Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
There are many examples in the surrounding comments. The highlights among them are.
Immunizations are not 100% effective
Babies at home too young to be vaccinated
Elderly at home that are more susceptible
People on immunosuppressants
On top of all that, there is no good reason to not immunize children. There was one study that showed a link between autism and vaccines and it was later found out that the study actually showed no link but the numbers were falsified to satisfy an agenda. Vaccines are very safe and effective at preventing disease. The rest of us shouldn't be put at extra risk because of stupid people.
Meaning, if you don't want to vaccinate your kids, that's your right, but you shouldn't be allowed to send them to school and spread the disease to other people. A few other posts near by gave examples.
Your freedom to get diseased ends at places where you are likely to spread it to others. Or, at least it should.
Just vaccinate your kids already. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfdZTZQvuCo&feature=related/
