I am so weary of the moaning and groaning about parents not having their kids get the measles vaccine…and that this is why the numbers are rising SO high in the last year or so. It is NOT.
WHY NOT MENTION MIGRATION AND THE FACT THAT THEY ARE BRINGING IN THESE DISEASES?
POLIO, TOO! “Children are not getting vaccinated for polio!” I don’t think less children last year were vaccinated than the last FIFTY years when we all lined up at school for our ‘vaccine laden’ sugar cubes we were happy to suck on, but while polio is still in small numbers, it’s rearing its ugly head again. WHY?
ARTICLES I FOUND INCLUDED:
“In the U.S., “the increase in AFM (much like POLIO) cases in 2014 coincided with a national outbreak of severe respiratory illness among people caused by enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). Among the people confirmed with AFM, CDC did not consistently detect EV-D68 in every patient,” the CDC said.” WHERE DID THIS COME FROM?! We know.
And, even MORE IMPORTANTLY:
“Poliomyelitis, largely conquered in the United States and other highly developed countries, is an important and perhaps increasing problem in areas of Africa, Asia and Latin America, a scientist of the World Health Organization said today.”
Stop with the GET VACCINATED! Yes, kids should, but let’s not believe polio and measles just popped out of nowhere because a tiny percentage of parents won’t vaccinate their kids….or at least, let’s be open to discussing the FACT that LATIN AMERICANS ARE BRINGING IN NOT ONLY MEASLES AND POLIO BUT TUBERCULOSIS…WHICH IS ALSO ON THE RISE.
Loved this one: “Concerns have been specifically raised about children, due to the risk of infections spreading in public schools. But the CDC currently believes that the children arriving at US borders “pose little risk of spreading infectious diseases to the general public.” Z: So, wait….concerns are raised but Mexican kids pose little risk…how? They have some kind of magic which prevents American kids from breathing their AIR? MAN.
IS IT NOT AT LEAST WORTH THE DISCUSSION TO ADMIT NOT ONLY VACCINATIONS ARE IMPORTANT BUT NOT LETTING MIGRANT CHILDREN NEAR OUR KIDS IS ALSO IMPORTANT? IS IT NOT WORTH THE DISCUSSION AND IS ‘KINDNESS’ AND LEFTWING AGENDA SO IMPORTANT WE’LL RISK OUR OWN CHILDREN?
