FFS vaccinate your child!
Vaccines are a medical gift that save lives, there is zero scientific evidence correlating vaccines to autism or lower immune systems. When properly administered, vaccines protect your kids from dangerous & lethal diseases that we have been able to wipe out. Before vaccines, many children died from measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis, polio & many more. The now retracted & debunked study that was poorly conducted (only 12 kids were studied) where autism was linked to the MMR vaccine is NOT evidence. Neither is some random article on wehatevaccines.com, that stuff is made up by a creepy dude living in some isolated mountain with shingles. Unless a reputable medical institution, like the WHO, debunks vaccines, then you’re just spreading rumours & your beliefs are actually dangerous.
For all of you NOT vaccinating & saying your kid is fine, this is because you are enjoying herd immunity. Our kids & their evil vaccines are protecting yours from these diseases. You know who isn’t protecting other kids, the elderly and compromised immune patients? YOU aren’t by not vaccinating. Instead of preaching from your false soapbox, realize your actions are hurting others.
I also firmly advocate that unvaccinated children should not be attending public schools. This is a policy in first world countries because the health risks are that high. If you’re reading this & are ready to scream about your rights to not vaccinate, I support your ability to choose. I just don’t believe you have the right to live in a community that does practice health related safety protocols. You can make this choice, but then you are deciding to live outside the norm and should fully adopt this ideology. You do not get to pick and choose your health care decisions & not accept that you are endangering other kids, particularly those at risk.
Your son Iqbal has every right to not be vaccinated, but he does not have the right to expose Maryam who has a suppressed immune system due to cancer treatments or her newborn baby brother who hasn’t been vaccinated. Not vaccinating is not equitable to eating hormone free chicken. It is equitable to a ticking time bomb.
