I was thinking about 1980 for the Hep B shot so that seems right. Seems some get flu like symptoms from the vaccinations, never bothered me either. I do have several friends that did the Hep C and got sick as a dog. Hep C is a big issue in my area due to IV drug users.
I think that woman should come forward.
Has she come forward to back up Bachmann?
I haven’t see anything on that.
“I havent see anything on that.”
Me neither, not yet.
I’d also like to see that woman who said that she would not have to worry about paying her rent, or gasoline, after Obama’s election. :) But I digress.
Thanks, I saw an earlier post that made the claim that Gardisil worked against both diseases and therefore was appropriate to give to boys. It didn’t sound right.
I guess Santorum’s daughters are all on their way to the nunnery.
How does a virus know if it is promiscuous or not.
I am no supporter of Bachmann, but your charge is totally unfair. She is a Lutheran, and like every other Protestant sect, they believed way back when what you charged. I would never charge a current Catholic believes that heretics should be burned at the stake. By your reasoning every US President except one was not qualified to be President and were Klansmen to boot.
Quit possible. He did have a reasoned answer to the difference between measles vaccinations and HPV.
Perry did not by pass the legislature. The legislature had long ago “passed enabling legislation: they delegated the authority to mandate vaccines without over site to the Department of State Health Services.
The legislature would have had to change the law. The way the “opt out” clause reads, no one is allowed to keep a list at the DSHS. The bill names and links to the text are at this WingRight post: http://wingright.org/2011/08/07/dose-of-reason-perry-and-gardasil/
Thanks for posting this.

I remember when I first heard about this vaccine. My immediate reaction was “Thank Goodness! They may have found something here.” While it only applies to a particular type of cancer at this point...perhaps new research will find that other cancers may be prevented with vaccines!
But no.....what should be a discussion of this new horizon in medicine has been drowned out by this stupid argument. It makes me sick.
What year did they do that? Probably early in the 20th century. Much different era. Perhaps it's time to take back some of the delegated authority.
That “conservative” politician allowed her teen daughter to go to a co-ed camp-out which included drugs and alcohol. I don’t know why you think that can’t be prevented. I guarantee my children have never been in any kind of situation like that.
Try doing a search for seizure disorders associated with the DPT shot.
That legislation was updated in 2007.
Some of the articles I've read about this vaccine describe really serious side effects. Perfectly healthy girls became chronically weak and some even died.
Read the link. Her church prior to her leaving it to run for President openly believed it. I understand most religions officially follow the view “be our religion or you are going to hell” (I know mine does) but to claim another religion is satanic and led by the antichrist is a little out there....
I haven't said anything about the dangers. That isn't my issue. My concern is the government telling parents how to raise their children.
And if you don't want to vaccinate your child, you can keep him home and away from the other school children.
Just before you fly off the handle, look around and think about how so many children did not make it to adulthood just a couple of generations ago.
There is an exploitation to the hysteria surrounding a lot of anti-vaccine attitudes. I had a friend who was convinced that pertussis vaccination caused his child to be autistic because of one journal article in the Lancet that later turned out to be sheer fraud. There was no reaching this friend and I didn't even try, because some emotion had taken ahold of him and he was so relieved to find someone to blame for the inexplicable affliction.
Sort of like having a witch in the village to blame everything on.
I've seen a few of these mass hysteria come and go. I remember a particularly awful episode in the Clinton years when suddenly there were daycare centers that practiced child abuse and satan worship--ya, ya, ya--and innocent people spent years in jail. I wonder if Janet Reno will get what's coming to herm...
Calm down, dear. I never said anything against vaccines for diseases that are communicable by casual means, such as polio.
I guess I do get worked up over that. A prolonged shortage of any vaccine could be catastrophic if enough people go without it. We have had many shortages of the tetanus vaccine.
And Gardisil is not a high priority. Do you know that Gardisil protects against some genital herpes?
It's not a BAD thing. Just a thing to approach with wisdom.
A lot of these vaccines don't work for everybody. Did you know that? What we depend on is the "firewall" of those around us who are successfully immune. The immune protect the non-immune. That's why I hate a hysterical approach to vaccines.
That any med has side effects is unavoidable.
