  •  but shouldn't the topic be... (none)
    why are we so dependant on vacines for diseases that for all intents and purposes have been placed under control?

    is injecting an infant with a bit of the virus really the right thing to do, shouldn't this be the issue?

    everyone is in histerics over not getting a vaccine for some cured pandemic, when we should all be grateful to not get stuck with something we really don't need and which could end causing more problems than cures.

    the real questions are, who says we need vacines and why?


    •  that is absolutely the wrong question (none)
      childhood vaccines have been lifesavers. They've been a public health miracle, actually, and where they've been stopped (UK with pertussis), babies have died. Tetanus essentially doesn't exist in this country nor does polio thanks to vaccines.

      Take that issue up in a diary of your own, if you will.
