simply, no.

whereas some immunizations can prevent diseases, there can be side effects too.

if that h1n1 scare was still going on from several years ago and getting worse, i would choose not to get immunized from it.

i dont think i have ever had a flu shot (or if i have, it was when i was too young to remember it). i think i have had the flu maybe twice in the past 19 years... which basically shows how useless getting a flu shot really is. because if i was really susceptible to flu, i would have had it every year, if not several times each year.

Not if they are on food stamps, welfare, or the parents are SSI sum bums, because the sooner they get sick and die, the sooner the tax payers save money keeping the low life scum of society alive to keep breeding more of their own kind. I'd rather my tax dollars go to rabie shots for dogs than to keep the trash of america alive to keep destroying our country. You have to qualify to buy a house, land, car, etc, so why don't people have to qualify to breed and dump the costs onto the rest of us? If ya can't qualify, abortion and then sterilization should be mandatory. Anyone applying for food stamps &/or welfare should have to provide papers proving they've been sterilized. That way the tax payers would at least get their money's worth. Illegal aliens can find a job within a week of being here and yet the fat lazy stupid americans won't even get out of bed to look for a job. Think of how proud their worthless parents must be knowing their kids are lower than the illegals.

As a health care provider, you'd better think long and hard about what is required to be injected into your children. There is NO documented evidence these injection don't cause certain other traumatic, permanent injury. It SHOULD NOT be a requirement but a choice no matter who pays. Back in the 50's & 60's, the immunizations were NOT required but electively given.

Yes, the state should mandate immunizations clearly to protect other children who have had their scheduled shots! We as parents or let me say it this way....."I" as a mom absolutely hate when my child goes to school perfectly healthy and then comes home sick from other kids being shuffled off to school carrying contagious illnesses! This is something minor I know but it starts with parents having a little common sense!
You stupid ignorant F***!!!

You demand vaccination for other children so they do not infect you VACCINATED CHILD. Do you realize how stupid you sound in saying that. I mean after all, IF vaccinations really worked then your child should NEVER catch a bug from a NON VACCINATED child or anyone else.

Shut your hole, go sit down and let the big people talk.

VACCINES DO NOT WORK

It sure did wipe out polio..if any one remembers? Polio was a major killer of children for many years...Diptheria and small pox were major killers also..many,many sad days for their parents...Yes, Whooping cough was another killer....

My thing is.... I don't trust the government anymore, they do horrid things to test on unsuspecting people and than admit it years later. And won't pay for medical. Agent orange comes to mind!

I wonder what's next for the first time in history the FDA has approved a microchipped pill, one small step of suppression one giant leap for corruption!

http://www.examiner.com/article/fda-approves-...

Those of you that actually think this is to simply monitor health rather than invade your privacy and set the precedence for much more horid chip implementations later down the line You would be wrong! If history shows us anything it's that when the progress to such suppression and invasion as they are now it will only get worse and they will resort to any lies necessary to implement what they want to happen!

Count on it!

I don't see how anyone believes anything the govt/med industry says! There have been numerous politicians (cynthia mckinney,ron paul) who have come out and openly said that the govt is being paid off by the med industry (800 billion+) to keep the cures from cancer,aids (which was created in a us lab montauk ny and have had the cure for the whole time),blindness,the deaf, and they can even cure down syndrum! And ppl still listen to them. our govt has openly stated that they use mind control techniques that the nazis perfected to get us to buy,and watch things! In 1989 there were 5 to 10 things in vaccinations now there is over 35!!! If they cannot tell the truth about these things that would help so MANY ppl and u still trust them with advise then don't be upset when u go to the doctor and ur child is given a year to live or a life long illness! you can't blame ppl who dnt vaccinate their children you can't even blame the govt or the med industry you can only blame urself for not caring about ur kids enough to do more(thorough) research only you are the one to blame! Remember. Over 800 billion$! would you kill somebody for that amount?! They would!!

You're absolutely right. I remember Agent Orange, as well as some other horrid things that came to light years later, after they used Military Members as guinea pigs. It's a black mark on this Nation & I hope...I hope that the Gov't. isn't doing it anymore. But, in all fairness, the Gov't. has used Civilians in the same way & that came to light years later, also.

Children who are immunized have a 500% higher occurrence of disease than children who are not immunized.

Autism has also been proven to be caused by immunizations as well.

know your rights. NO school system , local, state or federal Govt can mandate ANY vaccinations.

I am addressing several comments.
1. You defeated your own argument. If vaccinations/immunizations worked, then it wouldn't matter if a child goes overseas and is exposed to others who have not been vaccinated. That would only prove that the shots given to your children, DO NOT WORK. Do your own research. The children who are coming down with whooping cough were given the whooping cough by immunizations. The shots were not being stored at the proper temperature which caused the shots to be defective. Even ABC broke down and did a story on it. Their research found that nearly 80% of vaccines/immunizations were being stored improperly and can cause other health problems.
2. In response to immunizations ridding the world of Polio. They didn't. It has the exact same symptoms of spinal meningitus. It was only renamed. Literally. The same year that spinal meningitus was founded and "recongnized" was the same year that Polio had been "wiped out". The case numbers for Polio went to 0 while spinal meningitus had close to the same number of cases as Polio the previous year. The vaccines killed more then they helped. Nature took over and we became more resistant to the disease, which has happened throughout history time and again.
3. Autism. If you haven't experienced autism, please do not comment. Vaccines/Immunizations are a BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY. I am friends with a man who helped create that industry and he now fights against it. My son was born healthy. After recieving his first Hep B vaccine,(which by the way, is cultured in aborted baby fetuses. So if you are pro life, maybe you should rethink your beliefs or at the very least, research what you have injected into your children) he experienced massive brain swelling as well as fevers of 105. It delayed his learning and he was diagnosed with autism afterwards. He will be four soon and he is now a completely healthy little boy. Reason: I discontinued all vaccinations, I placed him on a raw vegan diet and I told his pediatrician to eat dirt. He is no longer considered autistic. Autism isn't the only disorder on the rise. All auto immune diseases, ADD, ADHD, food allergies, chronic ear infections, juvenile diabetes, bipolar disorder, asthma, and cancers in children are growing at astronomical rates. You should research vaccinations and SIDS and IMR. It will make you vomit. Stop listening to what everyone else tells you. Do your own research, both sides if necessary, and then make a decision.
4. Number of shots your parents recieved: 1940's = 2, 1950's = 3 Number of shots you recieved: 1960's & 70's = 5 (sometimes twice)
Number of shots your children recieve: 1990's = 9, 2000's = 11 (some of them two and now suggesting three times each)I would hope that I shouldn't have to do the math for you. All health issues are on the rise. It isn't only that we over medicate, vaccinate, and immunize, it is our food consumption and how we live our everyday lives.
5: I agree with providing for your own. It isn't the job of the government to pay for everything. But in saying that, I also don't believe the government has the right to force me into giving my child something that is dangerous and harmful. I would rather take my chances with the diseases. At least then, his body functions properly to fight them off. He would become more resistant to future mutated strains and actually have a fighting chance to live a healthier and longer life.
If they sign this into law, we will move immediately out of state. Protecting my child is that important to me.

If they refuse to treat the real stealth infections of Autism do you think they are going to treat the 90% of all psych disease they know have infectious organisms DNA attached to their own? No they are not, but your Congress is going to give Billions more to other countries cos' that's how your congressional leaders make their money....

The Repubs. CUT OUR FOOD PROGRAMS AND MEDICAL ASSISTANCE FOR WHAT?

“Now is a particularly important time to send that message, as we face the looming specter of sequestration that we are all talking about and working hard to prevent. If nothing is done to avert sequestration, we will face almost a 450-million-dollar cut to U.S. security assistance for Israel. This would include over 100 million in cuts to cooperative missile defense programs. These would damage the security of our nation and our ally Israel, and they must be averted. I urge my colleagues to pass the legislation before us.”
----------
As they take their 5 week paid vacation on your tax dollars. You remember the Repubs. bringing birth control to the floor for the 38th. time as they legislated getting rid of the Healthcare bill
---so they could bitch about JOBS JOBS JOBS.

KNOWING thousands of mums have called asking them for help treating their kids....
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

That 450 million to keep them in business buying US up would sure go a long way to start to treat the masses that must be helped in know spirochetal preventions, known and unknown treatments, and getting rid of the vectors of disease that now carry them caused by ignoring the real AIDS for over 30yrs.
