    And you would think the big Pharma companies would be all over it too, more adults than babies so more money for them!

How is that any of your business?

    I can't speak for every non-vaxxing parent, but my research (and like I said I am a vaccinating parent anyway) comes from reputable sources, not becuase my neighbour believes her out of control child has autism from a vaccination. I believe in herd immunity, which is the main reason we choose to vaccinate, but this time we are considering delayed/selective vax because the chance my baby has contracting (example) Hep B from me is slim-none, my other children are vaccinated and this baby wont be at daycare so risk of bites or anything else where the disease could be contracted are very low.
    Your post is the last one I read, seen one vax/non vax thread, you've seen them all. For my part I think it's simple, if your child is SICK (or yourself) keep them isolated & don't spread the germs (vaxed - non vaxed it makes no difference) the one thing that will stop the spread of disease quicker is a return to basic hygiene & manners. I have a compromised immune system, if I had a $ for every shop assistant that coughed & spluttered in their hand before picking up my food, every snot ridden bleary eyed child delivered to child care because Mummy cares more about her job . . . . I swear! It's not rocket science & I'm sick of other peoples selfishness. Hands up if you've taken a child 'recovering' from chicken pox for a quick grocery run, you just spread it around, that's all it takes for someone like me (or a newborn) to get the illness - vaxing is a moot point when we are a selfish society that puts the $ before our children

    AS a side point, seperate to adults being vaxxed to stop transmission, it would make sense for employers to do this to save money on sick days. Don't understand why more don't do it.

    If only people had more sick days. 3 paid sick days per year, and they need to be saved in case the kid gets sick. Luckily I rarely get sick. If I do it's mild.

    Your answer is too simplistic and unrealistic in today's world. Employers often make it impossible for people to take sick leave or if they do allow it because they are forced to by legislation, they often make it known that they are unhappy with employees taking leave, especially to care for children.

    Before you continue to criticise those mothers who care more about their jobs (your words) turn your anger towards the employers and legislators.

    3!? I was under the impression that most industries were 10 (for full-time employees)...?
