BronyMedic: Lunaville: I know some otherwise great Moms who have not vaccinated their children. They think their children have not incurred serious illness because they have done everything right to build strong immune systems in their children such as feeding them organic foods including tons of vegetables, making sure they exercise and get plenty of sleep. I don't know what to say or how to respond in these situations.Really, there's no good way to respond. You can show them the facts and websites which point out the issues and danger of not vaccinating (AntiAntiVax is a good website for laypeople), but until their own child is sick from a vaccine preventable disease, they won't really understand if they're that deluded to think that it's not from riding the herd immunity wave.Vaccination is really a victim of it's own successes. We don't really have mass epidemics and thousands of dead kids each year anymore from VPDs. There's nothing in your face anymore. In addition, with the ease of access of bad - either malicious misinformation or innocent but blatantly wrong - information on the internet in terms of vaccination and health in general, there's a lot of opportunity for someone to be mislead.
