I’ve been meaning to write a post about having your children vaccinated. I took Cayden to get his latest vaccinations awhile ago and he was a boss! Watched the woman and everything.
There is still people out there that don’t believe in vaccinating their children which I find unsettling, even a Father had to go to court due to his partner not believing in immunisation. However he won, the kids vaccinated and now will be safer than those that aren’t.
The one that got me though was one that a friend shared on Facebook linking to this Mamamia article. It originates from tumblr with this post:
Then, an immunologist saw the post, and responded.
Then, the final punch…
Then they shut it down, the anti-vaccinators lost, and science prevails. However, not before one final post on tumblr.
So there you have it. You should vaccinate your kids, otherwise they could become extremely sick, or even worse, die from completely preventable diseases.
By not vaccinating your children, you’re not only hurting your children, but reducing the herd immunity, therefore putting children that are too young to be vaccinated at risk, those that are immunocompromised, and those that are allergic to a component of the vaccine.
