Measles is back, and it's because your kids aren't vaccinated
(visit the link for the full news article)
Measles...is making a comeback in the U.S., thanks to parents fears over vaccines. Fifteen children under 20, including four babies, have been hospitalized and 131 sickened by the red splotches since the beginning of this year....
The CDC had announced in 2000 that the disease was eliminated in the U.S. thanks to a vaccine that can completely control it. But fears of autism have led some parents to forego this treatment and at least 63 of the sickened children were unvaccinated.

We've lived for sometime where serious diseases have been controlled by childhood immunizations.

Here's a thought: instead of mandatory vaccinations for every child born, how about only vaccinating "high risk" areas? If there's an outbreak of some previously controlled disease, offer vaccines to those in the area.
Yes, vaccines CAN confer immunity but don't always. Why take the risk of injecting substances into our bodies if there's no need? If a need arises, offer the vaccines. Forcing human beings to inject foreign substances into their bodies, under protest, for questionable benefits and real potential harm is, to me, the ultimate sign that we are nothing more than cattle to TPTB. Expendable cattle, at that.

I work in a doctors office and I have given countless vaccinations over my 2 years here, and I have never ever seen or heard of a child that i have vaccinated to have autisum all of a sudden. I believe that parents should indeed get their children vaccinated.
2006 During National Infant Immunization week, statistics are released that show to date,
the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has paid $1.2 billion to
families who have proven that their children suffer permanent disabilities or have died
from a vaccine reaction. Less than 25 percent of families who apply through VICP ever
get compensated. Many more families never apply for compensation since they do not
recognize the symptoms of vaccine damage.
Mostly, the vaccine believers simply revert to "Well I remember the hospital wards full of polio victims... you don't see those now do you" - ergo, vaccines worked. Errm, well, you don't see wards full of scarlet fever victims anymore either, yet a vaccine for that terrible disease was never implemented.

A new and improved avian flu vaccine to combat pandemics has seen success in clinical trials.
Aug. 26 (Bloomberg)
Novavax Inc. said its experimental vaccine spurred an immune response in humans that can protect against a deadly strain of bird flu linked to more than 100 deaths.
In the study, 160 patients each received two injections, in doses ranging from 15 to 90 micrograms. At the highest dose, the vaccine produced a response against one version of the lethal H5N1 bird flu in 94 percent of patients, Novavax said in a statement today.

Amaterasu, I doubt your source. Could you possibly find a more reliable source that shows that vaccine ingredients include such things?
Just wondering because I checked the flu vaccine that is pretty common, Fluvirin
You're wrong, sorry. Do research and use decent sources.

Grady, getting the bird flu shot may not be optional.

I plan to vaccinate my children when I have them, however I am not giving them any vaccination that I didn't get, and I am going to read the ingredients list from the FDA to make sure there's no mercury used as a preservative. I also plan to space the vaccines out, rather than nailing them with a bunch of shots on one day.
I don't necessarily believe that the vaccines cause autism, but then I am also not sure that they don't. I just want to minimize, if I can, the crazy chemicals that go into the bodies of myself, my pets and my (future) kids. My husband is a nurse and has to get all kinds of vaccines as a work requirement. I don't like it, but as a member of that profession he is kind of screwed.
