I took the Polio Vaccine in the second grade, I think, and had to take a Booster Shot in the 3rd or 4th grade, I think...sometime around there.<quoted text>
The problem here, as always with you internet loons, is that you think that both sides of the debate have the same quality and quantity of information. They don't.
A man in a tinfoil hat posting that the Earth is hollow is not equal the entire rest of geology telling him it's not.
A person claiming WITHOUT evidence that SV40 is responsible for anything is not equal to the endless studies which have shown no such link.
Further, you are trying (and failing) to hold the world up to some ideal standard that does not exist.
This is not a question of whether or not something can achieve an imaginary perfect solution, but one of whether or not more good is done than harm.
You've got no evidence that the polio vaccine has caused ANY damage, yet we DO know that the polio vaccine eradicated... wait for it.... polio.
If you had a child crippled by polio you would be on this same forum ranting and raving about how medical science has failed to provide you with a cure for polio.
Instead, because you have been saved from that horrible outcome, you're here claiming that the people who actually PREVENTED that from happening are failures because you _THINK_ that _MAYBE_ something _MIGHT_ be wrong.
Nice try. Go back to flipping burgers and playing x-box. The grown ups are too busy trying to save people's lives to deal with the likes of you.
The School sent a note home to our Parents and I don't remember if they had to give permission or if it was to just notify them of it. Anyway we all lined up and took them.
Now, I'm 65 years old and in darn good health as far as I know, better than many of my Friends of the same age. I've been healthy all of my Life...I've been lucky. So, if the Polio Vaccine harms People, it certainly didn't me or any of my Classmates, as far as I know.
But, I do know somebody, 6 years older than me, who contracted Polio before the vaccine came out and that Person has been crippled all of that Person's Life, from it. So, I think it's wonderful stuff, or it was then. It stopped the Polio!
