My beef with anti-vaccinating parents

Agreed

56

Lol whooping cough

29

Recently it seems the roar against vaccinations for deadly diseases has increased, with parents still subscribing to chicken pox party ideals and refusing to allow medical science to do its thing. People are dumb, so this isn't a huge surprise. But it concerns me because the "herd immunity" is dropping. I am severely allergic (we are talking 106+ F fever here) to the pertussis vaccine, and there are quite a few other people out there who cannot be given the vaccine either. We depend on the immunity of those around us in order to stay safe. But the people around us are not getting vaccinated. Of course the odds of an outbreak are still low, seeing as the majority is vaccinated, but I'm worried about the future here, if the trend gets worse, and vaccinated people are no longer the majority, all it would take would be one small cough and then we'd be back in the 1920's. At this point, getting whooping cough probably wouldn't damage me, I'm 18, healthy, strong, etc. But I would be a carrier, and I might make it spread to other persons who would be at risk. /rant So please Flood, in the horrible event any of us reproduce, vaccinate your spawn. EDIT: at no point did I mention the flu shot, lel.

    • How about we EAT healthy and learn to become immune of disease the natural way.. as nature intended? Of course though.. Avoiding exposure is good too.. for things like HIV.

      • The lovely idiots who accuse vaccines of causing issues do so with a sort of ignorant logic, yet they do believe they are correct: Many vaccines contain the element mercury. Due to the toxicity of mercury, many people instantaneously assume vaccines to be harmful, but this is not the case. Since the mercury is only a component in many far more complex molecules it is entirely harmless, rendering the arguments of anti-vaccination groups useless.

        • It's like the Flat Earth Society but they aren't just trolling. People who are Anti-Vaccine are some of the stupidest fellows on this rock. Not to mention that whole Autism-MMR thing. That moron should be hung from tower bridge. Even my bloody parents think that jab is why my brother is a bit... weird. And has absolutely nothing to do with the age they get the jab being the age where that sort of 'weirdness' starts to show. Vaccinate yourself and your children .-.

                Ever watch a child die from a vaccine preventable disease? I have. It was pertussis. It was horrible and sad.

                • If the parents of a child don't vaccinate their children without a valid medical reason, they should receive reduced government benefits (if any) and not be permitted to enrol their child in a public school. There, I said it.

                    If you aren't getting vaccinated go live in a slum with the other dirty rats, just make sure you give your kids to loving parents who don't risk them dying of serious disease.

                        I'm gonna put in my final two cents. Even if there were proven to be link(there isn't one) between vaccination and autism you're basically saying, "I'd rather put my child at risk of death from something entirely preventable than raise a weirdo."

                        • How the -blam!- is this convo still going? It should be dead because the only reasonable, rational thing to do is to get your hellspawn vaccinated and because the people chiming that vaccinations are counter productive to natural selection are goddam trolls.

                                  • Last time I got vaccinated was like 5 years ago. Aside from typical allergies or a sore throat, I simply never get sick. When everybody was running around to sterilize their hands, and still get sick, during the whole bird flu epidemic I was like lolwut and never got it. I'm a big proponent of if you're not going to die then medication isn't that important. We've become a society that when one person coughs, they have to take very OTC on the planet. This is bad considering that foreign cells that do cause disease will eventually build up immunity to these drugs and make them worthless. Just stay in bed, drink some damn chicken noodle soup, and let the white blood cells do it's thing.
