Mrs M and I just got our Prevnar 23 pneumoccocal vaccine today. Now recommended for everyone over 65.
No, thank you. CDC can recommend until pigs fly.

I just cant accept anyone's anti vac mentality.
You have to accept it, and the fact we aren't all young parents of little children.

I hear this is (sadly) moving its way through the California legislature. It looks like it will be law soon. More freedom lost.

Yes, I also consider these laws to be loss of freedom.

I think the state will do just fine without another anti-vaxxer.

Immunization is your own personal responsibility, and if you want your children immunized then do it, since you don't have to worry about them getting sick whether or not another person's child isn't immunized.

Not everybody wants or needs a flu shot. Some people have great immune systems. Nurses will get sick even if they have shots because they're around sick people on an almost daily basis. You can' destroy all instances of disease in society, it's just not possible. Sickness and death happen, they are a part of life. There is a price we pay for giving kids born today 50 doses of immunizations by the time they are 18, and we are going to see that price further down the road. http://http://www.nvic.org/CMSTempla...es-PosterB.pdf
It is indeed absurd to think we can prevent all sickness. It is also absurd not to prevent diseases that carry a high risk of morbidity and mortality when we can do so with vaccines that do that, at very little overall risk.

Your "50 doses" link does not work. I assume it refers to the NVIC poster discussed here:

https://nvichonestly.wordpress.com/2...-doses-poster/

The poster is typical of the falsehoods and misrepresentations from NVIC.

Vaccines prevent the spread of disease to other people. That's why insurance covers it and society wants it.

The fact that vaccines protect you as an individual is merely a nice side effect. But nobody cares if you get these diseases as an individual. Unfortunately, if you get these diseases as an individual, you can spread them to society, which is what we don't actually want.

You don't spead diseases to "society", you might spread them to another person if the disease is communicable and the conditions are right. So if other individuals are scared of a disease and think the vaccine will help then they can go ahead and get it.
