighbor had gotten his flu shot and they didn't know what had caused his paralysis from head to toe. It was so bad they had to tape his eyes shut at night so they wouldn't dry out. In the end he ended up with Guillain-Barre syndrome. It wasn't until months and months later they connected his guillian-barre syndrome with the flu shot. He's highly allergic to the flu shot as he found out. Today he is back to normal but for sure you can get Guillain-Barre syndrome from it. The specialists told him he was very lucky that it started in his feet first and spread upwards. If the syndrome starts in the head and works down it could have killed him. He had also gotten an out of court pay settlement from the drug company

    Given I live in Portland Oregon, across the river from Vancouver WA which is at present in a public health crisis with a measles outbreak, I believe in vaccinations. It's proven they work. We need 93% of the population to be vaccinated for it to work. So those who can't vaccinate for legitimate reasons are no problem.

    Those who don't do it because they don't believe science, should be forced to do it or isolated in some way.

    Putting everyone at risk is ridiculous.
