S/O from vaccinated hypothetical question

What if a freshly vaccinated child gets the measles shot and then while the measles vaccine is shedding comes around a immune compromised child. Should the parents get charged with murder? We know non vaccinated children are harmless since they don't have any vaccines. Therefore they don't have anything that can shed or be passed. Your thoughts ladies?

non vaccinated children are not harmless as they can come in contact with infants who are not yet able to be immunized. As for murder charges no, as a child's parents would have been the one who chose to not immunize their child from the measles.

No, the parents who don't vaccinate know the risks of it.

Where would they come into contact with virus'? From thin air? No they come into contact with virus's from vaccinated children. You see when the vaccine sheds the child becomes contagious with that disease.

While I don't think the parent should be faulted, I also don't believe it's a non vaxing parents faulted if a child gets a disease either. I believe every parent should do their own research on vaccinations. They need to research both sides of the issue and then do what they believe is right for their child.

I don't vaccinate and I am scared of kids whom are just vaccinated. They are the ones whom are carrying the disease. The children whom aren't vaccinated have nothing in them.

So there was no such thing as measles before vaccines? That doesn't even make sense.

If that were the case than the disease wouldn't exist at all as once upon a time no was immunized. So yes in fact it does come from thin air, or animal feces, bites, locations.

You can't force other people to not vaccinate though, the only thing you can do is risk it or keep your kids away from...well everyone.

If your kid is immunocompromised, why are you going to have that kid in a place where it could contract something from someone else? Keep the kid home.

Measles, mumps rubella come from air? Hepatitis B comes from air? Pertusis comes from the air? What disease comes from animal feces? The only disease you can get from a animal is rabies. Rabies is not in the childhood vaccine schedule.
