Theres a lot of debate from many parents not to vaccinate there child/ren against diseases.
No parent likes seeing there child or baby given an injection especially when there little ones bottom lips starts to quiver but vaccination is important in protecting your child against serious even fatal diseases. Isnt it better that if your child does come into contact with say measles, mumps, chicken poxs, whopping cough, diphtheria,hepatitis A and B,meningococcal,polio,rubella just to name a few. With the shots the childs body can fight against these diseases.
If a child is not vaccinated they increases the risk of catching the illness and becoming extremely sick or could even die.
I myself would not even think of taking that chance. I did vaccinate both my kids.
If everyone did vaccinate there children maybe this would totally wipe out these diseases and we wouldnt need to vaccinate. Thats a nice thought hey.
I know there are some exceptions where the child/ren cant be vaccinated for medical reasons but Im talking about parents who choose not too vaccinate.


So if you have children or had children
Would you vaccinated????
If your answer is no Why????

please debate

Yes of course I would, for health reasons, the reasons not to vaccinate have been exaggerated and discredited. You'd be mad not to.

I had all my shots. All my kids had all their shots too. There is a risk with any thing, but I believe it is better to get the protection.

My kids have always gotten their needed shots.

Here in my province of Ontario(but I'm pretty sure...or would hope...all of Canada), your child cannot attend school unless you can show their vaccination record. You are given a few weeks to get them any needles that are required or an up-to-date print out of their vaccinations. If you don't, your child is suspended and cannot return until they have gotten them. This also applies to Nurseries for pre-school children.

If I was a father (since I'm not a father.... yet..) I would vaccinate my children. Not all at once, but they would be vaccinated.

The government pays for it. I guess, and the environmental choice becomes objective being to follow. Just must also afford a car. Obama isn't so bad.

Vaccinations are required here in the US. Your child cannot attend school without them. I think that is why most of those childhood diseases are rare among our population.

Glad someone agrees that he's not as bad as everyone claims. I try to tell people unless, you are in his position, you can't call him a bad president or anything. He's trying.

That's actually not true. You just have to have a waiver or something signed by a doctor that says they've talked with you about the risks of not having your children vaccinated. Then, if such an epidemic breaks out, that child must be kept at home.

Of course I would. I think it's bad if you don't. Wouldn't they be far more susceptible to getting diseases if they weren't inoculated?

People who decide not to vaccinate their children against the advice of a physician should be jailed.

Amen... Not getting them inoculated would be completely senseless.

Every state is different. In my state you can be exempt only if a physician states the vaccination will be detrimental to your child. You can also be exempt for religious reasons. But everyone else has to get vaccinated.
