Yeah, I agree.
I do think Mia Freedman has done exactly that though.
Or at least that is how she comes across to me, but we're all entitled to our own opinions.
I understand that some people cannot vaccinate their children for various reasons. However it is the people who choose not to for their own reasons. I do not believe anyone can be made to do anything so I guess they have every right not to vaccinate, however are these people relying on the rest of us vaccinating our children to protect theirs? What happens if no one vaccinated their children? Can these people tell me that we would not have larger outbreaks of devastating disease?
I'm sure given the possibility (however slight) of a critically ill child and a vaccination, I know what I would be choosing.
I agree with you in your stance on vaxxing. I did reading and I firmly feel vaxxing is the best way to aid in communicable diseases being held at acceptable levels. I also agree that herd immunity is keeping un vaxxed kids relatively safe from disease. But what other parents do with their child is their business. My kids are up to date and covered, and that's all I can control. It doesn't bother me my kids are part of the herd immunity for non vaxxers. I would have got the shots whether it did or not.
I agree with the authors core values, and some of what she says. But there is a tone of being quite patronising and sarcastic. Those that don't vaxx, don't bc they believe it's detrimental to their child. I disagree... but again they aren't my kids...
I do not support a nanny state
