    Babies cant be vaccinated. What that means is they got it off kids who weren't vaccinated. One of the reasons we vaccinate is to protect those who can't (ie babies)

    I've been on this site since 2007 and have yet to see one single piece of evidence which supports not vaccinating our children.

    This - I haven't seen anything either. All the threads seem to go downt he same path - about intuition, governments and big pharma's. Meanwhile anti vaxxers benefit from Herd immuntiy while simultaneously putting it at risk.

    I have never heard about it, and even in this thread I didn't read it to mean that poster was anti vax because of redness and swelling.

    Possibly not a reason for that poster individually but they clearly stated that others may see a local reaction as a medical reason and hence it is valid.

    I find it weird that on here so many dont vaccinate ...and write off the years of medical and scientific evidence backing vaccination. Yet they choose to believe in Amber teething necklaces which have no evidence whatsoever supporting their claims.

    Why do people think they know better than evidence backed science?

    Yes it is and I don't get how people can believe in that too (but respect others right to practice religion since it is so engrained in our society).

    That's a very popular misconception (particularly in these threads...) but to my knowledge it's actually ADULTS who typically spread VPDs.

    There are far more non-vaccinated adults than children.

    And homeopathic vaccinations - which have been proven time and time again to not do anything. I mean, basically it is water? What is that about?
