Some vaccine common sense...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
If the big pharm/ government are out to make millions and vaccines are harmful, and it's just a conspiracy, yada yada. Then why are vaccines required for government employees, military, healthcare providers, and teachers? If the man is out to get the layman folks then why does "the government" and other federal/state employees have to be vaccinated?

If you choose not to vaccinate then good for you but I'm sick of hearing this conspiracy crap. I remember in basic training going through a vaccine line "train", and getting tons of vaccines. If it's so harmful why would they do this? Maybe because the healthier we are the less duty we missed and the less money in the long run the government saved by having us healthy.

That is all.

I'm a firm believer in vaccines.  But, your military argument is laughable.  Maybe you aren't old enough to know our government KNOWINGLY sprayed our Vietnam soldiers with Agent Orange?  Not to mention all the other things they did to our soldiers in subsequent wars and conflicts?

Because we have a larger population than ever!  DUH!

If they are so safe, why do we have more autism, asthma, allergies, autoimmune disorders, etc since the 90s updated schedule? Why does the CDC not test them all together? They say each is safe, but there has NEVER been a study to test the amount given at such a young age.

Asthma--more polutants, more smokers.

Autism is NOT caused by vaccinations.  You're really going to believe a Playboy Bunny and a doctor who was driven out of town on a rail?  Again, autism is higher in areas where polution is higher.  It's also become the trendy blanket diagnosis like ADHD was a few year back.

I selectively vaccinate but not because I fear autism, or asthma, or any other complication-but rather I won't vaccinate against something that won't cause death, or can't be treated effectively.  We don't vax against roto virus, the flu, chicken pox, adn won't be giving gaurdisil when its time either.

My husband was in the Navy and also did the vaccine train-including Anthrax and he is alive and kicking!

Do research, not proproganda.

I have a friend from the military that told me WHILE WE WERE TALKING ABOUT GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACIES who said, "Let's just say there's a REASON I WON'T get flu shots... EVER."

I have another friend from the military that got paralyzed RIGHT after his Military REQUIRED vaccinations.

Just saying....

Dtap is for pertussis (aka whooping cough), right? Then WHY has my cousins son ended up hospitalized for whooping cough TWICE?

Many vaccines only have a 50% success rate, so why even bother? I'm pretty sure you have a 50% or less chance of getting those diseases WITHOUT vaccines...

Because then the non-vax crazies wouldn't have an argument.

 I think before that they didn't report like they do now.  Also, because of more research, they are able to more quickly and accurately diagnose than they did years ago.  Medical science has grown exponentially in the past 20 years and the funds are now there to improve research.  I just don't believe all the negativity that they claim is wrong with vaxing.  My aunt is a Pediatric nurse practitioner and she is all about us keeping us up to date on all the vax's that come out and she answers all the questions as does our pediatrician.  I'm not saying everyone should vax as that's a choice between you and your family and doctor and I wish there was a way to test allergic reactions to the ingredients in the vax prior to administering it.  I do vax and my child has had no harsh side effects.  My mom can't get a tetanus shot as she's allergic to the ingredients in it, but she can get the remainder of vax's.

Yea for some. Think back to when you were a kid. You know even with better diagnostics, there wouldnt have been as many with these issues. When I was in elementary school, we only had one kid in our grade level that would've been diagnosed as autistic. Back then he was just labeled as socially awkward. It wasn't 1 in 50, like today for sure.

Improved diagnostics.

It didn't go up that much. We went from 1 in 10,000 in 1988 to 1 in 50 today. Our population didn't jump that much in 20 years.
