    Did anyone see the recent Ama on reddit with a 58 year old lady from Sydney who was not vaccinated and got polio as a child? IT was a really good read, what a strong lady. I. Was saddened to see that she feels reclusive as she gets stared at in public, but then so pleased to see the overwhelming support for her on there.

    If it is commonly agreed that Vaccinated people either (a) don't contract the illness at all or (b) have a mild and harmless version of the illness thanks to the vaccine... What's the problem? If the vaccine does what it claims to why are you so worried about the risk from the unvaccinated?

    well, personally I'm not just worried about our own children - but the other people around us who may not be able to get vaccinated for medical reasons, or have immune system related conditions. or as others have mentioned newborns. etc

    Because if your kids were vaccinated that risk of contraction would be a lot less. Rather than seeing a decrease in diseases that could have been eliminated by vaccine were seeing a resurgence - it's about chain of consequence and your decision and the decision of other anti vax are having consequences for the entire population. Your choice effects everyone and that's wrong.

    That's not really answering the question though. If vaccines make the disease harmless, contracting them would be no bigger annoyance/unpleasantness than a cold or gastro. So why the big witch hunt?

    Because there are people who cannot be immunised. There are people who would love to be able to but cant. Because of anti vaxers, the chance of these people contracting a VPD is so much higher than it need be.

    Because for diseases like whooping cough where tiny babies aren't vaccinated, there is a huge risk for them. And for those who are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons. These people rely on herd immunity so the more people that vaccinate, the stronger the protection for those that can't be vaccinated.

    What?

    Sorry - 7 posts in and I'm sniffing a troll - especially with comments like this.

    Troll? Really? I ask an honest question and I'm met with suspicion and accusations. Really, I'm trying to get a balanced perspective to my point of view about a real health issue.
