Shot Delays: Alternative Vaccine Schedules Mean Fewer San Diego Students Are Fully Immunized

To the people that call parents of un or under vaccinated kids irresponsible, or that call them a danger to society: if your kids are vaccinated and you wholeheartedly believe that they are protected by them, you have nothing to fear. To Dr. Fleischer, and everyone else too, please show us double blind studies analyzing acute and chronic health outcomes of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children. To all the adults here: when was the last time you've had your titers checked for all the vaccines that you were given as infants/children? Are YOU up to date with your booster shots? You could be as much of a danger to society as the unvaccinated or under vaccinated children, as you claim. Vaccinated people can still contract the disease that they were vaccinated against. With that being said, I believe that vaccines have a place in our society and health. But I don't trust the "experts" and follow whatever they say as a sheep. Why would you give a newborn the Hep B vaccine if the mother is Hep B negative and the infant is in no need of a transfusion? Makes absolutely no sense. Flu shots every year? Flu shots are not 100 % effective against all the strains floating around. You'll be covered for the 3 most common ones that "experts" think would be prevalent on the next flu season. However, they may not get the combination right every year, so you may still get the flu. Don't believe all the fear monguering either: most people that die of the flu are elderly and also people with compromised immune systems. This detailed data is never released. Chickenpox? I had it as a kid (and I'm sure most of you did too, as children). I was out for a week, and now I have life-long immunity. I can keep going. People that choose to not vaccinate, or delay vaccinations, are very, very informed. They do their homework and choose what they believe is best for their families.
In conclusion: I believe it's a must to have these double-blind studies that I mentioned above, and to provide alternative formulations of vaccines for people that have sensitivities or possible allergies to the ingredients. Right now there's none.
