    I couldn't agree more.

    I see posts about how selfish not vaxxing is but genuinely don't understand how?

    I guess the best way to look at it would be through the lens of someone's experience of having to go through having a sick young infant in hospital, not knowing if they will pull through, caused by a preventable illness contracted from ( likely) a non vaxxing person.

    Thanks but that doesn't answer my question.

    Both vaxxed and non-vaxxed people are carriers and spread disease.

    ETA I'm not asking in an argumentative way, just curious.
    I don't. I see vaxxing as largely unnecessary medical inteference. If the need for any particular vax arises, as I have stated before, I do get them done.

    Anecdotal I know but my children caught chicken pox from a vaccinated family, they had it milder than the vaccinators children did before somone chimes in saying how vaccines help to reduce severity of illness, they had about 5 spots each, a temp and a bit of a runny nose.

    And no I'm not saying vaccines dont do the above, just sharing my experience.

    Do you have any qualifications that have helped you come to that conclusion?

    Badgering. This is the crap I am talking about. Has anyone ever asked anyone in a ff thread whether they are a chemist, so do they really know if formula is REALLY as good as breastmilk?

    I am a parent who is entitled to make this decision, with the understanding I have (NO I don't have to be a medical professional to have a working knowledge of vaxxes!) without having to be badgered by you about it.

    No they didn't.

    Neither did the GP I took my daughter to last week for a viral infection, he felt it was his (god given) duty to hound me about it despite me explicitly telling him twice that I was in no fit state due to hyperemesis to discuss my reasonings with him on that particular day and that we had our conscientious objectors form completed.

    Mini vent there sorry! Actually no I'm not sorry, I sat there in tears while he as MM put it badgered me about it.
