    Default Religion and Vaccinations.

    As I barely know anything about any religion (was barely conscious for lessons in the religion I was born in to) can people chime in with what religions refuse to vaccinate.

    Curious.

    Default Religion and Vaccinations.

    i wasn't aware there was a connection between religion and refusal to vax? i was brought up catholic, as were many/all of my friends. we are all vaxxed.

    unless you're meaning hard line fundamentalist groups? i'm guessing they refute the benefits of science in favour of god's/jesus' savior/grace to save them?

    Oh yeah, why group are they? Mormons?

    I meant generally.
    Unsure if any just blanket refuse or only small pockets refuse.
    Kind of important to know these days with mass migration.

    It is Church of Christ, Scientist. And it is no longer a permitted exemption.

    No need to be alarmist about migration.

    I'm pretty sure the JW's won't, along with refusing blood transfusions, as they believe essentially what will be will be, and they leave it in God's hands.

    From what I know, the biggest dangers to our herd immunity and vax rates are middle/high income people born in Aust

    I was going to suggest JW but I thought it was only receiving human products they weren't ok with. This makes so much more sense the way you explained it.

    That's what I thought too... I still for the life of me don't understand why. I live in an area with low vac rates although I'm yet to meet anyone who doesn't vaccinate (or that I know about). My daughter recently got a staph infection from mozzie bites (mozzies are really bad at the moment) and the doctor told me to find some mild natural insect repellant I brought 20% DEET

    Who is being an alarmist?
    What exactly in my post sounded like I was running for the hills?

    I know when we were living in an area of low vax rates I had heard of people pretending they didn't vax when they did.
    Most likely to avoid the conversation I suppose.
