    Not common at all. As of 2013 there were only 145,700 deaths to measles. And it is one of the leading causes of death of young children.

    So tell me. Why would you not get a cheap vaccination that could save your child? And the lives of other people's children? There is only one reason: stupid.

    We didn't have anyone die from any diseases that we get vaccinated for growing up in the 80s and 90s. In fact I remember hearing about kids getting mumps, but not dying from them.

    And shingles doesn't really work like chicken pox, despite being the same virus. Shingles is only contagious through contact with the sores/bumps of an affected person, kind of like after getting the smallpox vaccine. The sore that develops is contagious which is why we had to keep ours covered til it went away and the band aids went into a special trash an.

    Wouldn't it be the fault of the parent to bring their infant around other people?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Plenty of kids die from measles. And to think, we nearly eradicated it here in the states, but some dingbat decided to be a dirty ass hippy and put people's lives at stake. You want to know something interesting? Nobody would die from measles if you just vaccinate until the damn thing is gone.

    Yea. God forbid they expect an infantile level of logic from other humans. Are you aware of how virus can be transmitted? That infant doesn't have to be "out in public."

    A dirty hippy doesn't vaccinate their infant. Infant gets measles. Dirty hippy doesn't bathe, touches another person, who touches another person, who touches someone who goes home and gives their kids the measles.

    Seriously. Give me one GOOD reason to not vaccinate. I've asked multiple times. I've heard nothing. Why wouldn't you vaccinate your kid?

    IMO, this mandatory crap has gone too far.

    I'm sure in a few years, chicken pox will be called a deadly disease.
    Evasion. You're still ignoring the complications of measles.

    Why are you unwilling to accept any responsibility for your hypothetical decision not to vaccinate yourself or your child?

    You're not. Nature is. People are at risk all the time, even infants and even from preventable things.
