 I'm not really pro or anti vax but I vax my kids and I see no real reason most people shouldn't. Most kids really don't have any reactions to them. That one lady sounded like a cook though didn't she. Whoo.

I actually don't see what the ladies problem was. I don't send my kids to school if they are ill and I don't want them in school if something is going around.

What I find interesting is that often the kids allowed in school because they're vaccinated are the ones the get the illness. From the article:

Among the 25 people who contracted measles in New York City between February and April this year, two were school-age children unvaccinated because of parental refusal.

It doesn't really say but it leads one to believe that the other 23 people who contracted the illness were all vaccinated for it. I know when my oldest was in high school, the only kids that got it were those that were allowed to attend school during the outbreak because they were vaccinated.

They shouldn't be allowed in school if they are sick. All kids should be vaccinated.

OP since you're a strong advocate for vaccines, I was wondering what your opinion and thoughts are on all these illegal children being shipped out to states all over the country, unvaccinated?



“We are starting to see chicken pox, MRSA staph infections, we are starting to see different viruses,” Cabrera said. (snip)

“It's contagious, we are transporting people to different parts of the state and different parts of the country,” Cabrera said.

“Tuberculosis (TB) is the single most dangerous disease because it is highly contagious and can be easily picked up at the mall, at a school, or on the bus,” Dr. Jane Orient, an internal medicine specialist and the executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), told Breitbart News. “Cases coming from south of the U.S. border can be very resistant to medications. They don’t respond to traditional antibiotics, and the few drugs they may respond to are often toxic, with lots of side effects.”

Some of the other diseases concerning public health officials include measles, hepatitis, Chagas disease, and Norovirus, which causes vomiting and diarrhea.

I have a friend who has a baby who is in remission from Neroblasphoma and finally was able to send her son to school. But because of non vax'ers her little boy is at risk of dying.  So the school had a chicken pox outbreak and he had to be tested and removed from school  So to this boy you could save a him by vaxing.  I

If a person chooses not to vax their kids then they know they will be quarantined in these situations. Or in this case not allowed to go to school. They are trying to protect them. Parents who don't vax know the risks they take and that their child will be treated differently in outbreak situations!

Or that they were younger than the age for vaccination. Or that they were unvaccinated for reasons other than parental refusal, like allergy.

You know, two groups who don't get a say in whether they get infected by the children of scientifically illiterate parents or not.

You vaccinate for measles at age 1. It says the 2 kids were school age. What are you getting at anyway? 25 kids got measles. 23 of them were vaccinated against measles. You don't think that's.....odd? Something worth wondering about?

It says that out of 25 people. 2 were school age AND unvaccinated BECAUSE of parental refusal. That means the other 23 could be unvaccinated for other reasons, or not of school age. Doesn't mean they all were vaccinated.
