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.
The shots they give children nowdays ARE NOT THE SAME as what they gave to us in the 60's, 70's. Now they are putting mercury in them, along with other things that we don't need, or has anything to do with what they are trying to control. Don't be ignorant folks, do your homework. Don't just ask your doctor about whats in these shots, they are all for giving shots.

If you want the truth about whats in the immunizations these days, ask a Chiropractor.

Vaccinations are important. They seem different now as compared to when I was young.

Whooping cough is on the rise you idots!!!! When your kid gets it then you can blame your own stupid self.
97,1% of pertussis cases were fully vaccinated.

Maybe pertussis, like the mumps vaccine, simply doesn't work.

Okay here is my opinion on some of your statements. If my child is not vaccinated (which he isn't) stopped his shots at 6 months of age. He is now 3 and completely healthy. If your shots work why is everyone worried about my child who has had no shots. Also its not true about your child has to have his shots to attend school just a scare tactic from the public school system saying your child has to have shots to attend school completely untrue. With all the junk that are in these vaccines that is why I refuse them for my child. For one thermisol (spell ck.) which is a mercury based ingredient. Isn't that why they did away with mercury based thermometers yet your letting your doctor inject that into a small child. Well not me. Request the package insert the next time you give your child a vaccination and then do the research on what is in some of them. So I believe the state should not mandate vaccinations it should be the parents choice.

I have to say i agree with you on a few things as far as taking care of your childrens health care, food ect., but do not agree with the fact of immunizations being forced. I work in the health care field myself and with all the research i have done over the years, i have found out that there are links to immunizations and autism for that matter other effects it also has on children. I do understand with traveling to other countries are high risks for all kinds of diseases, there are precaustions for those as well. Our bodies are capable of healing themselves without all these medicines being pushed on to people, but that is what only people are taught and know. It comes down to money most of the time. Man made drugs put into our bodies is not the answer. I beleive in natural healing as i had an illness I thought antibiotics was the answer but no to find out what has been healing me was the education on natural medicines.

Immunizations should NOT be required. It is much easier for people who do not have a child with autism to be so non-chalant about the fact that immunizations may very well be causing autims or increasing a child's chance of having autism. As a parent of a child with autism who noticed a huge difference in my child after his MMR shot, I am a firm believer that the shots ARE NOT for every child. I encourage all parents to do their own research before they make the decision to follow the 'standard' immunization schedule. One size does not fit all when it comes to immunizations.
You say the vaccination caused your son/ daughter to become autism. It is something someone is BORN with, you don't catch it.

Do some research before you blame something else on what has happened. They have studied and found out vaccines have NOT caused autism.

You believe everything the doctors n researchers tell you? I don't! They want to make money like everyone else. They are not going to ever admit the vaccines cause anything bc they want all kids to have em. FYI... They are not going to admit anything that may keep people from vaccinating their kids!

Really? Of 151 families who were compensated for vaccine injury, and were willing to discuss their case, 83 had an autism diagnosis.

83 out of 151.

Over half.

Perhaps you are the one in need of an education.
