Comments on: More than measles: The threat to America’s ‘herd immunity’ http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/02/24/more-than-measles-a-threat-to-americas-herd-immunity-that-comes-from-within/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: aeci http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/02/24/more-than-measles-a-threat-to-americas-herd-immunity-that-comes-from-within/#comment-305432 Wed, 25 Feb 2015 18:16:28 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=38221#comment-305432 If a child is vaccinated, my understanding is that they are immune to that particular disease. If that is the case, then the children who are at risk are those who have not been vaccinated, which is according to this article, the choice of the parents.

So, what’s the deal? This article wants to make the decision for the parents. Why? It is only they who bare the risk. Big Brother … Big Medicine … Big Pharma. Doctors should only advise. Not enforce.

A parent’s willful ignorance should not be suffered by the child.

Do the world’s best public health and medical experts believe that cannabis is a schedule 1 drug. Do the world’s best public health and medical experts think that spending 80% of our medical resources on the last 2 months of peoples lives is ethical. I am just checking to see if you are just another greedy corporate doctor who doesn’t really care about the truth.

On the other side if your kids are vaccinated then whats your worry then?
