  • Simple answer is NO. Vaccines all have different effectiveness rates and those that are live viruses can actually give the child that particular disease. It helps give them a false immunity and they can easily still get the disease especially if they haven't had all of their boosters.

    Yeah there was polio before the vaccine DUH that is why there is a vaccine now, but the only cases of polio NOW are those that come from the ORAL polio vaccine and that is proven.

    After watching my son almost die at 9 months old from his DTaP and finding out our children can carry a genetic predisposition that causes his reaction we have decided NOT to take the chance and do not vaccinate anymore, but I think that everyone needs to do their own research and make their own decision.

  • As far as I know, no. Vaccines are not full proof. It just offer some immunity.

  • No. The only known cause of polio is the polio vaccine. And there have reportedly been cases of rubella even after the MMR was administered. A vaccine only delivers some immunity, it's not circumspect.

  • There was polio before the polio vaccine. That is why they invented the vaccination. My mom saw people in the 1940's and 1950's who were crippled by polio before the vaccine was around. There is a very slim and i mean slim chance you can get polio from the vaccine. . Vaccines are not 100% fool proof, but do offer a good deal of immunity.

  • wow, never knew there was an oral polio vaccine. Anyway, no vaccines are not 100% effective, but they can prevent some illness. I think annon 8:29 makes a good point that everyone needs to do their own research and make a decision then.

  • What the person should have said is that there have been no cases of live polio in the US since 1979. The only cases of polio since then have been from the vaccine.
