About a third of leprosy cases each year in the US are the result of contact with armadillos.

I don't think they should be allowed to MAKE your children take any kind of medication! It should be the parents decision!

From what I've learned vaccines today are NOT what used to be given. Far from it. Used to be a vaccine against a handful of health issues - diptheria, mumps,measles, tetanus.
Today's vaccine covers an armload of health issues.I'll look this up and get back to you on it.
I strongly feel it sometimes brings on autism. I don't rightly put too much confidence in these scientific researches.
The conclusion made about autism could be and probably is for the benefit of 'Big Pharma' working in direct collusion with FDA.
After all - if the vaccines were declared HARMFUL, think how much $millions$ the drug companies would then lose! Drug companies DON'T care about our health; they care about making MONEY only.
Hey MyName... Let me tell you a story. A guy, Wakefield is his name, did a research paper on vax causing autism, and made the link claiming that vax did indeed cause autism. This meme took off like a fire in California, and was raging wildly before, guess what? It was proven that Wakefield was a crank, a fraud, a liar. His paper was retracted, his license revoked, and he no longer can practice. Problem is, now all the conspiracy wackaloons out there think that this falsified meme is for real, and that "Big Pharma" is the bad guy, and probably chem trails and bigfoot, and whatever else people like that want to believe.

Vax does not cause autism. Not getting vaxxed does increase the risk of your kids coming down with a preventable disease, and possibly dying from it, but not before they have the chance to give it to someone else, thus perpetuating the disease. I just saw the other day, a church in Texas had a case of 25 or 26 ( I forget the actual count but it was needlessly high)kids coming down with measles. Why, because the the church they attended spouted off ignorant drivel like "let god heal you" instead of, "hey it might be a great idea to immunize" or "hey, if you get sick go to a doctor"

Vaccinate your kids. If you are too dang stupid to do it, then the state should be able to step in and see it gets done. Some people need to be protected from themselves, or at least their parents...

Take a stand against the replacement of the Southern people, take a stand against the government sanctioned waves upon waves of 3rd world immigration. Visit the link below and support the League of the South on October 12, 2013 in Murfreesboro and Shelbyville Tennessee and SAY NO to the demographic displacement of your fellow Southerners!:

This has got to be by far the most dumbest question ever asked in mankind. I'll say it this way. Don't give your child ANY vaccinations at all and see what happens and who will you try and sue first.

Maybe you need to check out the other side of the story besides the one pushed by those who are profit driven.

I do not read a bunch of crap. Like the flu vaccine we know what it is. I have traveled the US and abroad and will take the necessary vaccine to be in that country or state. I had ALL my shots as a child and continue to get them now. I have made it this far with them and will continue to get the reccommended vacs when scheduled. Thank you though. I want to hear from experience and not from written material. After all it is America and we do have choices and options.

I have lost all faith in the FDA and the Federal Government. Up until about two years I really didnt believe that they would hurt the American people for profit. However, I was attending a seminar on depression and anxiety and learned that there is a drug that can cure 85% of chemical depression but the US government will not approve it's use. Why! Because if you take away all the sales of Anti- depressants in the US it would damage the enconomy. Sad that we will put money over people. I trust nothing FDA now says about drugs.
