    “I never got to really suffer as a kid!”

    “Yeah, that’s actually an okay thing for kids to not have to do – but again, just a doctor, your kid your call…”

      “Your kid, your call” – not when it comes to helping to spread highly contagious diseases that can have serious effects on some unlucky recipients, no it is not.

      1. his boogness says:

        Agreed – helping to spread highly contagious diseases is everyone’s job.

    I wasn’t sheltered as a kid, but I did get my vaccinations. My kid has the same, though is a bit more sheltered, but I want to let him do more.

    Only in America. In the UK, children can be put into safer hands if their parents are ignorant enough to refuse vaccination.

      Well except for that time recently where Wales had a Measles epidemic and ran out of vaccinations because everyone realised how daft it all was 😛 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_Swansea_measles_epidemic

    I never got to swim in shark infested waters with slabs of meat strapped to my arse when I was a kid.

    I never had measles, but I had mumps, which is covered by the same MMR vaccine. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. My lymph glands were so swollen that taking a tiny sip of water was excruciatingly painful. I lived on nothing but warm broth for about two weeks.

  6. Arabesque says:

    I got my vaccines when I was a kid, and with all the news of the anti-vaxxers appearing, and my parents beginning to agree with them, I’m sure as heck glad I got my vaccines before all of this idiotic anti-vaxxer bs showed up.

  7. Raza says:

    The funny thing is that the parents holding ‘measles parties’ are doing the exact same thing as vaccinating their kids, except in a much more dangerous way. They accept the science behind acquired immunity, but just fear the scientists.

  8. WitUnderPressure says:

    kinda reminds me of Ned Flanders’s parents:

    “We tried nothin’ and we’re all outta ideas, man!”

  9. Falos says:

    Every business, store, office, school, library, hospital, restaurant, etc. will also get a final word. About signs that say NO LEPERS and refuse to let your kid in.

    Gotta respect their choice, and all that.
