    I agree 100%. Everyone in my family was in the last polio epidemic in Chicago before the vaccination was legal – and everyone got it 10 days or so before the vaccination was public. Not a good scene.

    Maybe we should support some team called The Vaxxers – you know, yay! Go Vaxxers! Boo Anti-Vaxxers!

      Thanks Naomi.

      I like how someone has now coined the phrase “Disease Enthusiasts” lol.

      I really feel terrible for the poor kids put in the middle of this…I hope they don’t come to any true harm.

        It’s heartbreaking when they do. In this day and age, we do not have the death rates of our parents and grandparents – young and old – nor the diseases of our own pre-vaccination childhoods. At least we had anaesthesia for dental work when we were kids . . . 😉

      Yes—1 yr of age, and 4-6 yrs. Sometimes the Medical Officer will also recommend a booster if there has been a significant outbreak, or if immunization status Is undocumented or indeterminate.
