What is it about vaccine reactions?

I'm having a hard time figuring out something.

Point A: Obviously vaccines have some risks, or we wouldn't be hearing about parasites, i.e. non-vaxers, taking advantage of the virtuous, who undergo the RISK of having their children vaccinated to maintain herd immunity against disease. Right?

Point B: People who claim to have vaccine damaged children obviously vaccinated them, took the risk, and are enduring the consequences. So these people should be treated as heroes for herd immunity. Right?

Point C: However, in real life, vaccine damage is very likely to be dismissed. By doctors. By the program which is supposed to compensate the vaccine injured. In news stories. In medical journals. By CDC spokespeople. And in the online community it seems to be mostly either ignored or denied. Why?

Where I'm heading with this: the problem of the denial of vaccine damage has a lot to do with fueling the vaccine critics. Even parents whose children are vaccine damaged don't necessarily jump immediately and totally into the anti-vaccine camp. They are pushed there, gradually, but the discovery that they are considered to be the bad guys, even though they vaccinated and even though their children took the risk and even though they did their bit for herd immunity and a lot more. And other parents read these stories and see what happened and see who gets blamed and who doesn't.

So why the attempts to pretend that there is RISK but that this risk never results in any actual injuries?

In another thread you stated you were 58 and you and your siblings got through the non vaccine stage fine. But what about the people that did'nt? Did you walk up to them and tell them, Well me and my brothers were fine so there no problem?

Are you telling me that if you live in total squalor, unsanitary conditions without enough food and with no medical attention BUT you have a vaccine then you will be safe from illness????? Wow! Vaccines ARE magic!

Yeah just like letting you're children " ride it out" because you think that everyone is out to poison you and you're kids.


You seem to be making some very general assumptions, and extraordinarily sweeping statements.

Yes, you're right.
There a lot of antivaxers who would prefer their child develop a NATURAL IMMUNITY to a disease by contracting the disease naturally instead of having it unnaturally injected into them.
