Less than 50% is horrifying! I don't understand how people think that it's ok! No one ever thinks it will happen to them! Unfortunately until its too late =(
All it would take is one person to go overseas, catch measles and then bring it into their community. What are they thinking?
My son is fully vaccinated to schedule & he still caught meningococcal, we nearly lost him - I would never wish that on anyone!! I would hate to see anyone who wasn't vaccinated catch it. As I said before - you never think it will happen to you, until it does! People can't just assume it won't happen to them!
That is so scary Melab. How awful for you all
*I can haz typos*
It was the worst time of my life! I can't understand why people don't immunise (obviously unless for medical reasons). Why wouldn't people want to protect the news they love & at the same time getting rid of these diseases!
Yes that does sound harsh, but unfortunately people don't know what kind of effect these diseases have because we don't often see them (because of vaccinations). But when you do see first hand how devastating they are, it might make people rethink not vaxxing (not saying an epidemic would be good by any means)
Yes, if you read further on, you would see that I realised that it would affect others and I changed my mind about it. Of course I don't want those who can't be vaxxed for whatever reason to get sick.
I am just sick to death of all the ridiculous excuses that anti vaxxers make.
You can't have it both ways. You cannot be an anti vaxxer and sit back thinking that nothing will happen, because it will. The rest of the world proves it.
Now that is harsh, Selfish and bleeding harsh, on their own kids and everybody else.
