    That would not be ok with me.
    No. It would be simply nice if they made them free.

    Look, I know people are on me about this but my kids are not vaccinated because of my ex-wife. Well, one has some vaccinations but since she almost died we stopped. My ex is paranoid about them now even though I know that she had an adverse reaction and it might not have even been the vaccine. I am in the process of taking her to Court led mediations and one of my agenda items is to get our girls vaccinated. There is no way in hell she will agree though. When I take them back to the states I am always a bit nervous...

Most spread it prior to even knowing the have it.
    Intentionally negligent.....is.... not immunizing your children.

    None of that is forced on a person... don't drive. Don't be a pilot or fly. Grow your own food. Don't work at a nuclear power plant.

    I almost put that I knew somebody would say that in brackets... no, it is not intentionally negligent.

    Of course it is, by definition it is.

    The conscious decision to fail to take proper care in doing something.

    There is almost no risk of side effects. They almost never happen.

    The same goes for vaccinations against infectious flue like H1N1 virus or the yearly flu vaccine. Why risk flu if you are already not well?

    When I was a child I had a reaction to my smallpox vaccination. I had a fever, and my arm was hot, red and swollen where the injection was given.

    My mom was concerned and my aunt told her she understood the concern but if I had contracted smallpox my whole body would have those very painful lumps all over it.

    My parents protected me by having me get that vaccine and the others available.

    When I had my 4 children they did not need the smallpox vaccination since smallpox was erraticated.
    But I made sure my children had all their vaccinations.

    And my grandchildren have/will get their vaccinations too.
    This discussion is not about smallpox. It is about the measles vaccine, which did not exist in the 1940's and 50's. Please re-read the OP and try to keep up.

    You have a very incomplete and inaccurate view of history.

    And btw, you may not still be immune.
    Inaccurate view of history? I lived during the era. I don't have to read science fiction on the Internet.
