"The recent cases have been discovered mostly in Richmond on college campuses". I bet most of these cases were people that were vaccinated, because it is a requirement for entering college.

The mumps is the number one carrier of juvenile menangitis--which is very deadly.

Infortunately, most doctors don't know this.

We've found out that the pertussis vaccine we all received as children doesn't provide lifetime immunity. I wonder if the same thing is true for the mumps vaccine?

And on that note - vaccinate your dang kids, everyone!

I'd just like to clarify most of these cases (read "all but one case") occurred at the University of Richmond.

You don't know much about vaccines, so you push for everyone to do it? HOW STUPID! TDaP/DTaP, at best, provides 'immunity' for about 3 years. The strain that is going around is ptxp3, NOT ptxp1 that is in the outdated shot.

IF you ever took the time to read a product insert that comes with every single vaccine vial, you'd know what the efficacy rate is, how long immunity is, ingredients in it, and so much more.

Did you know some people are NOT recommended to get certain shots? Read one sometime--maybe get educated.

The adult vaccination rate (excluding flu shot) for MMR/DTaP at best, is abou 30% for any given area. You will see outbreak after outbreak after outbreak will be in the vaccinated because the shots are outdated and people are more susceptible to the outbreaks because of their bodies are prepared for seeing a different strain. Giving shots during an outbreak is foolish as you become immune-compremised while the shot and it's adjuncts 'do it's thing'.

Don't take my word for it! Do your own research! Open-minded 'follow the evidence wherever it goes' research. Research the diseases and the risks of the shots. Review the VAERS database.

And if you want to just really see the effects of not getting the shot, look at the adult population! Why isn't every 'vaccine preventable disease' rampant in adults? Do you ever question or just roll up your sleeve because a doctor tells you to?

Oh....and vaccination does NOT equal immunization.

Vaccinations have helped eradicate smallpox, measles polio and tetanus. If you are against them travel to a third world country without the proper vaccinations and let me know how that works out for you.

NO! Nutrition and Sanitation were the main reasons these diseases went away from the way side. And Tetanus? Infected Horse Fecal matter? Yeah, we all run into that all the time.

PLEASE stop quoting what you've been told and actually think. While you are Miss-informed, I'm Mrs. Informed!

What about Scarlet Fever? It went away, yet there was no vaccine.

Please, I beg of you - do your OWN research! If a doctor wanted to surgically remove most of your liver or a lung, you'd get a second opinion. Why does it differ with vaccines? Do you even know a.) what's in them b.) if they work, c.) how many have died or injured from them d.) etc? Do you know anything about the actual diseases?

There are so many unvax adults walking around - we only pump our children up. By age 2, they recieve about 315 different pathogens (or equivalent to fighting off 315 diseases by age 2--insane!).

Please, for once, come up with something orginial from your own mind through research. Stop quoting doctors who don't even read the product inserts.

RIP Sheep and Uninformed.

Go to India or Africa without vaccinations and tell me how that works out for you.

did you know that if you have the mumps once,you cant get it again. Unlike the one that can give you scabies as an adult.... and no the name of the disease skips my thought at this time.

We travel all over the world (Africa is next) just fine.

I'm going to challenge you to:
1.) research each disease
2.) look at graphs of disease rates before and after vaccinations were widely introduced
3.) read product inserts
4.) read about outbreaks from vaccination
5.) read about the impact of nutrition and sanitation (i.e. Measles is almost a non-issue for those who have a diet rich in Vit A)

Take the stance of they dont work until you can biologically justifiy they do.

And in those countries you won't find autism in unvaccinated children. Vaccines merely exchange one set of problems for another. 1 in 50 american children develop autism today. 20 years ago it was 1 in 10,000.

Thats right. These saviors who go to Africa to save them from disease are mainly Pharma backed and Phama supplied. Autism is now out of contol in Africa. Third world countries are testing grounds for Pharma. They take advantage of poor ignorant and persecuted peoples who have no voice and no way to start a class action lawsuit. Next to Big Pharma is Big Tobacco doing the same thing.

Do a sarch yourself. Gardasil maims and kills. There a Topix gardasil forum, go there too. Gardasil made by MERCK who made the disaster known as VIOXX that killed an estimated 50,000 to 250,000 and seriously injured 169,000. Those numbers come from court documents. Not one MERCK employee OR owner served a day of prison. They were allowed by law enforcement/government to pay a portion of vioxx profits as fines and payments to victims in a out of court settlement. Wanna try Gardasil? Want your sons and daughters to experiment with a product made by those responsible for crimes against humanity? Good luck with that.

Yes, go to India and see them drinking from the same river they deficate in, urinate in, wash their animals in, put their dead in (cremated or not), and wonder why disease is rampant.

When the Sudanese moved to Sweden, their kids started to get a condition that they didn't even have a word for in their language: Autism. These folks had not culturally seen autism until bringing their kids to a top vaccinating country.

Less Vitamin D makes a difference, but come on people:

Stop being sheeple and actually question. Spend less time researching which cell phone has better features and look at what you're putting into your bodies.
