    I think the rise in "attachment parenting" has a lot to do with this in these areas.
    What does attachment parenting have to do with it? All the attachment parents I know vaccinate. There's nothing incompatible about AP and vaccinations.

    I have never ever heard a pro vaxxer deny that vaccines can cause reactions. Ever. Just look at all the threads on here and you'll see, we all know that they can cause adverse reactions.

    Some anti-vaxxes claim that vaccines don't even work. And pro-vaxxes seem to deny that vaccines could possibly cause any harm.
    I'm a bit interested in discussing these extreme viewpoints. Not to create a ****storm, but out of curiosity and possibly even to educate myself.

    Where is this study? Is it peer reviewed? How was it done? How many people were studied? That is a massive claim really.

    Many are anti-vax. Sad but true - there's a rather large forum of them.

    But vaccination is something that impacts the whole community.

    So someone who chooses not to vax is potentially increasing the risk of harm others, it increases the risk to newborns, those who are immuno compromised and people who cannot be vaccinated. Their decision impacts many.

    That is why I am intolerant of people who are anti-vax.
    Well said!

    Oh that's a bit unfair. I'm more AP than not, but all of my children are vaxed. I am very much pro Vax.

    I don't understand the point of this thread tbh. OP says she doesn't get either fanatical side, but then talks about how she wishes she had taken a "free ride" with her kids and has only liked the anti vaxxed posts. Seems like the whole point is just to stir the pot. I would like to post something from the paper yesterday, I read it and wanted to high five him!

    Opposition health spokesman Andrew McDonald went a step further, blasting the controversial anti-vaccine lobby the Australian Vaccination-Skeptics Network as "evil".
    :high five:

    As someone previously mentioned, the worst offenders for avoiding vaccinations are the affluent. There are certain groups with whom it's very popular.

    My partner's dad lives in the part of the country with the lowest vaccination rates - far north NSW. For anyone who knows the area (think Byron Bay, Lismore, Ballina, Nimbin etc.), this won't be anything of a surprise. When DD was born, they wanted to come and stay with us for a week. I put my foot down and said that if they and their kids weren't up to date with their vaccinations, they weren't staying with us. Thankfully they hold a least SOME trust in science, and the kids were up to date, so it didn't cause an issue.

    Something really important to remember with regard to VPDs - we don't live in an enclosed community. Overseas travel is so incredibly commonplace, and people regularly bring back diseases from countries where rates of measles etc. are high. In the past year in Adelaide, there was a case of a family who came back from overseas with measles. I don't know for sure, but given the contact they then warned about (at a very alternative school, also an alternative area/suburb), I think it's a reasonable bet that they weren't vaccinated. There was also a childcare worker just a few weeks ago who was diagnosed with measles, having been in contact with hundreds of kids whilst infectious.

    These are risks that needn't be there.
