There is now a measles outbreak in New York. A whole ward of cancer patients currently undergoing chemotherapy have been exposed to it. Imagine fighting cancer for years only to die because some jackass didn’t vaccinate their brat and you caught measles.
STUPID FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT PARENTS
This is p important but could y’all calm down on the ‘blame the parents thing’ like yea without excessive background research on vaccines it’s p dang irresponsible to say no to them for your child but many people do, with or without this prerequisite.
I, personally, am not vaccinated- due to thorough research on part of my father- who is a doctor and who specialises in vaccination and who has devoted alot of time to vaccination research.
This is very important and it serves to evoke caution in those who are at risk of sharing or contracting measles.
Well I think it pretty clearly is the parents’ fault, because it’s mostly an issue when vaccinating (or not vaccinating) young children who don’t yet have the capacity to decide for themselves.
In your case, you’ve made an informed decision because of personal significant health issues and you have carefully measured the pros/cons of getting vaccinated. But most parents who choose not to get their children vaccinated do it because they believe vaccines are inherently harmful (or not beneficial) - not because they think it will be harmful to their child specifically.
So yeah, obviously, calling parents “pieces of shit” is harsh. But I think it was more an expression of anger and frustration. It super frustrates me too :K
i understand where you’re coming from. What I meant by ‘blame the parents’ is that theres this idealised notion that stubborn parents are to blame for every instance of an uncontrolled outbreak; and henceforth can be due to a number of variable reasons.
I believe that, instead of downright condemning parents for misinformation, there should be a pro-choice initiative that procures an unbiased understanding of the positive and negative sides of vaccination. I also believe that children should be allowed, by personal choice to undergo extensive healthcare to assess the risks involved with the individual and to what extent a vaccination could serve as a ‘tipping point’ for other physical and mental anomalies- such as, in the case of some people with over-exerted stress levels and a poor immunity threshold, damage to mental health; while autism is definitely not a direct result of vaccination, it can often serve as a tipping point for stress levels unto which leads into an autism spectrum disorder.
I believe that well based information should properly explored and offered to all parents- everywhere; not just as a western centralized apparatus. Furthermore, I believe vaccine and immunology studies should be rigorously funded and explored and tested before the general use of the public and the necessary steps should be taken to ensure that an uncontrolled circumstance is avoided- such as the growth of newfound ‘superviruses’- wherein the gene to which the immune system responds to as a result of vaccines is deleted from the virus and therefore it becomes undetectable.
Otherwise, I understand entirely as to why you are angry towards those who aren’t aware of the nature of immunology, but without adequate resources for information- such as a program provided by the government, parent’s are unable to find unbiased information and therefore make choices that don’t adequately reflect how they see vaccination and immunology.
