Anti-vaxxers put all kids in danger
VACCINATIONS are a simple process.
You take your child in to the clinic, they’re given a couple of quick shots, and you take your child home healthy. Full stop.
In that short appointment, in those few minutes of crying because of the needle, you’ve protected your child, and every child around them from deadly diseases such as the measles or rubella.
Think back to the time before vaccines. In 1882, the most common diseases children suffered from were things like diphtheria, tuberculosis, cholera and scarlet fever.
Thanks to vaccines, these diseases are almost never seen in Western patients.
There’s no reason why you shouldn’t vaccinate your child. There is no link between vaccines and autism, and in fact vaccines are only given to children after a long and careful review by experts.
And vaccinating your child, doesn’t just protect your child. It protects your unborn grandchild and it protects those who are unable, medically, to be vaccinated themselves. So the question is: is it really your right to put other people’s lives at risk, or is it your responsibility to protect them?
