    Id doesnt say anyone dies from it or even if they were seriously ill/required hospitalisation.

    I rest my case...we live in a world were medical treatments are available and most VPD are treated with antibiotics...usually just from a GP.
    There are a whole lot of steps between being alive and healthy and being dead...

    But you often don't know your child has a vpd until it's too late.

    I think that should be illegal - if you work in a care profession you should legally have to be vaccinated. As it is currently - even nurses and doctors can get exemptions. That is not ok!
    Definitely. But so many carers don't even know they're vax should be updated, especially if they don't work for an agency but not even all agencies make sure you're up to date. I didn't know until my GP suggested it to me since he knew I worked with young babies.

    @loislane2010 can I ask why you choose not to vax and where you get the info that helps you feel confident in your decision? I ask because I've seen you make a couple comments that, to me, are alarming and seem as though you haven't thoroughly researched your decision.

    Generally Adult vaxxes aren't talked about, so it doesn't surprise me. Hey - the only reason I am so pro vax is I caught two VPDs within a year of each other - I had no idea we were supposed to have boosters!

    Yeah I think there is a whole lack of awareness when it comes to adult vaccine boosters. Gp's don't even mention them in check ups. (Well mine didn't until I got preggers),

    It should be talked about just as much though, especially in professions like a nanny or doula where you're often in contact with very young babies. I've been told I can't take a job if I have a coldsore present but never asked my vax status.

    My GP was awesome, always thinking of stuff like that. Another reason to miss Melbourne .

    I immunised for MMR as a baby/child as per the schedule back in the 70's.. Im now in my 40s and earlier this year i had to check my immunity status for several vaccinations .. I was not immune to Measles plus 3 others... I have since had the MMR again and this time im immune. My point is, how many ppl out there vaccinate their children and they arent immune? My GP told me its quite common... am i the only one that thinks its scary thinking you are covered when you may not be?
