Vaccine Ambassadors collects donations both online and through pediatrician's offices in order to provide life-saving vaccines to children who do not have this essential healthcare measure available to them.  Our initial funds will go to children in Haiti through PAHO-supported vaccine programs.  PAHO (Pan American Health Organization) is the branch in the Americas for the World Health Organization.

Each year 1.7 million children die from diseases that can be easily prevented by routine vaccines.  Together we can help prevent these deaths and give all kids a healthy start at life.  Please help support us by bringing awareness to the issue and to our organization. You can find out more about us, "join" to get our monthly newsletter, and donate at www.vaccineambassadors.org. You can also like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/VaccineAmbassadors and follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/VaxAmbassadors. Spread the word!

How about useing that money to make better living conditions? I stand firm in my belief that we would be healthier by NOT injecting our bodies with chemicals but living healthy clean lives.

These diseases can be prevented with clean water and sewerage.
Most of the diseases are transmitted through feces.
That's why we don't have them, but underdeveloped countries do.
How about food and clean water.
Then these diseases will disappear.

I don't vaccinate.

Measles is not prevented by clean water.  All it takes is one infected person to come in contact with your unvaccinated kid.  Has nothing to do with hygiene.

And as far as coming in contact with feces?  You don't want to KNOW how many times a day you come in contact with feces and never know it.  Luckily, its likely feces of someone who has been vaccinated.

And measles is no big deal. It wasn't scary before the vaccine. They invent a vaccine and everyone is scared.
Not only that, but MMR is live. It sheds. You're contagious after getting it.
Wash your hands before you eat and oral fecal contamination won't happen. Common sense and proper hygiene.

I'm sorry but you can keep yourself healthy without injecting with poisons.

You come into contact with fecal matter way more places than a restroom.

And no, your child does not always scrub their hands clean before putting them in their mouth or nose.
