i think people on both sides should watch this documentary Frontline: The Vaccine War.. its on netflix at the moment. It traces a case of whooping cough that errupted in the southern states and ended up infecting hundreds of people, and costing thousands (if not in the millions, can't remember) of dollars to get rid of that outbreak.

What I don't think "anti vac" people get is that vaccinations rely on herd immunity, in that we need to hit a certain % for it to protect against those who can not get these vaccines. IE the sick, the elderly, and the very young, etc. So if you don't get one, its not just yourself or your family you are affecting...
Stuck in Edmonton until my degree is done, which sucks. Cheering for the flames in Edmonton, oh so much fun!
