While media sells an irrational fear of the measles and causes parents to battle each other concerning vaccination, there are stories untold of MMR vaccine injuries and death.

What if more injuries & deaths occurred after receiving the measles vaccine than the number of reported natural measles deaths in the United States?

Are any vaccine injuries and/or deaths an acceptable price for our children to pay when measles deaths are so rare?

There have been zero measles deaths in the United States in the past decade. The death rate for measles in a first world country is 1 in 700,000. ...to put that in perspective, over 37,000 people in the US die in road crashes annually.

It is disturbing what some medical professionals and the media is doing to turn parents against each other and instill an irrational fear that results in many's willingness to sacrifice their own parental rights regarding their children’s healthcare.

Are dozens of children dying of the Measles in the US each year? NO, absolutely not. Will someone eventually pass away in the US of measles? Yes, and it will be tragic, BUT that life lost will be no more tragic than the conceivably dozens of children who die and hundreds, if not thousands who suffer injures from the MMR Vaccine annually.

The big-government vaccine program does not care about your child.
Parents love and care for their children. No one else has their best interest in mind like we do. Vaccinate if that’s your choice, but don't let mistruths, false statistics and media driven by pharmaceutical companies and even ignorance cause you to turn on the parents who choose to vaccinate differently.

Be cautioned against anything that’s would cause you to give up the freedom to make decisions for your children. Today's schedule is 49 doses by kindergarten. Many of today's parents received just 10-12 vaccines by high school. If they continue to add as they have, and we know they will...our children's children will be mandated 100+ doses by age 5.
Are you really okay with no flexibility in that?
I’m not.

You do have a choice. Homeschool.

I'm sure you are starting to see this here but the root of the problem isn't that all vaccines are bad for everyone but that the government has severely been compromised by monied interests, so much so that proper research, nuance, and medical freedom to discern for oneself can not be obtained.

Mississippi may be particularly backwards on this issue but as you can see by the maker of such vaccines being given blanket immunity with the government stuck with the bill for all awarded injuries the corruption goes all the way to the top.

The only way out of this mess is to take back out government. And the only way this can be done besides people waking up out of their apathy is to separate outside influencing money from state. All corporate lobbying should be banned along with riders/pork barrel politics, citizens united overturned, and all elections equally funded by the state.

If more parents refuse vaccination, what will we do about the kids who will suffer encephalitis, ITP, SSPE and death from wild measles infection? The vaccine is a weakened virus that does carry risks like ITP for some kids. It is very important to be able to identify kids who are at risk for these kinds of reactions.

It is also very important to make sure that the community as a whole has immunity to wild measles infection, by vaccination, in order to prevent the even greater risks posed to larger numbers of kids by measles. How do you suggest we balance these concerns?
