The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends getting 28 doses of 10 vaccines for kids aged 0 to six. No US federal laws mandate vaccination, but all 50 states require certain vaccinations for children entering public schools. Most states offer medical and religious exemptions; some states allow philosophical exemptions. Proponents contend adverse reactions to vaccines are extremely rare. Opponents say that children’s immune systems can deal with most infections naturally, & that injecting questionable vaccine ingredients may cause side effects, including seizures, paralysis, and death.

Thank you!! Excellent info. Barbara makes a LOT of sense and has certainly earned her title as top ranking non-medical expert on the topic of vaccines. This is must-read stuff for every parent & I sent the link out to my sons & their wives!
It would be interesting to know the country of origin of all the children who have come down with the measles, how they were treated, the duration and severity of the disease, and what docs are saying about how immune they are from the disease now.
I agree with you. It also would be that the only ones that get that and spread it would only be the ones who are not immunized, not the ones that have been. Who got it first is the ? and where id they get it from?
LG you lost me already,so which side are you on?Sounds like both. Christin,you are right. propaganda.Whose doing it? the left trying to paint RepublicanPres.candidates as not caring about the public's children.It's the left who wants it mandatory
tsa I agree that it is all hype and propaganda. I do not know how I confused and and it doesn't matter.
I don't think it's just the left tsad - the whole system is corrupt and it does no good to blame this side or that. the whole thing needs an overhaul.
My comment had nothing to do with "the system"I'm saying the left,the left wing media&political left is propagandizing the measles outbreak into a vaccine debate to try to taint republicans as uncaring, just as they do with guns,thewaron womenetc
Big pharma owns both parties as do most special interest groups whose sole interest is to line their pockets. That's not a "liberal" agenda tsad, it's how it is on both sides. Both sides also demonize each other to suit their own ends.
The system isn't corrupt,the people elected corrupt it.So you think big pharma is propagandizing the vaccine issue?If they own both sides why do they have to pit left against right?makes no sense.Purely a left ploy for more gov't power over us.
absolutely I think big pharma is using this to its own advantage - pitting people against each other, there are politicians on both sides pushing for mandatory vaccination - a slippery slope when govt dictates what we have to do, no matter which side
Thanks for your point of view Christin so clearly expressed.Still if both sides are pushing for it why is the media and the left trying to paint republicans as neanderthals on this even though Obama&Hillary were against it just a few years ago?
I hear you Tsad, there's plenty of blame to go around, I'm just saying let's not make it political, because there are those of us on both sides who are equally concerned about govt. control of our bodies. :) peace.
I completely agree, I am not against all vaccines, but as a country we vaccinate our kids far more than other countries do, why? I'm with you "Mandatory" over anything about our own bodies is a scary place to go.
I do agree with that. We make our immune system weaker everyday with the anti-bacterial craze and how well we clean our surroundings and ourselves. Antibiotics are not working as well and maiking them stronger is killing our immunity.
I'm wondering,did I write that?Cause I very well could have.Well said,but I do have a question.Though rare there can be side effects.If vaccines are mandated don't you think it only fair expense caused by side effects be paid for by the gov't?
In the end..it IS up to the parent. I did not come at this from a Political stance, nor do I feel it necessary. There are "side effects" to nearly everything we ingest, including FOODS. There R also degrees of side effects. Question is too general.
To the contrary it is very specific.If the gov't mandates your child risk life&limb for public safety, shouldn't it, in interest of a child's safety, provide for some sort of compensation for the risk you are forced to take?Child dies,tough luck?
Specific to YOU! I'm the receiver of the question and I SAY it was too general.U want an ans.or just an argument? Give me stats over 20 yrs of children who DIED due to a vaccine in the U.S. If there's one, I say,"Yes," sue the Gov't! feel better?
So your child suffers adverse reactions due to gv't mandate that is known will cause adverse reactions,though extremely rare&on top of suffering a loss,monetary or physical you have to get a lawyer to sue?If so rare gv't should compensate bylaw.
U asked a question. I gave my best ans. I'm not a genius w/ all the answers. this is why I have friends like you. MORE people should sue the gov't for a LOT of things. They need to back off and down. How is that accomplished my FRIEND?
vaccine makers are protected from lawsuits thought this might interest you both: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/artic...
Thanks Christin,u'r comment led me to do a searchTheVICPlaw uses a nofault system vaccine claims.Covers medical&legal expenses, loss of future earning capacity,up to $250,000 for pain and suffering; a death benefit of up to $250,000I didn't know
Yes, thank you Christin.The parents sued the Pharm Co.-who only make the vaccine available. The Gov't mandates to FORCE parents to have their children immunized. I said, sue the Gov't U found that Pharms Do pay out in some cases, tsad?Im confused
This scary http://www.naturalnews.com/037653_vaccine_additive... but vaccines don’t cause autism http://www.autismspeaks.org/science/science-news/n...
Hey, Mike, the bubble isgreat.We could totally eliminate public schools&put curriculums on the internet.Children wouldn't have to leave home,think of the money the gov't would save=lower taxes. Graduates could work from home, less demand for gas.
If the Educational System in our country doesn't get it's act together, totally eliminating public schools won't hurt a bit. But that's another thread altogether.....common core anyone?
Don't you feel that the government, the education system, virtually anything in control of the government has gotten way out of hand and is no longer just serving the people but the people are serving it, fines for no healthcare, regulation,etc.
Yes, of course I do/have for some time. IMHO Gov't should be reduced to HALF the size and HALF the power. Any suggestions or solutions? I'm all eyes & ears, tsad,.ANYbody doing anything about this besides bitching? I'm 1 old lady/no$/no power. &
Well, yeah, not much this old man can do either but vote for those who say they want to shrink government and not leave our children to foot the bill, then pray they do what they say they will do.
Not enough humans to say enough prayers to see a Politician tell the truth or stand behind his promises. C'mon T...how many more years as an adult voter do you need to know this without doubt?? Politician =LIAR
Ok Liar, you hit my hot button, see what you just instigated me to do http://dianetrotter.hubpages.com/question/251024/w...
You can thank me for instigating you to write that fabulous comment, a bit later...or send me a prize or something....preferably cash. The word is not "instigate," it's INSPIRE...and yes, I am an inspiring individual. Thank you, T.
That you are! And a good English teacher too. Sprichst du deutsch?
That clip is hilarious!!! But why is the woman not blonde?? Soooo funny.
Compulsory vaccine laws have strong support in the state&federal courts for over a century.SupremeCt found constitutionality of a statute authorizing a municipal board of health to require enforce vaccination a valid exercise of thestate’spower.
On what grounds do they say it's constitutional?
What do I look like, a law clerk? ;-) Google it, maybe it will give you the grounds, kind of useless picking apart a Supreme court ruling at this point.
I thought you might just know it. But I’ll stick to my original point, which is that the Constitution does not grant the power, and so there should be no law mandating vaccines - regardless of how the Supreme Court twists and contorts it.
Now that you ask tsad, your profile pic DOES look like most law clerks I know.....tough outer shell and slow as hell.
LMAO, Paula, now that does explain it, doesn't it. A little truth did however lead me to think about the constitution&the power of judicial review. He has a point! which lead to my Q&A does-the-supreme-court-have-the-power-of-judicial-review
