C'mon - this is a terrible example. I have a strong dislike for vaccinations in general, and especially the ones for STDs, but this news story is no kind of hill to die on.
The mother was positive for Hep B, did y'all read that part? It's not some government conspiracy, it's an attempt to keep this stupid slag from ruining her child's life.
If the mother has an STD, when she gives birth there's a serious risk of transmission. I have a month-old baby, and she hasn't been vaccinated for anything. Know why? Because her mother and I didn't get all crudded up with STDs. How easy is that?
That baby did NOTHING to deserve that.
And yeah, parents are the guardians of their childrens' health, I agree with that, and if they don't want the vaccine, I agree with their decision - but to get on the soapbox and defend the parents for being ignorant and unecessarily paranoid at the expense of their child's life, well that's just not well-advised.
Talk about picking your battles...
Mercury was REMOVED from ALL vaccines in 1999 and thus why are kids still getting it?
I believe that's a lie, do you have a source for that information?
Some varieties of influenza vaccine almost certainly still contain mercury.

In 1999, on the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatrics and U.S. Public Health Service, thimerosal was removed from most childhood vaccines as a "precautionary" measure - i.e. without admitting to any causal link between thimerosal and autism.

...Hep B is nasty, nasty disease and so easy transmitable it is scary.
Last Saturday, six of the eight were given Tuberculosis and hepatitis-B vaccines while two were only given the TB vaccine. After some 15 minutes, all eight suffered respiratory failures.
Details on the vaccines, including the names, manufacturers and batch numbers, have yet to be disclosed.
A man from the Mekong Delta province of Tien Giang has filed a suit against a local health center he has accused of paralyzing his eight-year-old daughter with a vaccine.
A man in the southern province of Hau Giang has sued a local health agency and vaccine maker, claiming a vaccine paralyzed him last year.
Deputy Health Minister Cao Minh Quang signed a document suspending the use of hepatitis B vaccines involved in the deaths of two babies – one in Thua Thien-Hue last week and one in Hanoi last January.
A woman has sued a Ho Chi Minh City health center for VND110 million (US$6,875) for paralyzing her 27-year-old husband by giving him a rabies vaccine.
Health centers in southern Vietnam were instructed Friday to stop using BCG, a locally made tuberculosis vaccine, following an infant’s death in Dong Nai province Wednesday.
A four-month-old child in Vietnam Saturday died 15 hours after being vaccinated with a domestically-produced Hepatitis B vaccine, after three died earlier from Korean vaccines.

No, the common cold is "so easy transmitable it is scary". If Hep B was so easily transmitted, almost everyone would already have it.
Mother to child transmission occurs often, either in utero or through exposure to blood or blood contaminated fluids at or around birth. Such perinatal transmission is believed to account for 35% to 50% of hepatitis B carriers. The risk of perinatal transmission is associated with the hepatitis B e antigen status of the mother. If a mother is positive for both hepatitis B surface antigen and e antigen, 70% to 90% of her children become chronically infected

Loam - I guess the vaccines are working out just fine for you, the mercury having done it's job.

If it is to protect the child they should do it... I don't agree that it should be forced on them though. I made a choice to have my son vaccinated after research and talking to the doctor, I was concerned about the mercury... the clinic I go to dosen't use mercury shots... they had a pamphlet and I talked to a doctor I trust and a friend who works their.

If the kid does not get the vaccine he WILL die of liver disease within a matter of years. He probably wont make it to his 5th birthday.

You are right, thimerisol (mercury) was removed from virtually all vaccines (except the flu vaccine) a while ago.
