May 4, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Chattanoogan.com

Immunizations are one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to protect children against childhood diseases and Tennessee law requires documented immunizations.

I think people should choose whether they vaccinate themselves or their children, in the context that if they don't follow the rules, there is a separate school for their kids to go to where none of the kids are vaccinated, or home school, or online school, aka alternative public school options. But I also believe that people should be able to marry whom they want, enbibe if they want, put any substance into their own bodies they wish, as long as they aren't in anyone else's way or spending other tax payers money to do it, but if you or your kids are receiving any federal aid, government help, etc, you have to follow restrictive rules because you aren't a paying customer anyway. but that's just me.
Why does someone get their kids vaccinated?

<quoted text> Conspiracy means two or more working together to do evil. I guess you believe two or more are not working together in government to do evil? Try thinking for yourself sometime, you might just like it more than thinking like government educated kids that are taught to think like they are told to think. Never question what the government tells you little sheep. They never lie!
Read cafefully: I did noT say that you were part of a conspicacy--it is at others are egnaged in a conspiracy against others.

When you claim that others cannoT think for themselves when they disagree with your peculiar ideas is no argument. You make such claims because you especially are unable to think for yourself.

People who opt out of vaccines for their children are hindering our "herd immunity." In order to prevent epidemics of diseases like measles, somewhere between 85% and 90% of the population has to be vaccinated against it. At that level, even people falling in the 7% vaccine failure group will remain safe because nobody around them is capable of transmitting the disease. When parents choose not to vaccinate their kids over some thoroughly debunked conspiracy theories, they are putting everybody at risk. It IS selfish. It IS irresponsible.
You are sorely misinformed, you think like a doctor and doctors only know medicine not wellness and health. Research and science will prove you way wrong. Don't be ignorant, be better and do some homework.

I'm actually conflicted on this issue. If an adult doesn't want to vaccinate, sure, not prob. But not allowing their children to...hum...
So, I'd be interested in arguments from both sides.(But no conspiracy theories, please.)

You are drawing a baseless distinction between medicine and wellness and health.

So it is you that is sorely misinformed.

I think yes shots should be mandated for the health and safety of our children. In the past 2 months children have gone over sea's and come back w/ whopping cough and mumps because those countries don't mandate or can't afford shots. I watched a program that said they did research on shots and autism they said the shots had nothing to do w/ it. I don't know if they do or not but seems to me if they did more kids would get autism especially since the shots now are the shots our parents and we got. When you decide to have children you take on their wants and needs no the government shouldn't have to pay for anybody's kids. The parents should pay for their health care, food, education, etc that's most of the problem w/ government today ppl except the government to pay for everything which is us the tax payers not the government.
I would rather have the mumps latter in life than be born with autism.

How is it that adults question treatment of themselves everyday but never hesitate to have their infants injected with toxins. That's insane to me. I've seen many people criticize flu shots claiming that they are more harm than good and elect not to have them. Adults have the ability to refuse flu shots and the government only recommends them. That's because they can't force adults to be vaccinated. On the other hand those same adults never think twice to have their children vaccinated. I have a friend with a toddler who did in fact contract whooping cough after a vaccine. I admire any parent who questions any treatment for their child.

Perhaps you could get the mumps before you procreate.

Would help the gene pool.

Your understanding of science is quite dismally inadequate.( your friend with toddler is anecdotal only and has no value as science.)

Atleast I went to school. Last time I checked, those vaccines cured a lot of major diseases. But keep telling me that vaccines are bad while you could have been born with polio without vaccination.

What if its mandated and parents refuse to immunize? What should be the next step? Legally? There is small chance of on set of autism from some vaccines. Some say its still with it. If a parent refuses, what then? Ideas? Or let it be?

If folks are worried about the rights of their child perhaps they should address the playmates of their child. Your child can easily communicate a virus to a playmate and if it virulent enough and if the child is susceptible enough and gets ill and perhaps dies from the virus your child gave his playmate, you get the idea. It goes to the rights of your child's playmate as well.
Autisim has been persued by the trial lawyers for yeasrs. Any disease the lawyers can attribute to any drug, or other manufactured product becomes fair game to a lawsuit. Senator H.Clinton made sure of the trial lawyers could pursue the manufacturers of vaccines and as a result these vaccines are now made overseas, commonly in France. The Pasture instate is somewhat responsible for the quality control of these same vaccines, so at least we have quality vaccines for our children. Autism being caused by the influenza vaccine s questionable at best due to the Trial lawyers hands getting into the act, they like lawsuits and Sen. Clinton made sure her fellow lawyers had plenty of manufacturers to litigate.
The vaccine does have a small risk to everyone that receives it, but the risk is far outweighed by the risk of permanent injury or death from influenza which is a serious killer. We haven't had a major pandemic since just after the first world war. Google "Pandemic" you will get the info and it will scare you.
Govt. mandating your child to have the vaccine. Is not the whole truth. The states that do require the vaccine only require that all children attending school have the vaccine, if you don't want your child to have it may home school or they will not be allowed to attend a public school. So as you see. they do not mandate that all children get the vaccine, just those that will attend a public school. That is no different that you not letting your neighbors child into your home while he is coughing and potentially spreading the flu virus to you and your family. Have you ever had someone cough into your face? Were you offended or concerned about getting a cold or flu? I myself have admonished a person that coughed into my face. I don't want their disease including the possibility of getting a very resistant form of TB. I prefer to die in my bed of old age when I'm 90 rather than at my current age many years before my calculated 90.

Flu vaccine given to pregnant mothers, that's how. Mercury preferentially partitions to the placenta.

Rhogam, for RH nrgative, has twice the mercury content of the flu shot & is given 3x during pregnancy.
Hep B vaccine is given on the day of birth.

See how that works?

Acrodynia, more commonly called Pink Disease, ravaged children in Europe, North America and Australia in the first half of the 20th Century. Besides developing bright pink hands and feet, common symptoms included social withdrawal, lack of eye contact; loss of language; repetitive and self-injurious behaviors; body-rocking; toe-walking; sensitivity to light, noise and touch; low muscle tone; immune disorders and respiratory problems.
After decades of scientific dead-ends, the primary cause of this mysterious illness was found to be exposure to widely promoted and purportedly “safe” medicines given to infants and young children when their teeth started growing in. The drugs contained inorganic mercury. Scientists later found that 1 in every 500 children exposed to the mercury powders developed the disease as the result of an unusually strong sensitivity to mercury, likely due to their genetics. Once mercury was removed from the drugs, no new cases appeared, although those exposed still live a lifetime of suffering.

So, these individuals who had a preexisting sensitivity to ethyl mercuty were1/500.
Their grand children's autism rate is 1/25.

Imagine that.
