Nope, no hard feelings. I can see the virtue in your position. I understand the potential tragedy that could come from an irrational fear of vaccination...
I just hope you can see the potential tragedy that could come from an irrational faith and trust in govt and/or Big Pharma... if not today, then one day... and the sooner the better.
We need to find the proper balance.

I'm assuming too much about what, exactly? Please be specific so that I can respond more directly.
Tetanus isn't communicable wide-range. Immunization is a personal precaution intended to keep individuals safe.
Then you jump to "does a three month old need an HPV shot?" and pretend that's just the same as you running the risk of tetanus.
The two examples you wish to present as equal are not similar in the least.
Further, you invoke "due diligence" as if the matter is still up for consideration, that there are additional facts that need to be considered.
Where have I demonstrated (or where has anyone else demonstrated) a lack of respect for people. Having respect for people doesn't include not telling them the truth, or allowing anyone to endanger society as blatantly as going un-immunized would.
In fact, standing up against such nonsense is a matter of the highest concern and care for people.

What's with the recent tend of anti vaxxers pretending to be pro-vaccination, just "concerned" and "just asking questions"? At least have the honesty and strength of character to stand by your convictions, even if they are wrong.
" I'm not anti vaccine, I just parrot the anti vaccine talking points and steadfastly refused to accept information from anything other than anti vaxxer sources ".
