    Yeah, I can understand concern about vaccinations, but the rabid anti-vaxxers can hold their heads high in the knowledge that heretofore virtually extinct illnesses are now making a comeback, and doing so with a vengeance.

      Is informed consent not important?
      These sicknesses are reappearing form 3rd world populations. Not just magically appearing in US citizens who aren’t vaccinated. There’s pretty decent evidence that the government is adding extra things into the vaccines, and the massive increase in the number of shots we now get…
      Vaccines are important, but they need to be transparent. The inserts themselves say the risks, and groups are trying to get the inserts banned. There is censorship of people who have been affected by bad vaccines. Suddenly getting the sickness, children developing disorders or almost dying right after. One size fits all is not how medicine works, same with fluoride in the water. There’s science involved, but nefarious groups are manipulating it.
      If you had your shots and they work, there’s nothing to worry about then right? Herd immunity only works if single immunity does.

      We can also thank those who shun science in favor of incoherent burbling from pretty idiots such as Jenny McCarthy.
