Well, that's ridiculous! You can't get in a car for the first time and immediately take it out on the highway, without any training.
You can't go to War without ever having ever fired a gun before, or being trained to know how to.
I'm not going you prolong this, although I could. So , I'll just say again...THAT is a ridiculous, and completely thoughtless, statement to make!
It was intended to be ridiculous, as was my post that immediately preceded that one.

Problem is, many on this forum don't get that.

Thank you for proving this.

Should the state should mandate immunizations for your children? Do you feel they are safe for all children. Do they cause other health issues like autism? Should the state also pay for them as well if they are requiring them?

You need not be a snarky ass. I asked about flu. vaccine in particular. No mention of this is made in the abstract referenced. "Biological products" includes more than simply the flu vaccine

VACCINATE YOUR DAMN KIDS OR KEEP THEM AT HOME AWAY FROM THOSE OF US WHO DO THE RIGHT THING AND PROTECT OUR CHILDREN. Funny thing, if there were no vaccines these same people who do not vaccinate their kids would be clamoring and protesting the government to come up with a cure for what is affecting their kids. And no, vaccination does not cause autism.
One more.... And global warming is not real either.
