Our daughter has decided NOT to vaccinate our grandchildren. I think it is a form of child abuse.

While I wouldn’t call it child abuse, I do feel it is wrong...to the rest of us..
We are losing the herd immunity with so many kids not be vaccinated..

Many states will not allow unvaccinated kids in public schools, so be prepared to home school..

I do believe in staggering vaccination a bit more..

Remember the days in early sixties taking care of kids in iron lungs

Definitely child abuse.

Would them being sterile be so bad? I mean, let's not have more anti vax idiots around.

Are your kids vaccinated ? I bet the answer will be .. Of course they are.

I bet the answer would be NO!

Do you think that the teachers working with your children every day, and the parents who enter the school to drop off and pick up their children should have to provide proof of up to date vaccination????if not why not?
Adults can be just as contagious as children.
It seems ridiculous to mandate vaccines for children if not for adults as well.

I don't know where you live...But in any first world country...Doctors and all health care workers are required by law to be vaccinated AND prove it, annually.

We see kids developing diseases (autism is an example) immediately after vaccination. Vaccines have never been tested for safety, NEVER. The government wants to protect the general public from epidemic diseases, and that is why they justify risking the small percentage of injuries for the benefit of the public. Just read on the subject and make up you mind. Do not blame those who chose to protect their kids from possible diseases of vaccines. Again, go to the YouTube, watch real stories, scientific presentations, and you will eventually find the truth about vaccination.
Firstly, I think this is poor use of the word 'immediately'... because 'immediately' is kinda like getting hit by a freight train and then you're dead. I suspect autism is something that doesn't just pop up 'immediately'.

Also doubt very seriously that government doesn't test vaccines. It's almost ludicrous to assert that. You may not think their test base is big enough or long enough, but 'NEVER' just isn't appropriate.

That said, I got shots as a child, as did my children. I really don't care whether you or Mary down the block decide to NOT vaccinate, but don't come around whining when they catch something preventable because of that decision.

According to a survey done less than 5 years ago on adult national immunization coverage in Canada...less than 10% of adults were up to date on their immunizations.
Less than 10% had received a pertussis vaccine in adulthood.

what's the diff if an adult walks through the school and infects children... than if a child walks through the school and infects children.

All mandates should rightfully include adults as well.
