Are there really that many people that are anti-vaccinations? I just love America.
@JakobJeanCiccone, retards, retards everywhere.
@JakobJeanCiccone, No, but the ones who are are really freakin loud about it
@JakobJeanCiccone, were there really that many people in America danger of Ebola?
@JakobJeanCiccone, the stupid usually happen to be the most obnoxious. That's why the rest of the world thinks were stupid fat and obnoxious *glares at hillbillies*
@InfiniteDoors, hopefully they'll be dead soon *joke*
@JakobJeanCiccone, There are actually several (small, albeit loud) groups across many developed countries like the United States, Australia, Canada, and the UK. Perhaps the united states is more known because we recently had the measles outbreak at Disney, but it's a global trend among highly developed countries. It's a shame really.
@JakobJeanCiccone, the vocal minority led by a highly esteemed doctor in the field, Dr Jenny McCarthy
@JakobJeanCiccone, I mean, there won't be many for long
@InfiniteDoors, I'm not loud about it! They are really bad for you though! ....damnit.
@Proactive Citizenry , that shouldn't be a joke. It would honestly be better overall if the anti-vaccine idiots died, because they keep diseases alive, which can mutate, and infect vaccinated people. They could literally cause every human on earth to die. (It is extremely unlikely, but still technically possible)
@JakobJeanCiccone, alright, I have an argument here.
When I was born, my parents chose not to vaccinate me with ALL of the vaccinations normally given, because they believe a child should not be exposed to that powerful medicine at such an early age. Sounds like a logical argument from a registered Doctor, which my father is. Now, since then I have had 1 flu shot, and for about a week after I was absolutely miserable and felt so sick, but I got this shot so I can go do Clinical Rotations at my local hospital.
Many doctors I speak to do defend vaccines, because they are a medical solution to boost immune systems and create herd immunity. The idea of herd immunity is that if so many people are healthy and vaccinated, they can't carry the ailments that people who aren't vaccinated could get, therefore improving the general population as a whole.
I learn from both sides, and side with not giving all shots at birth, instead giving ones the child really needs, for the area you live in.
I still don't understand why this is a debate.
@Tyler The Curator, because people don't want to admit they were wrong.
@The Megaton Bomb, because people like arguing no matter how stupid it makes them
@Tyler The Curator, it's not really a debate, I don't know any anti vaccination advocates, it's just they get publicity and the public likes to berate them on the Internet, giving people the perception that it's a real opinion.
@Tyler The Curator, Chris Christie is an anti vaxxer and he thinks he's going to be president of the free world.
"How could you! You will have Autism now"
@Sassy Sheep, autism powers – international meme of measly
Vaccinations are wrong that's an innocent life there killing
@y0u, I have no idea what this statement is supposed to mean... I am unsure if it is satirical or plain out serious please elaborate...
I'd just like to say that as someone who is autistic, I do not believe in this at all and if it was I'd believe that the common cold would give it you too. If you are and don't like being, you are you and you were before you even knew, a word that a doctor says doesn't change who you are and being different doesn't either
@NoTimeToExplain, it also doesn't mean that we all are people who cannot comprehend things and are basically mentally challenged, because for some reason people think that's what autism is
Well there are people who hold an opinion that you shouldn't have to be vaccinated, which I don't see why people piss their pants over it, and people, like myself, who can't be vaccinated due to a higher likelihood of adverse effects. Two members of my family have been vaccinated and both have had adverse reactions to it that they now have to live with the rest of their lives. Multiple doctors have told my family to not vaccinate. Yes, people do take it over the top with the autism argument, but that's not to say that people have no risk factors to consider when deciding whether or not to vaccinate. I don't mean this message in a "Fvck vaccines they're bad for your health!" way because I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion whether everyone agrees with it or not. I'm just asking that people take into consideration that we're all human, if someone is taking the risk of not vaccinating by choice, let them take that risk without being told how stupid they are.
@Zephyr48, when you don't get vaccinated you're putting other people at risk of getting the disease. I don't want to catch measles because some a hole didn't get vaccinated.
@Foxythepiratefox, Meh, I've done the research and when you need 100% compliance in order for someone to be immune when it used to be 70% then I just feel like something isn't working. That's just my two cents though. I would like to hear a reason that is actually of some merit rather than everyone's response of "you're putting me at risk you selfish punk" which is the definition of irony. I know that's not what you mean, but it's how it sounds most of the time. *awaits shower of downvotes*
@Zephyr48, shower? How about waterfall?
@DeadStroke, sure, whatever people are willing to give really
@Zephyr48, ok so to get started with vaccines they can have adverse affects towards ones health, it all depends on physical conditions such as the one I can't remember that lowers the white blood cell count. If you have a condition that causes your body to have trouble fighting the vaccine that's ok. But what @deadstrike meant was that your statement "if someone is taking the risk of not vaccinating... How stupid they are" is completely irresponsible because they are perfectly normal humans who can have the vaccine but choose to put others at risk, you did not choose not to you just can't there is a huge difference. As well it is approximately 99% compliance of the population to eradicate a disease. Which means we need all the able bodies to fight against sickness not be its carrying pigeon. Sorry for the long post and this was not to offend you it's purely to connect the two comments in a more detailed and less hostile manner.
@JetandJag, I appreciate the non-hostile response. I think part of my issue is not the vaccines themselves, but the people who defend them most of the time. Most conversations I have with people hardly ever help me understand anything because all some people hear is "Vaccines cause autism" as if I never mentioned I can't be vaccinated, then I'm assumed a monster. I don't care if people disagree with those who actually choose to not vaccinate, but I would like to see some compassion or at least less aggression towards those people. Some people act like they just bombed a kindergarten rather than just made a choice as a human with free will and it does get aggravating at times. Again, I appreciate the non-hostile explaination.
In her defense, penicillin works too.
@Multiple personality, haven't you heard? Penicillin gives your father's cousin's best friend's roommate's niece AIDS.
@Iron Vader, what kind of aids?
@Multiple personality, super AIDS.
Is everything cell shaded in the future? I thought everything would be chrome
Future rebellion??? I umm doubt that
That's isn't such a bad idea. If teens in the future think that vaccines are the same as sex then teen pregnancies will go down and so will cases of harmful diseases.
If that's the future, I don't wanna live on this earth anymore. *insert Futurama meme*
I don't get it.
But now you'll get super dyslexiautism!!!
