The idea that vaccines are all good all the time, that there is no risk, no harm, no side effects and that vaccines actually protect against disease is simply wrong.

Where are the results of blood draws and titers of children to show antibody levels after vaccination? Where are the longitudinal studies that show blood draw results and titer levels a year later, two years later, five years later? Have you or your children been monitored to assure antibody levels? NO.

Vaccines are a guess. A shot in the dark.

In England now, the fools who didn't vaccinate are watching their children get hospitalized with measles right now. It's an epidemic. As they watch their children suffer in pain, they see teenagers who were vaccinated skateboarding past the hospital, healthy, smart, and happy with not a trace of autism. Is that justice? Oh yeah, some of the measles patients will die. Call it survival of the fittest, if you must.
Parents who refuse to vaccinate should sign a "I you so" agreement with the government that says the hospital can seize their house and bank accounts to pay for future measles treatment. Let the parents assume the risk! Not the taxpayers who are not superstitious. Those parents should lose very penny to reimburse doctors.
Pass a "PARENT REIMBURSEMENT ACT" in every state. All parents who refuse to vaccinate who get sick kids have to pay for everyone they infect and the doctors. It could be millions. Let them put up or shut up. Screw them!!
I was vaccinated as a child. Then when I was 15, I was in the Hospital for two and a half weeks, every day they drew lots and lots of blood, finally I was sent home, and after I was home for 2 months, I got a letter in the mail, from the State, it read, " you have the measles".

Long story short, the vaccine did not work for me.
no one cares

So who's paying for all those 47,00 paralyzed kids in India after Ole Billy Gates nicely made sure they got protected by offering those great Polio vaccines?
Which is worse? 47,000 paralyzed kids or 47 million paralyzed kids.

Seems like pretty easy math.

Vaccines are not 100% protection.
That's why herd immunity is important.

You get vaccinated, you are less likely to get the disease if exposed to it. However, if no one else gets vaccinated, you are going to get exposed to it over and over and over and over until you finally get it.

The problem is that people like "Hey" believe that if Vaccines are only 99.99% effective, they should be scrapped in favor of literally nothing because they aren't 100.00% effective.

You asked a simple poll question. I thought this was to be a poll. mybad

There are a billion + people in India. Polio commonly results in paralyzation.

Failing to vaccinate the public would result epidemic infection and, as a result, millions would end up paralyzed.

Alternately, the vaccines prevents wide spread infection, but effects a very small percentage of people negatively.

There is no third option.

So, either LOTS of people are paralyzed or very few people are paralyzed. Pick one.

All trials should be published.

Big Pharma does have a problem with claiming that some drugs are more effective than they really are.

However, that's not the same thing as the conspiracy theorist nutjobs who claim that vaccines cause retroactive gene mutations in the mother's matrilinal line going back 3 generations.

Herd immunity is a myth. There are too many undervaccinated adults to be anywhere close to establishing herd immunity. Without herd immunity right now, are diseases out of control? NO.

Nuggin, I sure don't want polio to resurface. We had the vaccine on a lump of sugar. It is said we are very fortunate not to have contracted the disease. We were guinea pigs.

LOL!

Idiot. Don't link to a blog for facts. If you want vaccine rates go to the CDC or the WHO.

Not some jackass' blog.

Learn the difference between science and opinion. Then realize all you have is opinion and STFU when science is talking.

I can see some one getting a small pox vac. Or Polio vac.. There are risks with vaccines just like with surgery etc... Those vaccines are worth the risk. Flu shots that for the most part are a joke offer for no protection. Growing up for 17 years I never had the flu I had chicken pox stomach viruses never the flu but when I was 17 mother made me get a flu shot because of the media propaganda that my grandmother was watching on tv. Guess what I got the flu several weeks later and my arm hurt for a week. Any body can die from the flu just like heart attacks healthy people without blockages young and old can die from heart attack etcc same with the flu. Sotheby's real issue is polio and small pox vaccines, that type of serious serious stuff. A cancer vaccine if it really worked would be great . Now flu shots to e that is a FDA big pharma money making load of crap I bet if some real studies were done on flu shots would probably just see the benefit of a flu shot as the placebo effect. I am not saying in any way that a healthy lifestyle is not beneficial that's probably your best defense having a healthy immune system not one overloaded with 30 flu vaccines.
