Are you concerned about children who are under-vaccinated according to the CDC schedule attending school with children who are fully vaccinated? If so, please consider this.
Below is the list of childhood vaccines given in 1983, before the government decided to protect drug companies and doctors from liability for death or injury due to vaccines. See National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act . Both drug companies and health care providers involved in the vaccination of a child cannot be held financially accountable in a civil court of law for death or injury due to vaccination even if there is a product defect or negligence involved.
The list in the second column is the CDC schedule of vaccines children receive in 2015, and that continues to expand with no end in sight. Click the image to view full sized:
Think about it. For almost four decades vaccine manufacturers have enjoyed both government mandates that guarantee the uptake of their products, as well as a cocoon of protection from liability unique only to the vaccine industry.
How many of these vaccines have most adults had?
How many adults are adequately boostered every two years? Five years? Ten years?
When was your last pertussis booster or your child's teacher's last pertussis booster?
What about the lady at the checkout in Walmart?
In fact, the pertussis vaccine is effective for only 2 years. Chicken Pox and others also need frequent boosters in order to provide any possibility of protection.
If we as adults want to require others to risk hyper-vaccinating their vulnerable infants and children, then is it not only fair that we roll up our sleeves to the same as well? Is it morally responsible to expect our most vulnerable little ones to bear the load of protecting the "greater good"?
As for the model of herd immunity, clearly the majority of the population is walking around largely un-vaccinated for most everything we are mandating children be vaccinated for.
Herd immunity is pure marketing by corrupt big pharmaceutical companies to create fear and urgency among parents to require ALL children to be vaccinated for everything on the schedule, regardless of how large the schedule becomes.
If the adult population isn't being boostered every two, five, or ten years for most if not all these diseases, then the herd immunity model sinks like the Titanic.
It is a false notion to believe that only vaccinating little ones creates herd immunity. Ask any cattle farmer.
