Here, children can attend school without being vaccinated if the parents have signed a waiver showing that they have religious objections to vaccinations.

The result? We recently had a whooping cough outbreak.

I used to work with a guy who used to tell me that polio wasn't any worse than a cold, and that the vaccination was more dangerous than the disease. EVERYONE needs to do research.

Our son didn't receive the chicken pox vaccine because it had just come out the year he should have gotten it, and I didn't feel comfortable enough with it, feeling that the risks outweighed the benefits. His pediatrician agreed. He did get chicken pox and luckily it wasn't severe.

Kitkat, you're right. People need to educate themselves on all medical procedures, including side effects of drugs, etc.
