Very little in life makes me rage more than anti-vaccine idiots. Unless you have a medical or scientific degree, you are not qualified to make decisions on the effectiveness of vaccines or modern medicine. If people don’t want to vaccinate their kids,  that’s fine, but they should all go and live in a colony together so they can keep their diseases to themselves, and live short and unfulfilling lives

I don’t think this thread will end well but let me just say that I wholeheartedly agree.

I’m on my phone so I can’t but someone needs to post the rant/speech from the tv show house where he’s talking about parents who refuse vaccinations. I agree wholeheartedly. I’m so sick of seeing people on Facebook preaching about an issue that they became a so-called expert on through social media and scare tactics of misinformed alarmists.

@wideeyes:  YES!  I’m so SICK of the whole “Well there was this study that linked vaccines to autism!”  Yes, and it ended up getting discredited!  It’s a complete joke, on par with the cold fusion debacle from the late 80s/early 90s.  (For those of you who don’t know, there was some “evidence” of cold fusion that was published, yet no one could replicate the findings.  Not exactly a good career move in claiming cold fusion without the proper back-up.)

 

As my parents said when they were asked why they would risk vaccinating their child, “She was vaccinated so that your child is safer.”  I’m definitely saving it for when I’m asked one day.

I have several friends that are anti-vaccine… and I don’t really understand it. I have seen a lot of the evidence proving that it DOESN’T cause autism… but I haven’t heard any other reasons not to vaccinate. And yay, there’s a measles outbreak of 17 cases and counting in my city because a church advocated no vaccines.

Meanwhile, one of our best friends has taken her 7 month old to multiple countries, including African countries with current outbreaks of fun diseases like polio. They recently adopted a baby from one of those countries. I know she doesn’t believe in vaccinating.

So my worry now is, we’re due in November with our first baby. How do I NOT bring my child around this sweet family (that doesn’t vaccinate)? My husband and I are not comfortable exposing our child to potential diseases before he can be vaccinated, and that will take several months. We see them a lot more than that normally. What do we do in the meantime?

Sorry to threadjack… would love anyone’s thoughts on how to handle this!

@Miss Damask:  Is she vocal about not vaccinating? I would just be straight up and blunt with her – I cannot see you or be around your family until after baby X has had all of their shots because your children could pass something onto him. See you in X months. 

Give her a taste of the “other side”. 

Your child’s health is too precious.

@julies1949:  I too am in the Fraser Valley and know a nurse (and mother) who works at ARH. Totally frightening to hear it so close to home.

@Everdeen:  I agree. She needs to learn that it’s one of the consequences of not vaccinating – people with small children are obliged to stay away from her.

This pisses me off so much…of course they will be the first to cry out when their kid gets polio, measles, etc.
