just watched TWWGS on ABC and they were covering the increase of occurrences of childhood diseases that had nearly been eradicated.  The coverage focused on parents in affluent areas who were choosing NOT to vaccinate their children.

Now, many people have the misconception that the increase is the fault of low income people, THAT is not true.  Local health centers do offer free, or low cost immunizations.

So, I know (unfortunately) that we can not force a parent to vaccinate their children, BUT do you feel that these parents (of a patient zero child) should be responsible for the fall out of their child NOT being vaccinated? I'm not speaking (just) of the other children who may become sick (although their should not be too many of them if they are vaccinated) I'm speaking also of the money that becomes involved with disinfecting the school after the contamination, the loss of wages for the staff, the pregnant teacher who becomes sick from the exposure and has to leave her employment early....

In my view, it is much like a parent giving a child a car.  If the child has an accident, they parent is financially responsible for the damages.  Of course, the parent can make the child pay them back... But still, the parents made that choice, they have to take the responsibility.

Only when the people who make poor food choices have to cover the full cost of diabetes treatment, cancer treatment, heart treatment and/or any other issues that arise from their poor food choices.

Oh and people who get hurt playing sports, let's let them cover in full any injuries.

I'm sure I can think of more given the time.

The *break outs* are happening in the most densely vaccinated populations. Research is your friend. But I see you've chosen the 'eat propaganda out of MSM hands' route.

Why should a parent vaccinate using a vaccine that has known to cause harm and injury, in order to protect others from a vaccine that didn't work?

Well, lets go after those who spread strep, flu, chicken pox, the common cold, bronchitis, sinus infection, or any other malady...

I'm pro vax. But, the horse is dead and you're not going to convince anyone of anything.
