    I was dumbfounded.

    So yes, in a way.
    That sounds uneducated rather than following a trend.

    The whole correlation vs causation thing...
    I think That is some cases yes.

    There are some groups that do just follow the trend without doing their own proper research.

    I had a friend a few years back make the decision not to vaxx based on Internet advice. Her bubs ended up contracting whooping cough and almost dying.

    It really shook her to the core and the child (and new brother) have now been vaccinated.

    I respect absolutely the right for parents to choose against vaxing, but I believe it should be an informed choice.

    'Hmm the CO are increasing! The amount of people uptaking the MMR vaccine is low- lets add another live virus to the vaccine and see if that makes them take it up' seems a bit to me

    Yep. When these diseases start rampaging through communities and affecting those who can least cope with them, I hope all the non-vaxxers are happy.

    Umm yeah we'll be throwing parties

    Everyone does what they think is best for their child/family. No one benefits by people getting ill and no one vaxing or not wants others to get ill.

    It's just that vaxxing is a very grey area, you damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    Some of the highest non vax rates are starting to be in areas with highly educated middle class, like the northern beaches. I find that really interesting.

    And this cluster have involved immigrants, but that is only half of them so far, so half of those who have contracted them are in fact people from here, who aren't vaccinated.

    And whooping cough outbreak started in the norther rivers - which is very much an attachment parenting - for want of a better word hippy/crunchy area. I don't mean that attachment parents are the only ones to blame at all, but it does seem to be a group that doesn't vaccinate.

    Um yeah - aren't they called pox parties? And wasn't there measles parties being advertised on facebook recently, it made the news. And people on bubhub have actually said how wonderful these kinds of parties are in the past, so it isn'tlike it doesn't happen.
