The risk for the vaccine isn't that high and most side effects are rare. Honestly if you actually research and educate yourself on the vaccine it isn't that high. How many people can say they were affected by it? How many people were effected by the disease? I think parents mainly mothers scare themselves into thinking its not needed or its so horrible they let others influence there own parenting belifes. I guess don't google your information actually speak with doctors and healthcare providers that know about the stuff. Goodness just recently a so called doctor said some vaccine are linked to autism well guess what people he was discredited cause for his false statements. Some people still believe him even though he came out and said that what he stated wasn't true. How gullable are you?Answer Question

I couldn't agree more. There is SO much misinformation out there about vaccines, and we are a culture that lives in fear of EVERYTHING around us. We have the luxury of having not seen the devastation these diseases have caused, and we, as a generation, take that for granted. We are seeing an increase in pertussis (whooping cough) rates due to a lack of vaccination. I think if some of these moms understood that their kids cannot develop "natural" immunity without getting the disease, and had some understanding of how the immune system works, they might change their minds. Yes, all vaccines carry some risk. But most of these risks are MUCH lower than the risks associated with getting the disease, and even the risk of being exposed to the disease.

Are you asking a question or looking for a platform to espouse your point of view? There are other places to do that...like your personal journal.
