Ok fellow mums, I’m on a mission! A Facebook friend of mine has just shared a post about the dangers of the flu vaccine, all it’s hidden yucky ingredients and all the ‘alleged’ ailments it can cause. There are a couple of comments on the post, most are anti vaccine, the only pro voice was mine. They’re citing evidence by Drs and health professional, studies that show the link between vaccines and all these nasties. What do you all think? Are you for or against vaccinations? Personally, it scares me that so many are becoming anti and not vaccinating their children. It scares me that so many childhood diseases that were under control are now once again spreading. Yes, I get that there are possible side effects. Most are minimal, soreness, fever, 1 of mine had a dead leg from one. The worse ones, like autism, there are barely any reported cases. I get that if you had a perfectly healthy child, then had them vaccinated and they were no longer normal/healthy, you would be upset and may not be pro vaccines. But I still think the pros far outweigh the cons! And I think if I was one of the unfortunate parents who things went wrong for, I would accept I was in the minority and try move on. I wouldn’t campaign against vaccines, threatening so many other children’s lives. The effects these diseases have on small children, resulting in death sometimes, is terrible. If you were a parent and had to watch your child suffer from a preventable disease…..how would you feel?
Anyway, just putting it out there, it scares me that the tide seems to be turning against vaccines. Looking forward to seeing your views
