I've been reading some rather disturbing comments on a listserv lately, and I am curious... How many of you in favor of cumpulsory vaccination feel that if your child was exposed to a vaccine available disease, and contracted it, and it was determined that your child was in contact with an unvaccinated person (adult or child), you would assume it was their fault (due to vax status) and sue them?

Yeah if someone stranger came up to me and told me that my unvaxed kid gave their kid a disease, I'd laugh myself silly and go on about my merry way.

Interesting claim. But the evidence really isn't there.

Characterization of Bactericidal Immune Responses following Vaccination with Acellular Pertussis Vaccines in Adults

Immunization did not result in improved bactericidal activity for any of the individuals, and in two cases immunization caused a statistically significant decrease in complement-mediated lysis. Similarly, opsonization with the postimmunization sera failed to enhance attachment or phagocytosis of bacteria by neutrophils, and one postimmunization sample with a strong response to filamentous hemagglutinin caused an inhibition of phagocytosis that was statistically significant compared to that observed for the no-serum control. In summary, booster immunization of adults with acellular pertussis vaccines was not found to increase bactericidal activity over preimmunization levels. Identifying ways to promote bactericidal immune responses might improve the efficacy of acellular pertussis vaccines.

Another example of untrustworthy advertising, I guess.

Wondering if another line of debate will start here...

If you are provax, why not ask the daycare provider if they allow unvaxed and if the answer is yes then why put your child there? Daycares are way more choice than public schools. (In regards to your choice of which one to use)

In PA, for all licensed daycare centers, each child must have a health assessment form updated regularly and kept on file at the center.

So are you scared of the unvaccinated enough to pull your daughter out today and put her in another daycare?

As I said....


*although since she's had her full first course of shots, I'm not worried about her specifically.*


I would ask out of curiosity, maybe for anyone asking me for references on the place for an infant.

Ok, so you answered what I was getting at. You truly believe that your child is protected by the vaccines. Right?

I guess I misread another post where it seemed like you were concerned by the fact that there are unvaccinated kids in her daycare or possibly would be.

Would you feel guilty if your child passed a disease on after being vaccinated with a live virus? Would it make you rethink your decisions? Would you feel guilty if your child had a seizure immediately after a vaccination that left them with brain damage? I think it's in poor taste to want a parent to feel guilty for decisions they think are in the best interest of their child.
