Violent intimidating neighbors
But while they mean “Read all these websites that support our position”, I suggest you should learn what the scientific community says. Go read about the history of disease before vaccines, and talk to older people who grew up when polio, measles, and other diseases couldn’t be prevented.
Go read about how vaccines are developed, and how they work.
None of these things are true, but they are the reflexive response by the anti-vaccine activists because they have no facts to back up their position.
On some level, deep down, they must understand this, and are afraid of the implications, so they attack the messenger. Some are doing it for profit, trying to sell their alternative remedies by making you afraid of science-based medicine.
You owe it to your children, and to yourself, to thoroughly investigate the issue.
They say that whooping cough isn’t so bad for kids to get. They say that vaccines aren’t that effective at preventing disease.People who choose not to vaccinate their children against infectious diseases are putting not only their own children at risk, but also other people’s children.They say that ‘natural’, ‘alternative’ remedies are better than science-based medicine. The truth is that vaccines are one of our greatest public health achievements, and one of the most important things you can do to protect your child.Worse, there are some people who can’t receive vaccinations, because they are immune deficient, or because they are allergic to some component.Those people depend upon herd immunity to protect them.
