    Sure probably minority, but dosn't mean everyone that every non vaxxer is doing it

    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.
    What site has the different areas and vax rates, I've tried looking for it before but couldn't find it

    Is it because people are trying to be 'natural'? and not mess with the natural order of things? A hell of a lot of people died from hideous diseases before vaccinations came on the scene. I wouldn't turn my back on modern medicine and science for love nor money.

    Possible I'm misunderstanding your POV - usually pro-vaxxers arent 'allowed' to comment in the anti vax section, but this thread has plenty of 'anti-vax' comments in it so if both 'sides' are discussing it shouldnt it stay in a general section?

    I read it in the paper when the whooping cough outbreak started again

    "Northern Sydney and South Eastern Sydney have led the way in this year's resurgent epidemic, recording the highest incidence of whooping cough, with 669 and 522 cases respectively. The Illawarra region was next highest followed by Western Sydney and Southern Sydney."

    Me neither, and because measles can lead to complications, a lot of the time you need to be treated in hospitals, with medication, by doctors. How does that even make sense, that isn't natural either.
