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.
