    Yes, But...

    Vaccines need to be cleaned up.  Take the poison out.  Why do they have to put mercury in them, and when they take the mercury out they replace it with aluminum....Toxic to adults.  Infants have smaller livers.

    There is a Measles outbreak in Maryland, USA right now.  One of the treating physicians went on the news and said, "This disease is 100% preventable if people are vaccinate and parents ensure their children are vaccinated."

    Dear anti-vaxers: I appreciate your desire to

    make decisions for your children without the intervention of the government. Have you considered the population which does not make informed decisions, but only does what they have to do, by law? They don't do what they believe is best for their child based on the information at...

    I hate when people don't vaccinate themselves

    and their children. I mean come on. It's enraging. First of all, you're endangering yourself and your children. But second, you're not only endangering yourself. You threaten the herd immunity. When the numbers of you grow high enough to screw up the proportion of immunized to...

    Vaccines are created

    so that children's immune systems are strengthened. Ever see what the measles does to an unprotected child? I have. If you can avoid it there's no doubt you should!!!

    Yes they should be. The vaccinations have shown

    to be effective against the diseases they are supposed to prevent; that's why cases of them resurfacing is cause for concern. There are two main phenomenon present when it comes to fears of a supposed "link" to autism: Anecdotal evidence and bad risk assessment. Not science...

    Important Resources

    Vaccinating your children should be one of those no-brain-er decisions unless there is a allergy to one of the ingredients within the vaccine.  Even then the benefit should be weighed against the risks.  I am no doctor just a mother.  I have included a...

    I read a comment from someone saying

    that she had never had a shot, and when She told her friends they freaked out. She then went on to say that their freak out wasn't needed, they were protected by the vaccinations, right? Yes, they are for the most part. But that doesn't mean they cannot get sick. And that doesn...

    One excuse I heard to not vaccinate your

    children is, "The diseases they vaccinate against are obscure." Well, DUH! Diseases they vaccinate against are obscure BECAUSE of vaccines.
