This will probably become more of a thing as these kids grow up and realize they're wide open for diseases.

Smart kids.  Smarter than their parents.
 
2019-02-03 04:48:28 PM  
It has been said before, many times, many ways, but again, let me say "The kids are alright."

Unbelievable.  Absolutely unbelievable.

Reddit actually useful.  Will wonders never cease?

What you want man? I got flu. I got measels. I got hepatitis A and B. I got polio. I even got a hook up for smallpox.

Well, at least some of the kids are turning out smarter than their parents.  Though I think the 18 yr-old should be told that she doesn't have to give her mother medical information any longer.

\and maybe ask the parents this: which is worse autism or death by a preventable disease
\\How they respond will tell you a hell of a lot about a person

These kids are going to be smart adults...  Unlike their counterparts that will be stupid dead kids.  Most of the "childhood diseases" are actually very deadly to adults.
 
2019-02-03 05:43:29 PM  
If kids want vaccines, you better believe they're gonna get their hands on them one way or another. I'd rather they tell me and get vaccinated where I can at least keep an eye on them and make sure they're safe.

In CA kids 12 and over can get vaccinations (AB499) without parental consent if they wish too. At least for STD.

Well if you 18 or older you certainly don't need to sneak around on Reddit, you could just walk into a Walgreens and get most of your shots there.

Altruism was cured, almost wiped out during the Reagan administration.  Why is the anti-vax movement even here?

Historically, kids who got vaccinated probably were 85% more likely to live as well?

What is the best part about knocking up an anti vaxxer?

You only have to pay child support payments for 5 years.

And as long as they've been vaccinated, I don't mind their dancing with my girl.

The UK university I taught at for a while used to organise mass vaccination sessions for students who had missed out or wanted a booster. Typically a thousand students would turn up over a couple of days. I believe that a lot of other universities do something similar.

How does it work with health insurance until 26? I never mind my parents, but they weren't delusional asshole antivaxxers. Is it treated like being insured by an employer, where it is none of thier business?

Yeah, not trusting an organization with a logo like that. Well, or stupid rhetoric.

The problem they probably run into is that they need their parents' health insurance info.
 
2019-02-03 06:02:34 PM  
We need a federal law to allow minors of a certain age and above to seek vaccinations without parental approval.
 
2019-02-03 06:03:05 PM  
If you can get a driver's license at 16, get drunk, smash your parents's car and kill yourself, you should be able to get vaccinated without your parents permission.

Health Insurance until 26 doesn't mean the parent has a right to see their child's medical records.  Hell if your teen or tween talks to the doctor in confidence the doctor isn't allowed to tell you what the conversation was about.

You think you've got all the typos fixed, then wham, not enough caffeine.

That should be...."smash your parents' car .... parents' permission."  FTFM

What? Vaccinating the teens or allowing the parents to play stupid games with their children's health? Cause I'm pretty sure the latter is greatly frowned upon in the medical community.

If you are one of these kids, go to your school counselor, the county health department, or your primary care physician.  The doctor and school will have your insurance information.  County health will know where to get free or cheap vacations

I'm gonna laugh when you morons trigger a yellow fever epidemic from pointing fingers at concerned parents while not staying up to date on your yellow fever schedule yourself.  Hypocrites. For thine but not mine.  Bless your hearts.

If they offered it, I would not be against it.

So why are you against vaccines, besides the fact that you are weapons-grade stupid?
