I'm sure there are many reasons that people do not want the vaccines.
Do you know these reasons? I do not believe you know the whole story.Any one who has done all the research,I would say,choses not too.
Because of the benefits far outweighing the consequences and the harmful side effects of the shots being rare they should be mandated by the united states government or your brats shouldnt be allowed to live around here,shop around here or attend any institutions around here.

What are those consequences?Cancer and aids and autoimmune diseases,do these seem minor consequences?
What's with Merck's fraud concerning the Mumps vaccine?
Did the FDA hide the real Autism results?

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.
yes

Whooping cough is making a comeback BECAUSE of the vaccine.

http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2164/11/627...

And the CDC has known this for years.

Humans have survived for centuries on this planet BECAUSE of bacteria & viruses, not in SPITE of them.

Because the shots harm fewer people than the diseases the side effects may cause or be, i believe that the injections should be mandated by the federal government. If you dont take the injections you may only work at or attend a private community to live out your life in and only enjoy special visitation time in "the real world" with a federal clique that will insure that you stay away from those of us with scruples.

The people of Finland might disagree with you.

"When investigators explored the clinical picture of the 54 children with narcolepsy in 2010, they found that 50 had received the pandemic vaccine before symptom onset, which started abruptly."

50 out of 54 cases tied directly to the vaccine, that's not so rare, now is it?

Seems like the vaccinations to prevent the spread of diseases to more good than harm to people.

i'm not going to follow your narc link. It's quite obvious to the vast majority of thinkers that Tb,polio etc are about as bad as anything and those things should be prevented and most avenues should be closed to those not on the wagon so to speak.

Why wouldn't you trust drug makers? they would never commit fraud...

Or be convicted of criminal offenses...

Or have ghost writers twist data for them...

They would NEVER use children in the foster system to experiment on, forcing them to take drugs against their will....

They have the public interest at heart, really... they do.

I am not real sure where most of you are from, but in West Tennessee, the Carroll County Board of Education has made it a requirement for ALL students attending schools within the district to have so many types if vaccines; chicken pox, polio, etc. It has been this way for as long as I have gone to school there.
Waiver forms for personal or religious exemptions are freely available. Forced medical treatment is an assault and a violation of the 1st & 14th amendment to the Constitution.

TENNESSEE CODE ANNOTATED
Title 49 Education
Chapter 6 Elementary and Secondary Education
Part 50 Immunization of School Children
49-6-5001. General provisions.

(b)(1) It is the responsibility of the parents or guardian of children to have their children immunized, as required by subsection (a).

(2) In the absence of an epidemic or immediate threat of an epidemic, this section shall not apply to any child whose parent or guardian files with school authorities a signed, written statement that the immunization and other preventive measures conflict with the parent's or guardian's religious tenets and practices, affirmed under the penalties of perjury.

(c)(1) No children shall be permitted to attend any public school, nursery school, kindergarten, preschool or child care facility until proof of immunization is given the admissions officer of the school, nursery school, kindergarten, preschool or child care facility except as provided in subsection (b).

(2) No child shall be denied admission to any school or school facility if the child has not been immunized due to medical reasons if the child has a written statement from the child's doctor excusing the child from the immunization.

As you can plainly see, both religious & medical exemptions are recognized by the state of Tennessee.

If someone in Carroll County told you otherwise, they are PRESCRIBING medical treatment without a license to do so & face criminal charges for impersonating a medical practitioner.

Get them to write it down, then take it to a lawyer, you'll be a millionaire & the poor soul who thought they could circumvent the law will be in prison.
