I'm so upset by these foolish people who make the "personal" decision to not vaccinate their children based on the disproven theory that vaccinations cause autism, endangering their children and others around them. Because they live in a society which has all but stamped out these diseases through vaccinations they are clueless as to the horrors that can befall their own children because of their ignorance; they have no personal experience at the ravages of these diseases so they ignore them.

The happy little fellow on the left in the picture was my uncle who died from diphtheria at the age of six, thirty years before I was born, because the vaccination which now makes it unknown in this country was not invented - I can see my own grandson in his face and mourn the person I never had an opportunity to know, who himself never had the opportunity to have a life. The little girl standing was my aunt who did grow up and married a man who had polio at the age of two and carried around a heavy brace and built up shoe on his withered leg for the rest of his life because there was no vaccination at the time. My own mother, the tot sitting on the right, was fortunate to have survived whooping cough but could just as easily been the second child lost by my grandparents to a disease that is now preventable, and I'm sure they lived in terror of losing that second child while she was ill; I'm told that my grandmother, who passed away when I was four, never really recovered from the loss of her first son and she must have constantly worried about her remaining children which included a second son born after the first had died.

These anti-vaccination people need to wake up. They may only be here today to make their stupid decisions because a parent, grandparent, or even they themselves lived thanks to vaccinations.

quasi, do you get a Flu shot every year.... and do you prefer that your grandchildren get everything on the list?

I don't get flu shots because I'm not in a high risk group but I do prefer my grandchildren (one 5 years old, the second due in early Sept.) receive doctor recommended immunizations as the likely benefits far outweigh the possible (and often imaginary) risks.

But Professor Jenny McCarthy says they're dangerous. Maybe those globes of hers are really two extra brains.
