    I've changed my mind from debating on bh. At first I was pro vax, but after doing heaps of reading (to back up my claims on here) I can say I am now unequivocally and passionaltey pro vax, before I agreed with it, but didn't know that much about it and was a bit "meh" about the whole thing. But now - Totally 100%, not a question in my mind. Vaccinations are probably he single most important and effective scientific breakthrough the world has ever seen

    It seems that a lot of the disease comes down to sanitation.

    Does anyone actually change their mind about things from posts like this? I know I switched camps so to speak but I was never particularly passionate so was open to suggestion.
    If my family and myself have been living off some herd immunity, then thanks
    Im not injecting any of us with things I don't understand.

    Me too. There is nothing in articles like this that even touch the sides in changing my mind. I can't even entertain the thought of not vaccinating.

    I've missed you @beebs.

    As for the articles, I prefer my science from people who don't believe in chemtrails or homeopathy and who practice in their area of expertise.

    In any case the first article indicates that even the writer believes in herd immunity (but somehow only from nature not from vaccines), so I don't think there is any disputing that it exists.

    Got DD vaxed today for her 12 months. Had a good chat to the Dr about all sorts of things. While I can't speak for every doctor, mine is professional and definitely doesn't receive any sort of 'kickbacks' for vaccinations.

    Thanks for sharing! It makes me more pi$$ed watching this tbh. Our "loop holes" for sending non-vaxxed kids to school are pitiful.
