The people of Finland might disagree with you.

"When investigators explored the clinical picture of the 54 children with narcolepsy in 2010, they found that 50 had received the pandemic vaccine before symptom onset, which started abruptly."

50 out of 54 cases tied directly to the vaccine, that's not so rare, now is it?

Seems like the vaccinations to prevent the spread of diseases to more good than harm to people.

i'm not going to follow your narc link. It's quite obvious to the vast majority of thinkers that Tb,polio etc are about as bad as anything and those things should be prevented and most avenues should be closed to those not on the wagon so to speak.

They would NEVER use children in the foster system to experiment on, forcing them to take drugs against their will....

They have the public interest at heart, really... they do.

I am not real sure where most of you are from, but in West Tennessee, the Carroll County Board of Education has made it a requirement for ALL students attending schools within the district to have so many types if vaccines; chicken pox, polio, etc. It has been this way for as long as I have gone to school there.
Waiver forms for personal or religious exemptions are freely available. Forced medical treatment is an assault and a violation of the 1st & 14th amendment to the Constitution.

TENNESSEE CODE ANNOTATED
Title 49 Education
Chapter 6 Elementary and Secondary Education
Part 50 Immunization of School Children
49-6-5001. General provisions.

(b)(1) It is the responsibility of the parents or guardian of children to have their children immunized, as required by subsection (a).

(2) In the absence of an epidemic or immediate threat of an epidemic, this section shall not apply to any child whose parent or guardian files with school authorities a signed, written statement that the immunization and other preventive measures conflict with the parent's or guardian's religious tenets and practices, affirmed under the penalties of perjury.

(c)(1) No children shall be permitted to attend any public school, nursery school, kindergarten, preschool or child care facility until proof of immunization is given the admissions officer of the school, nursery school, kindergarten, preschool or child care facility except as provided in subsection (b).

(2) No child shall be denied admission to any school or school facility if the child has not been immunized due to medical reasons if the child has a written statement from the child's doctor excusing the child from the immunization.

As you can plainly see, both religious & medical exemptions are recognized by the state of Tennessee.

If someone in Carroll County told you otherwise, they are PRESCRIBING medical treatment without a license to do so & face criminal charges for impersonating a medical practitioner.

Get them to write it down, then take it to a lawyer, you'll be a millionaire & the poor soul who thought they could circumvent the law will be in prison.

If these shots didnt save more lives than they take they wouldnt be offered. i dont think stating that a few have been killed or crippled because of CERTAIN vaccinations calls for anything but the removal and re-assesment of that PARTICULAR shot.

Make informed choices before vaccinating. This link is a wonderful resource that gives you the facts about vaccines good and bad. http://www.nvic.org/
To say they are all beneficial is not true and to say they are all bad for everyone is also not true. Please especially read about Gardisil. It is being forcefully pushed and has never even completed the mandatory trials. Merck stands to make loads and people are being VERY injured by it.

You can get this form from any public health dept. it is green, I do believe.
The medical exemption would come from your doctor, if you, or a family member has had an adverse event post vaccine, make sure it is documented as such & obtain a medical waiver.
Some health food stores have forms citing the state statute along with the other information regarding constitutional law, these will shut the mouth on any school principal who possesses even 3 brain cells.

Blah blah Danger, we know how you like to fuss and argue. I'm sure you will be able to explain to be how having children who contract these diseases wouldnt allow for faster mutations of these diseases ( the natural process after all) which will weaken the defenses of the children receiving the shots. Having a great uncle crippled by Polio I guess gives me a different perspective....after all, an immunization has all but elimated that deadly disease here in America.
Having a child injured by vaccine gives you a very different perspective as well.

Other children that are so sick they can't get their shots.. leukemia, cancers, etc and yes even my kids w/ their shots. Some shots don't prevent illness just makes it so its not as bad ie chicken pox. We use to get small pox shots they stopped giving them because nobody was getting them anymore.. a few kids come back from other countries back to the states and had them. Those children could of killed hundreds if they didn't catch it right away. If you don't want to get your children shots that is fine w/ me just don't send them to school with the other kids.
Children who have been vaccinated with certain vaccinations must stay away from those with compromised immune systems for a certain length of time because they will expose that person. Maybe after vaccinations they should stay home during that period.
