    Yes interesting. I said before I am pro-vax but I did choose for DD not to have hep B at birth. She has had every other vaccine on the schedule.
    IMO the hep B at birth was unnecessary in my family as both DH & I know we are negative (from 3 years of fertility treatment, we were tested multiple times) and our lifestyle is extremely low risk for other modes of transmission.
    However, if that choice were to preclude me from receiving CCR down the track I may have reconsidered! I would have been annoyed though because I do understand the science & did not put others at risk with my choice.

    Many apologies for the wiki quote - it wouldn't stand up in an assessment, I know! But I'm sure the reference trail can be verified by those with more time.
    Eh, no harm in wiki as long as it has references I realise that, that is why I mentioned the new vaccine is safer. Medicine is constantly evolving, and its good that they are continually working on safer vaccines. And as we all know, no medicine is 100% safe, they are pretty close though- even compared with other meds. Its a risk assessment isn't it? Right now its fairly safe to not vax, but if there was a major outbreak of something, then it wouldn't be anymore. I think that is probably the direction we are headed. An outbreak of something we thought we were safe from, and the we'll see what happens re none vaxxers.

    previously granted c/o will remain in place, its just for people newly seeking them so I think people whove previously not followed the vaccine schedule thi wont matter

    For the record JW's are not anti vax

    Hmm, I'm between two minds.
    On the one hand, it's great that they are trying to push for more vaccinations, and having a consequence for choosing not to do so.
    On the other, a lot of people rely on these payments.

    But, if they had done the "no vacc no school" thing there would be screaming about it not being the kids fault, and they shouldn't be "held back" because of their parent's choice.

    There's no right way to do this, unfortunately.

    Christian Scientists do and those of the Jewish and Islamic faith boycott some vaccines because the ingredients are derived from animal products that they aren't allowed to consume.
