Yep...this thread is getting silly, and I am getting annoyed. Goodbye.

My DSS had about 20 spots and wasn't too unwell. My dd and DSD however- they were covered. DSD had them up in her vagina and bottom, in her ears and throat. She had a high fever and was sick as a dog as well as being in terrible discomfort. DD had them everywhere too and couldn't help scratch a few, so had some get infected. She had a high temp and was really sick. DH was about 34 at the time and sick as a dog. Did you see the comment from a PP where an unvaccinated kid got them and now needs a liver transplant? Scary stuff.
People still have the right to informed consent. Thats why we have conscientious objectors forms, thats why they are required for enrollments at schools and childcare and for family assistance. Unless you avoid all of those things or can live without FA than it is pretty hard not to have one. Most of the families I know who do not vaccinate or who delay vaccinate do so with informed consent from people with medical degrees (aka thier doctors) it is still our legal right.
I will be very concerned when/if the day comes that they make vaccinations mandatory unless you have a medical condition. How will we know who is going to react to them and what will the consequenses be for those involved and the government?
I doubt you would take it so nonchalantly if you were sitting by the bedside of your child in intensive care. . unable to cuddle them. .. or help them. . and watching them struggle to breathe. . to live. Wondering if you would get to take your child home to live a normal life.

I was shocked to learn that I live in an area that hasn't got the greatest vax rates (around the low 80% mark I think), despite being an "affluent" inner city area.
We need to pick a school for DD for 2016 and there are several state schools to choose from, I wonder if schools can tell me the percentage of students who are fully vaccinated? I don't want DD starting prep with a bunch of germ carriers.
The only reason people can afford NOT to vaccinate is because the majority of parents DO. Of course there are parents who delay because of past reactions or have a family history of severe reactions to vaccines. I think this is totally valid in those circumstances.
This topic really angers me because there are thousands of parents in other countries who would walk for 2 days with a baby on their back, for the chance to have their child vaccinated against preventable diseases.
I get SO sick of people saying that things like chicken pox, whooping cough and measles are just minor illnesses. I have a friend who works in the children's ward and she see's how terrifying it is for a parent with a small baby struggling to breathe from whooping cough or extremely ill from measles. It might not be common to get a bad case of these diseases but they are PREVENTABLE.
I also agree with PP's that Dr Google is no the go-to and everyone is an expert and the doctors who study for years know nothing.
Yes, our medical systems have come a long way. This progress has involved vaccines that significantly reduce the likelihood of getting a disease, and the severity of the disease if it is contracted.
