Why can't we do this more often with people who deny science and facts? It could radically change the current U.S. political landscape.

Well...I mean, stupidity IS contagious...and often fatal...and can be carried by blood. So maybe they can develop a vaccine.. With our luck this actually WILL cause autism though.

Or worse.

Conservatism!!!

Your a idiot. You should have also gotten a broken ankle shot while you were at the doctor.

Good for these doctors.

Not so CSB: one of the families I met during my travels was a family from California who had a little girl they were traveling around the world with, and it turned out they'd never vaccinated their daughter. And they were going to crazy places like India and Malaysia along the way too where even adults are advised to go get extra jabs.

I mean said little girl was quite cute, but with such parental stupidity I won't be too surprised if Darwin shows he approves of the situation.

I wish the government would quarantine all of the anti vaccination people to one city and let them take care of each other.

Still no vaccine for creationism.

And then they spend the rest of the article giving more ammunition to the anti-vaccine crazies.

What is it with journalism today that they feel they have to give equal time to both sides even when one side is made up of murderous idiots?

I got the flu shot in November (or so) and still wound up with the flu. This isn't the fault of the vaccine not doing its job, it's what I'm presuming to be the vaccine's inability to defend against several days of close contact with co-workers who come to work coughing and wheezing instead of staying home like they're supposed to.

Wait till your 6 month-old spends two days in intensive care with a 106 degree fever because doctors like to give three vaccinations in a single shot. Maybe, just maybe everything the medical establishment tells you isn't on the up and up. Even doctors disagree. When I asked the doctor at Dell Children's in Austin if a vaccine can cause a reaction like that - even though our personal pediatrician said it could not - he said "sure, we see it all the time."

The flu shot is quite often ineffective. There are many different strains of flu virus, and the vaccine can only protect against a small portion of those. Each year a prediction is made about which strains will be the most prevalent that year, and the vaccine is made up in response.

The vaccine doesn't mean you won't catch the flu. It means you will be immunized against the predicted big ones that year. So you probably caught a different strain.
 
2012-03-13 10:02:31 AM  
It's not going to matter. Some parents just can't accept the fact that someone knows more about how to take care of their kid than they do. It'll start to matter when all pediatricians lay the smack down on such stupidity.

It's a little bit more complicated than just the parents' right to decide whether or not to vaccinate their children.

Herd Immunity: the more people choose not to vaccinate, the more it endangers the greater population.

Well, they could only spread disease to people who are not vaccinated, correct?

Sucks giving my little boy the shots, but I am a reasonable person. You really do have to be a farking moron to not do it. He got 3 of em at 6 months, was not a happy camper. Stick a boob in his mouth, he is fine.

Already gave him the liberalism shot, he has a job at 7 months old.

People that don't get their kids vaccinated should have the kids removed and then they should be jailed for child endangerment.

"Some kids do have a weaker immune system," she said. "In Morgan's case, her immune system was compromised. I don't know why. She wasn't able to handle the load. As a parent, I believe there are several factors in autism -- different cases. But in our case, I still strongly believe that was a factor in her autism."

"As a parent, I feel that 2" steel plate is a sufficient wall thickness for this pressure vessel."
"As a parent, I feel that three pounds per delay is a safe enough charge to ensure that we will not damage the adjacent parking garage."
"As a parent, I feel that 3000 psi concrete is strong enough for the pedestals for this new bridge."

Guess what, lady; all of those statements are just as stupid as the next.

It might also be because there are many strains of flu and the shot is only a rough guess at which ones they expect to emerge in any given year. Or it might have not been the flu. Or it could have been the thing you said, no vaccine is 100%.

/Jerk!

That and influenza being about the worst disease possible to target with a vaccine.

The result will be an increase in "alternative medical services" for the immuni-derp brigade to support their irrational views. It's like homeschooling but with doctors.

Cult behavior is as cult behavior does.

Flu shots are dumb though. Even if you get the right strain protection, your body's immune system will not be as robust as those who don't get shots. Studies showed this in old people. Unless you have a real reason to think it could kill you, man up.

Her off the wall antics and that of her baby daddy probably have nothing to do with a touch of autism. And even if they are both a little out there, im sure that would have nothing to do with what is passed on to their child. Its all nurture, not nature.
