Am I reading this right?

http://www.healthyarkansas.com/rules_regs/Immunization_Requirements_2004.pdf

Am I understanding that this says if I go to the health department and get him exempt due to "philosophical" reasons he can still go to daycare?

  • I don't believe she asked your opinion of having him vaccinated she just wanted help interpreting. Vaccines don't prevent disease they lessen the effects it has on the person in question, actually having the disease without vaccinations give stronger immunities. Vaccines are the reason behind mutation not the other way around maybe you should read some real scientific information that is not paid for by vaccination companies.

  • yep.

    but why in the world would you send an unprotected child into a daycare setting where diseases and germs are spread daily! The reason we do not have the diseases anymore is because of the vaccines. These diseases are coming back to society because parents are not protecting their children.

  • 1st anon again. Just want add that while I hear all this talk of mothers saying they aren't immunizing due to autism, that's a bunch of BS that hasn't been proven. I have an autistic son. He was diagnosed before he ever got the MMR vaccine which is the main concern. Personally, I'd rather have an autistic child anyway than a DEAD one because I chose not to protect my child with a vaccine.

  • He's been vaccinated some.

    And your statement doesn't make any sense. If those diseases are gone there's no reason to vaccinate for them. Not vaccinating has nothing to do with them coming back or not.

  • Sara yes you just need to send the form in yearly so that he doesn't get kicked out of any school setting because of it, and the other two on her are just being stupid. There is no reason not to send him to daycare or school, as long as he is sanitary and so is the facility it is perfectly fine.

  • im sure she means when other people come in from other countries who have these diseases such as poilo or measels..then its brought into our country again and the non vaccinated people have it..thus beginning its spread.people come visit our country all the time and they may have a disease that could be protected agianst by a vaccine.

  • Yes it does. If everyone is vaccinated, then the disease can't come back, because there will be no host. It was eradicated HERE, but not necessarily in other countries. A sick person can come here from another country now and have the ability to thrive, because there will be unprotected people for it to infect. After that, the strains can only get stronger and they will have to make whole new vaccines. Do a little research, dear, before you talk about things that you don't understand.

  • Polio is supposed to dead-in every sense of the word. Non existent anymore. This means in other countries as well.

  • people bring back these diseases from going to other countries, they don't catch them and get sick because they were vaccinated, but can still pass on the germs. They aren't actually "gone".

    June 09 there was an outbreak of Mumps in NY, NJ and Ontario
    April 09 there were outbreaks of Measles in PA and MD
    we also had almost 300 cases of Rubella in the US in 09
    we even had cases of Polio in the US last year.
