If my kid can't bring a peanut butter sandwich to school because it might hurt somebody you shouldn't bring your unvaccinated child to school because they might hurt everybody
@Sexy Homunculus, haha Yes. I believe that is the point of the image.
@Sexy Homunculus, but do nuts cause autism (I don't believe that it's just a joke I don't wanna die)
@Siska the Khajit, yknow, commas really help here. I read that as "I don't believe that it's a joke" meaning you were being serious. But the "I don't wanna die" would not make any grammatical sense, so I was able to figure out the actual meaning.
@Sexy Homunculus, hear hear!
@Ostrava of Boletaria, oh yeah sorry, I wasn't paying much attention as i was writing it. Thanks though
@Sexy Homunculus, Im not sure if that logic works, if your child is vaccinated then a different sick child won't affect your child.
@Factory BOY, some children can't be vaccinated because of allergy or auto-immune diseases. So not vaccinating your children puts those in danger. Also, some vaccines have age restrictions, so babies and the elderly are also at risk. Sorry, that was long, but I hope informative!
@Ostrava of Boletaria, if it's two independent clauses connected without a conjunction a semicolon should be used, not a comma.
@Factory BOY, look up herd effect immunity, vaccines only work because most people take them
@yourleftnut, Oh that reminds me, I need to vote
@yourleftnut, HA! GOT EEEM!
If your child died because of a peanut allergy that's natural selection. If you don't get you child vaccinated, your a fücking idiot mate.
@Jake The Legend, this isn't the fvcking jungle
@Doctor Walrus, it's a shame it's not because we wouldn't have any of these problems
@Jake The Legend, oh yeah. Horray for natural selection!
@Doctor Walrus, Honestly yeah. Natural selection is specifically about weeding out the unneeded/undesirable traits in species,so yes, hooray natural selection
@Jake The Legend, wounding that be natural selection too?
@iOS10, you could say it is but if we can eradicate a deadly disease by just getting a needle it'd be fair enough if we died for not doing it if you get my point
@iOS10, like if we have the choice to do something we should
But those are mixed nuts...
If your kid is vaccinated then that kid won't make a difference on them. Isn't that the point? (I assume there's an answer to this, but I've never heard it)
@TomPholio, Well for starters, someone who is infected serves as a breeding ground for the disease, increases the exposure to the disease for the vaccinated kids. Additionally anyone who might not have gotten the vaccination but were relying on herd immunity to protect them, say they were allergic to the vaccination, might become infected, further increasing exposure. Eventually the mass exposure can overwhelm even the strongest immune systems. If the first person didn't get infected then there wouldn't have been a breakout, and if they had been vaccinated they might not have gotten infected. Remember being vaccinated doesn't mean you're 100% immune, it just means your resistance is increased. Being able to lift 300 pounds once, doesn't mean you can carry 300 pounds down a football field.
If your kid has been vaccinated then you have nothing to worry about... Your kid is protected. Unless you believe vaccinations don't work?
@SevenX, look up herd immunity
Vaccines actually could be bad, but we could have kids ingest the smallest of doses of things to build up am immunity to it like that one Roman emperor who ingest small doses of poison to grow an immunity to it, which worked. In other words, the human body can adapt to certain things.
Sooo... If you get your child vaccinated, how would you get the illness from an unvaccinated child?
@RogueKnight, A vaccination doesnt mean youre immune to all disease ever. It just gives your body the know how on the antibodies needed to fight the disease which also helps detect it in the body. But if a kid with full blown measles starts coughing into your kids mouth thats a lot to deal with on the immune system side of things. Many diseases such as measles can surpass your immune systems ability to fight it off. But if its just one bit of it, your body has the antibodies from the vaccination to kill it off. So with a vaccination you wont catch it in day to day life, but going to the CDC and breathing in test tubes (or in this case being around a highly infective kid) will still get you sick
Thats a lot of nuts!
