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!!

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?

How on earth would you know if the infection came from someone vaccinated or unvaccinated? A lot of cases happen in groups of vaccinated children.

Are YOUR vaccinations up to date??????? Most adults today are not current on vaccinations. When was your last measles vaccination?

And some individuals have titers that show a need for vaccination AFTER being vaccinated. The vaccine failed. Didn't "take".

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.

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.

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.

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.
