If you are against vaccinations, you are an immediate threat to public health

There is no evidence that vaccines cause autism. None. Not at all. There should be no opting out. Vaccines should not only be 100% provided free of charge by the government, but also required by law without personal belief waivers. You are not entitled to your own facts and you are not entitled to jeopardize the health of others because you can't or won't understand the science behind herd immunity.

Here are some excerpts from Phil Plait's awesome article.

Quote:
Let me be very, very clear: they are wrong. Vaccines save lives. Vaccines save millions of lives. And not just directly, like they did by wiping out smallpox, a scourge that killed hundreds of millions of people. But also, through herd immunity, vaccines save infants too young to be vaccinated, the elderly with weak immune systems, and people whose immune systems are compromised due to chemotherapy, genetic issues, or because they are taking immunosuppressants for other illnesses (like arthritis).

Vaccines don’t cause autism. Vaccines don’t contain dangerous levels of mercury. Vaccines don’t contain fetal tissue. Each of these – and many, many more — is misinformation spread by antivaxxers, statements that are easily proven wrong (like, in order, here, here, and here). But many antivaxxers continue to use them.

Quote:
Talk to your board-certified doctor about vaccines. Find out what you might need — being an adult doesn’t mean you’re exempt from childhood vaccines; you may need a booster — and if your doctor approves, then do what needs to be done.

The solution against the antivaxxers is to make sure their misinformation is countered by facts. It’s one of life’s great ironies that vaccines have helped these people live as long as they have to spread their nonsense about vaccines. We can speak up to stop them… and at the same time get vaccinated to make sure that they — that everyone – gets a chance to be wrong for a long, long time.

Nice title for your thread. Do you understand what the word "immediate" means?

As it's worded, your title is false and/or misleading.

I'd discuss it further, but if I were to waver from your own beliefs in the slightest, you'd dismiss offhand everything that I printed, so there's no point.

Well in his favor. If you refused to be vaccinated are in jeopardy of becoming a carrier of disease you're pretty much immediately a threat by your potential.

Not only that, providing support for and legitimacy to the anti-vaccination movement influences parents to not vaccinate (of the initial or booster variety) their children. The current lack of herd immunity that is starting to exist now thanks to these fucking gullible idiots does pose an immediate threat to public health. Yes, immediate, KOHS. There are few issues that are so clear cut.

Not immediate? http://jennymccarthybodycount.com/ There you'll find fully cited figures demonstrating the immediate threat the anti-vaccination movement poses. What's even worse is Jenny McCarthy plans to use her platform on Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve to push her abhorrently reckless, ignorant agenda.

None?

A quick search revealed that its not quite as straightforward as you have made out.

Quote:
ABSTRACT

Autism could result from more than one cause, with different manifestations in different individuals that share common symptoms. Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis following vaccination.

Journal of Immunotoxicology, 2011; 8(1): 6879 (small .pdf file)

The study is not saying that "vaccines will cause autism", which is unrealistic. But it notes that there is a link, and therefore a risk.

Now show that the risk comes even close to the personal and public health risk of not being vaccinated. You're taking a risk every time you go to the doctor. So what? You're being irresponsible if you're suggesting we should have the right to avoid vaccination to avoid risk, as avoiding vaccination increases risk immensely. Risk to society as a whole in addition to risk to the individual.

If there is a peer reviewed rebuttal to the link I posted above, lets see it. If so, fair enough.

You made a blanket statement. I was just pointing out that the issue may not be quite as cut n' dried as those you have linked to claim. My own opinions are moot, as I am not qualified in immunology/toxicology/etc

That study not only rehashed many of the previously debunked assumptions but also failed to establish any sort of causative link. It even begs the question that encephalitis causes autism in an attempt to pin vaccines as the ultimate culprits. The antivaccine crowd has leapt on that paper and has pushed any criticism of it off the first several pages of search results.

He mandated HPV vaccine. HPV is only spread through genital contact (including genital-oral contact). He mandated it for 12 year old girls. You're comparing this to mandating MMR vaccine or the like? Really?

You innoculate 3 month-old babies for MMR. It's not like they're going to get Rubella at 3. It's to protect them for LATER, when they are exposed.

The age of 12 is chosen so that the entire 2 or 3-shot vaccine course is completed before (hopefully) there is the possibility that the girls might become sexually active, which is far less likely before they have gone through puberty.

You didn't really think this through, did you? Typical.

Are you saying this doesn't happen?

The world for kids now days is far different than it was for myself and I'd be willing to bet for you also! Both my girls are pretty well grown now ( they'll be 19 and 21 this year ) and as it turns out made smart choices for themselves in this area but some of the things they saw their peers doing in school is pretty shocking. As a teacher you must know this.

The HPV vaccine prevents many cervical, penile, anal, and throat cancers. The conservatives can't get sex off the brain long enough to see how beneficial it would be to vaccinate everyone and prevent plenty of cancer.

That's authoritarian. Can you name any circumstance where if too many people in society make an alternative or perhaps wrong choice, that society doesn't suffer overall from it? If you can't then you've no right to demand everyone yield to your claim. The numbers of people refusing vaccines must become significant before societal risk goes up.

This is a terrifying endorsement of a complete and total police state. Given your beliefs though, I can't say they aren't surprising. What else should society do to those who raise the risk factors? Put them in camps? Gas them? You've got the break a few eggs to make your scientifically socialist omelet you know.

If by many you mean not many at all then I suppose you could be right. 4,000 women will die from cervical cancer out of 150 million plus women in the United States and that is also out of almost 2.5 million deaths per year.

That is called a radical inability to understand numbers and gain perspective from them. You advocate a police state to save 4,000 people.

68,504 will die of diabetes. I demand to control every bit of food that goes into your mouth for the good of society. You don't get to opt out or have any say in the matter.
78,889 will die of Alzheimer's disease. Perhaps we should shoot them before they take too many resources or harm someone else.
30,444 will die of liver disease almost exclusively cirrhosis relate to alcohol intake. Don't dare touch a drug or drink or you should arrested, charged with societal harm and we have to protect you from yourself.

You're not entitled to your own facts or apparently your own rights. Shut up and yield them now for the good of society. Don't demand we listen to your narrow worldview, your selective ignorance or well, even your voice because we know what is best for you and will protect you from yourself.

With some disease that can be no time at all. And also how many individuals have to get sick before it gets bad ( remember we're talking about the " individual " ).

People can have their own rights of the individual as long as they don't threaten or affect the rights and health of others. This is why vacinnations should be inforced. By making your personal choice you are affecting others and their choice to stay healthy. This a perfect example of why you can't expect people to always do the right thing.

Thank God you're not in charge.

As I noted the number related to HPV is astoundingly small.

Sorry but the rights are inalienable. The government must have a truly compelling reason.

Almost every personal choice affects others. People who do not continue their education affect their earnings and thus society. No man is an island and by your reasoning that means no man is entitled to any rights.

Yes because I'd let the 4,000 take their chances and you'd kill millions to get utopia.

WTF are you talking about? Approximately 50% of sexually active adults are infected with HPV at some point in their lives. With proper administration of the vaccine, that can become close to zero. Almost all cases of cervical cancer are caused by HPV infection, and there are a quarter of a million women who DIE from cervical cancer each year, as recently as 2008. Even if half those cases are avoided, we're saving more than a hundred thousand women each year if there is a properly administered worldwide vaccine program. The number is not "astoundingly small". That is a blatant lie.

This is a problem that can easily be solved if not for the ignorant or selfish or "individual rights are more important than the overall benefit to society" idiots.

I've thought it through...and it's not appropriate to mandate this type of vaccine just because a kid MIGHT become sexually active. It's different from a potentially airborne/communicable disease.

Of course I do. That doesn't mean I support mandatory HPV vaccine. And in the case of Perry, he did it by executive order. I'm surprised you support this.

All my numbers are from the CDC. Where are your numbers from? You should probably do be polite and ask people about their info before just calling them liars. I guess the desperate need to feel morally superior and grab rights doesn't permit such courtesy though.

Nice, except the CDC source you quoted is for the US. I was talking about deaths worldwide, and why the hell shouldn't I have been? This is a worldwide problem, and we don't live in perfect isolation, though some right wingers seem to think we do.

Clearly all the figures I was quoting were for the U.S. Where do you get off calling me a liar with regard to my figures? As for deaths worldwide, 80% of the problem is taken care of with regular pap smears. Where do you get off literally dictating to the world what they must do? The vaccine still doesn't stop the cancer, it just stops 70% of the most common strains that currently cause 90% of the cancer. Just like most things though who wants to bet that with those strains temporarily reduced, the others end up coming on even faster.

What else causes cervical cancer? Smoking. Should we completely outlaw it? Multiple sex partners? Should we ban sex outside of some sanctioned relationship? HIV should we ban any activities or lifestyles that lead to an increase in this as well? Approximately 80% of cervical cancers occur in developing countries because medical care be it for cervical cancer or even mundane things is not available and the mortality rate is much higher for everything as a result. There is no reason for women in the United States to lose their freedoms because of lack of treatment in other parts of the world.

Next time you are advocating for a one world authoritarian government that does whatever they want with women's bodies, make sure you are clear on that point. I apologize for assuming you only wanted to subjugate 300 million people instead of 6.5 billion.

I live in a global society. So do you. When the Polio vaccine was introduced, it was introduced globally, and it saved lives. Of course the HPV vaccine should be introduced globally. Americans do not live in isolation, and our solutions cannot be administered in isolation, as they would have no effect.

I do not wish to subjugate. I wish to help people. The HPV vaccine helps people.

I think if someone has a contagious disease they should be quarantined. Individual rights do not apply in that case because they are threatening other people's right to life.

But as for forcing everyone to get immunised before they have the disease, I'm not so sure about that. It would be one thing if their refusal endangered you, but it doesn't, because you yourself can just say yes to the immunisation, and then their decision either way is not a threat to you.

And even though I think this business about a link between autism and vaccines is probably just a conspiracy theory, I do acknowledge that everybody's body is different, and there might be a few % of people, negatively effected by some vaccines, so for that reason, at the end of the day, it has to be their (or their parents) choice.

But as for forcing everyone to get immunised before they have the disease, I'm not so sure about that. It would be one thing if their refusal endangered you, but it doesn't, because you yourself can just say yes to the immunisation, and then their decision either way is not a threat to you.

And even though I think this business about a link between autism and vaccines is probably just a conspiracy theory, I do acknowledge that everybody's body is different, and there might be a few % of people, negatively effected by some vaccines, so for that reason, at the end of the day, it has to be their (or their parents) choice.

How are you going to quarantine everyone with the flu, HIV, HPV, pertussis, pneumonia .... ?

Polio is airborne. HPV is not airborne. You should seriously stop attempting to conflate the two that way. You kid isn't going to walk home from school with her friends and just "catch" HPV.

You do wish to subjugate. Help that you "give" people against their will and after removing their rights is subjugating them. I've decided that there aren't enough people working the fields here. I'm going to "help" them and you by refusing to give you the right to choose another profession or go to another location. Don't worry, it is for the good of yourself and society. Don't you feel better now? You've also still not stated how you would "help" people against their will. How wonderful that you want to keep it in the intent realm. What would you do to all the bad people who don't want your help tonton?

There you go making sense again.

Mass graves of course.

So that means 12 year old girls should be required by law to get HPV vaccine?

Yes. What you don't get is that the HPV vaccine is useless once you're infected with HPV. The HPV vaccine must be administered before you are sexually active. It's better to administer it early than to say "Well MY girl is not sexually active yet, so let's wait!"

I'll tell you one thing. My daughter is 13. She's not interested in sex, and she has been taught well that she should wait, not because sex is some nasty thing, but because sexual relationships have consequences that young people have difficulty dealing with.

My 13 year-old daughter received her first Gardasil shot for Christmas. We are doing what's responsible, not running around in denial.
