Vaccines For Kids Shirked In Eight States

CBS/AP) Have parents given the cold shoulder to immunizations for their kids? In eight states, more than 1 in 20 public school kindergartners fail to get all the vaccines required for attendance, according to a new Associated Press analysis. That apparent trend has health officials worried about outbreaks of diseases that once were all but eliminated.

With the exception of "religious"
reasons every child should be vaccinated before the enter public schools. If you chose not to, then private school is for you.
I have a few friends in the area that their religion would exempt them, but they still do, because they realize what a public health disaster could be.

And you would have to totally believe what the gubnut says it is putting into your arm and trust them not to do you harm.

I don't believe or trust the gubnut.

If the kids get the disease they can only pass it on to the other kids who chose not to be vaccinated (mercury poisoned).

The vaccinated kids are perfectly safe - so the fears of unvaccinated kids endangering the public is ludicrous! They only endanger other unvaccinated kids.


Or am I missing something?
