Hypothetical "What would you do?"

This question is for those parents that have chosen not to vaccinate based on information they have read on the interwebz.

What would you do if your child caught and died or was permanently disabled from a disease that they were supposed to be vaccinated against early in life?

Who would you blame? Would you try to sue someone?

I'm not trying to flame anyone for their choices, but I've always wondered this "what if". Just as I'm free to choose to vax my child, everyone else is free to not to.

Lawl. Group B Strep. She'll probably have it anyway. It's quite common. In fact, you might have it right now and not know.

I'm asking you: What would you do if your child died from a disease you chose not to vaccinate them against?

It's a fairly simple question.

I did answer the question. You just may not have liked the response.


Assuming my child died from a VPD that was proven, and assuming vacc's were 100% effective, and if my child died and was not vaccinated, I wouldn't do anything or blame anyone.

And I have no idea what this means. Can you expand, please?

Thanks for your opinion. Even though you weren't the target audience I was asking. Although I could alternatively ask if parents would sue the vax companies if their child was injured in some way by the vaccine. Well, more try to sue.

I realized my mistake and edited that out when I realized.

Honestly, I agree with your "what if" opinion. I asked because I do know some people that I had asked before and they would have tried to sue the doctors for not letting them know it was that important, etc.

My daughter will probably have Group B Strep anyway, and you might have it. I can't really expand on it more.

You can not really sue the vaccine makers, they are shielded from liability by law.

Okay, I was just unclear at how it came into conversation about my daughter having it because I didn't mention anything about any health issues relating to her. That's why I was confused.

Well, that's kind of silly given that's what's mainly stressed at appointments. So, I'm not sure why that reaction would be taken.
