    Default Religion and Vaccinations.

    I had someone in my fb complain about the halal logo on Vegemite yet they didn't seem to know there was a kosher symbol directly underneath as well

    Legit?
    I stumbled across it earlier while looking up some info.

    http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/about/
    Had a brief look...I generally can't be bothered with those sort of pages... I'll stick with the multitude of science in favour. Looking back in history is quite enough for me. Vaccination is not perfect, no medication is..there are risks and always will be, but they are very small. Do the benefits outweigh the risks? Absolutely...history show us that.

    I grew up in a fringe christian group I don't even know how to categorise it. It's vaguely related to 7th day adventist, but quite different.

    I was never vaccinated during my childhood. I think my parents were motivated by religious reasons, but they weren't exactly anti-vax because my older siblings were all fully vaccinated. I was also not taken to the doctor when I had childhood illnesses. I think the faith and reasoning behind my parents' decision is a bit complicated but could be basically summed up as a combination of: God's in charge and you should have faith that God will take care of your child and protect them AND science/medicine is an arrogant attempt to play God.

    My siblings and their peers in that religion have some vaccinated their children and others not vaccinated. This religion adheres to food laws, and from memory I think my sister did not vaccinate because the vaccinations are 'unclean', that is, some contain animal products or derivatives that are the bible says in the old testament should not be eaten or touched. There are probably other religious factors that motivated her decision, but it's been a long time since we've had any discussion about it.

    I got totally caught up on vaccinations after one of our friend's children got severely sick and we were visiting them in the children's hospital. I didn't want to be a threat to others' health in the future. But that was a decision I made when I was no longer religious.

    This. Lots of anti-vaxxers tried to join this church to get the exemption, but a couple of years ago, the church confirmed that they do not object to vaccinations so the exemption was scrapped.

    In other words, there are no genuine religions currently that object to vaccinations.

    I wasn't either, I just found it completely whacky.
    In particular the religious section as that's what came up first when I was searching for info.
