    I was just thinking this, too. I've never heard of a vaccine being 100% effective, this is why we rely on a certain percentage of the population keeping up to date with their vaccinations.

    Surely people don't believe that NOT vaccinating is 100% effective

    You would be surprised how many people think vaccines are 100%.

    I agree, it is a big decision.

    I do agree elleandsam, I have read a lot of people say that their kids won't catch things because they are vaccinated - not necessarily true.

    I do think that some people put their faith in their GPs that the medical profession will do right by them. My mum didn't do research upon research about ovarian cancer and chemotherapy before she was rushed off for a hysterectomy. And thank goodness she didn't. There may not have been time. I think it's fine to have faith in your medical teams.

    Ah the good ol' AVN. Lots of scaremongering and citing of ridiculous 'facts' which are never backed up with any real research except some obsure or faked study. as to capricorns comments there is no research to prove the positives of vaxxes, and all vaxxes create all the illness in the world I laughed for about 5 mins straight reading those posts.

    I honestly feel sorry for the normal non vaxxers on this forum. Rest assured I for one don't put you in the same catagory as all the rubbish listed here by our new AVN member

    I agree

    I actually think the AVN does the entire 'anti-vaccination' stance a huge disservice with their paranoid delusions. They have the opposite effect of what they are trying to achieve IMO because they're a huge joke.

The fact that it is still around is a monument to the ruthlessness of some people, and the stupidity of others who have been unable to figure out that vaccination is an absolute fraud.
    My DP is an industrial chemist with close to 20 years experience of analysing chemicals (including water - yes water is a chemical). He has experience of how pharmaceuticals are produced, regulated and audited (TGA). Although he has never worked for a pharm company that produces vaccines he has worked for a pharm company years ago that made medications and can detail the process they follow and how they are audited by the TGA. The TGA have varying levels of specifications for different products. For example I believe the "bottom rung" so to speak is topical veterinary products, the "highest rung" is vaccines for human use. Would you like some further information?
