After reading a bunch of nonsense (that would go nowhere in a court of law) from some provaccine sources, I feel it's time to reimburse.

not really sure what you're on about but some arguments against vaccination are that we aren't a 3rd world country thus we shouldn't need them. however, what if someone from a 3rd world country comes here. then those of us who are vaccinated have a greater chance of resisting the diseases than those who have not been. there are just so many sides to this argument. it all boils down to it's your child. do what you feel is best for them. but once you make your decision, don't regret it. whether your child is immunized and develops autism or was not immunized and gets sick from something they could have been vaccinated against. and i don't think anyone should tell anyone else what they should do with their children.

Well, if we're going to label vacc'd vs. unvacc'd, I'd also like to suggest this:

The promotion of discrimination, under any circumstance, under the guise of "public health" is reprehensible.

Oh, trust me... if some frightened moron tried this in my state (we'll call it cracking the door), bet your farm that I'll be there to kick that door wide open.


The paranoia of some people are beyond ridiculous at points.

That is a reasonable POV.

"I'd also like to know who to stay away from in terms of who has hepatitis. (we can label them "Hep A", "Hep B", "Hep C", etc..)"

I had hep A and it doesn't stay in your system. so yay! no label for me ^^ =P

A lot of diseases clear on their own. :-) It was just an example of where things could go - no offense.

oh i know lol. no offense taken. that was just for a little FYI because the other forms of hep are not quite as forgiving. of course i had mine when i was 6 so it was pretty tough back then, but you get the picture =P

I know... we have an acquaintance, and I can't remember if it's Hep B or C, but they caught one of those and Aids from a blood transfusion. It doesn't keep us or our kids from being around them, though. ;-)
