Well, why not? I say "yes". As part of the left-wing, socialist part of our country, I say all of us have an obligation to protect our children and our sisters and brothers, part of that includes vaccines.
I don't use the excuse of being a vegetarian stop me, either. That and the excuse of being religious infuriates me. Hey, I care about animals, but that doesn't stop me from getting a whooping cough vaccine so that I can't infect young immigrant children from becoming ill.
I feel that the young, middle class are THE dummies causing the outbreaks of older diseases and putting our infants, the ones who are too young to receive vaccines especially, and those who are immunocompromised, at risk. There is no dumber class. None. They are the ones who you see at Whole Foods, instead of the fresh vegetable and fruit market stalls that sell for a third the price. Decor and good lighting matter to them, not the price and quality. Instead of buying a 8-ounce bar of South of France soap at an online heath and body store for $3.85, they would rather go to the fancy yuppie grocery story and pay $7. THAT kind of mind-set.
"I don't want my child to be autistic" No one wants your baby to be autistic. But no one really knows what causes this, if it is a soft-injury to the brain, or what. I personally don't believe the numbers are rising. When I was a squirt in school, autistic children were labeled as "mentally retarded". Autistic children are being recognized(finally) as such today; that is all.
Back to what I was saying about unvaccinated children. I believe their parents' arms should be twisted and the children vaccinated. No excuses, no special treatment given to religious or to sects. Sorry Amish folk. The children in this country need and deserve the best we can give them.
Unvaccinated children should not be allowed to enter into school or into nurseries. Undocumented children and adults should be vaccinated by nurses in mobiles clinics traveling through neighborhoods and their parents given paperwork to prove it. No charge, no demand for names. Just like we do with the flu vans now in battered women's shelters. It is doable.
As for "my rights, my rights". Your rights, what? Your rights stop the instant you deliberately endanger the life of a fellow citizen and/or the life of a child. Screw you. Now stick out your arm and stop sniveling.

Vaccines are a lie. They damage the immune system, often permanently. They have nothing to do with the elimination of disease, but rather cause dysfunction. The way the body works toward perfect health means that when a person gets sick, they are usually detoxifying and normalizing. The symptoms of disease are not the disease itself. To suppress symptoms is only to make the overall condition worse, often manifesting at a later date.

So, let me get this straight: When a child contracts smallpox, it's because their body is detoxifying and "normalizing"? From what? The sugar-frosted flakes they had for breakfast? Smallpox, Yellowfever, Rabies? This is detoxing? Normalizing? Balancing? How does the death of the child fit in? I mean, if the parents let the body does what it would do naturally if there were no medical intervention.

What nonsense! Children should be vaccinated. If their parents refuse to protect them, then the medical community needs to step in and do it for them. Mandatory vaccines.

Hi, interesting, I agree vaccines is a lie... And makes a healty body sick.
This story goes like this...
We keep them stupid, (you can tell them everything, they are very gullible..')
We keep them poor, (the pharmaceutical companies Winn Billions and more one those vaccines...)
We keep them frightened ( so we can manipulate them like we want and that we call then governing... In the best interest off the population off course)
You should inquire what happened to the Swineflu Vaccines for an example, interesting... Believe you, me...
And I would like to know to have the choice if I want disease put into me, yes or no.
Obliging other people to vaccinate there children is, this is no go, we are in a democracy everyone has his own truth, values, knowing, etc... And every one is Responsible for himself not more not less.

One thing I've noticed here, and that is not one anti-vaccine person can stitch together a coherent sentence.

I believe in vaccination, but I also believe that the parents have a right to make the decisions for their children. If that means they have to pull their kids from school, then so be it. They can always home school. But no one should be able to force drugs on their kids. That leaves a bad taste in the mouth. I think there are better ways to convince parents that vaccines are good than to use force or blackmail to get the message across.

no no no do not ever "seclude" a child from school they do not deserve this! children need to learn to live and work and play with each other. this is more important than a damn vaccine. of course they do need vaccines but this can eventually be worked out with the parents it is a matter of education but never punish the child

Personally I don't believe in the herd immunity. But I do strongly believe in vaccinating our children and protecting them as best we can. I am against the mercury in child vaccines however. There is no reason for this, in this day and age of refrigeration. So now then, what to do with vaccinated children?
Well, I guess you could keep them in school and make the parents with unvaccinated kids sign waivers. If your child dies, it's your fault. But that is not fair to the child. So I guess it's best to refuse the kids.
Also, the kids shouldn't be allowed into public playgrounds. I'm quite serious. Any tax-funded children's area. See if that will help the parents with a dose of common sense.

Dear "Still Sarah" -
If your child and the other children in her class are vaccinated (and you believe these vaccinations work). Why should your child, or any of the others be in danger from my un-vaccinated child? Unless you don't have confidence in what you believe about vaccinations... that can be your only answer... right!

Wow. Such a stupid post, stuffed with sarcasm and low-brow rhetoric.
Most children in school will be vaccinated by law. The hold-outs are the children of religious fanatics, and there will be a day soon when they cannot "opt-out" because of their fanaticism. Withholding vaccines and medications and a doctor's care will be seen for what it is: child abuse.
Parents who withhold medical care are deviants. They shouldn't be allowed to have children in the first place. The children should be removed and handed over to a mentally-healthy family.
However, in answer to your ridiculous questions, children also gather in playgrounds, friends' parties, churches, beaches and carnivals, malls, grocery stores, etc. , not just schools. Vaccines cannot be given at certain ages(generally the very young), so if a sickened child is in one of these places, then the toddlers and infants are in danger. Also in dangers are of course, children from abusive, fanatically religious families, new immigrant children and their parents.
Parents should be watching out for themselves, too, as most of our childhood vaccines need boosters in adulthood, like Whooping Cough.
Fanatically religious families(and stupid, poorly educated Yuppies) also find ways to selfishly put their children into schools, and there are always a number of children who have not had the opportunity to be vaccinated for the same reasons I have already stated.
So contrary to what you whine on about, your unvaccinated child IS a danger to other children, because not only is there a chance that some have not been vaccinated, but in some cases, a child can become a carrier, and even though she is not ill, she can walk out and potentially infect scores of other children outside of the classroom.
You have a far better chance of causing injury to your child's brain by using cheap plastic milk bottles to nurse them and by stuffing them with red meat and candy.
And of course, being a stupid, selfish forker and refusing your child the right to be vaccinated.

So, you're liberal attitudes don't extend to the Amish community (and, undoubtedly, similar minorities you would ride roughshod over). No one has the right to stick needles in other peoples children. Live and let live.
