In all seriousness this anti-vaxxer movement is one of the most successful active measures operations because even well educated people are susceptible to fall for it.   Every mother on earth wants what’s best for her child and this influence operation preys on that vulnerability. 

It’s really unfortunate

Maybe you should research this before you dismiss me.  

The Kremlin has been pushing on this issue hard since 2014.  While they may not have originated it, it is one of their big projects.

Many scholars stumbled into Russian online influence operations by noticing their presence in the anti-vaccination debate long before 2016.

Hugo is right about some of the science disinformation, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that the Russian Government were behind the conspiracy that the US Govt/Military were the creators of HIV.

@Goredho I really feel for you, because even the delayed schedule is buying into a bunch of misinformation since it still leaves lots and lots of healthy kids at risk for things that could otherwise be prevented.

What the fuck are you talking about? You clearly have zero understanding of how the Russian disinformation campaign works. They take wedge issues (abortion, climate, vaccines, etc.) and they produce propaganda to target both sides of the discussion. They do it for basically every wedge issue you can think of.

Ohhhhh I have a good one, you’re a fucking dunce who has his head buried in the sand.

Inevitable that some parents will be clueless about preventable diseases because it’s been preventable for so long.   The risk seems like zero since NO ONE gets measles or whatever.  Until they do.   I feel for their kids who may suffer because of the ignorance and borderline recklessness of their parents.   And for those kids that go through this, they will learn from their parents mistakes.

Nice. 

May I suggest a change to "immune to your mumps and measles"?

Just flows better.

Those who are involved in the outbreak have connections to Waxahachie and Midlothian, and it's possible more cases will occur because of how contagious measles is, the Texas Department of State Health Services said. 

 

I have a strong suspicion that none of those people have ever set foot in a Whole Foods.

Waxahachie, you say?

Why?

Would you withhold a lifesaving drug from your child if they had cancer just because it was new to the market?

Because vaccinations are literally live saving medications for young children.

The majority of vaccines have been around for decades.

The newer ones - chicken pox, HPV - have been on the market 15-20 years.

And any new ones would go through the same rigorous clinical trials for efficacy and safety.

More children are harmed by choking on hot dogs or household accidents than vaccines.

Even putting your argument of hesitation because of some vague fear about new products reinforces the fiction about the safety of vaccines and emboldens those who are arguing junk science.

I gave my 10 and 13 yr old the HPV shot because why not?  Didn't even have to do that vaccine but why not vaccinate against everything?

Because registration trials are insufficient to establish the safety profile of newly approved drugs. The list of drugs with post marketing or post authorization safety requirements is long. The reality is that we don't really know the safety profile of a medication until it has been on the market for some time.  I have studies in play where the drug has been on the market for 8 years before we will have a "definitive" safety assessment completed.

That, plus the manufacturer will hide the adverse events until they can't hide them any more.  And then  they will fight Black Box and try to bury it so as not to harm sales.  Marketing and profit is King.

I remember lining up in grade school for those shots. Scared the hell out of me. But know what? Toughened us up. Didn't feel the need to stare at the phone all day for guidance. Because it was just a dumb-ass phone, hanging on the wall with that wiggly cord you could stretch across the room. Hey! Peanuts! Gimme some!

First of all, a cancer patient - depending on the medical facts/situation - most likely has a different time/risk factor versus a healthy child taking vaccines so the decision would be a very different set of variables and isn't a very meaningful comparison/argument.  Number two, it has been shown time and time again that "rigorous trials" on numerous medical products are often unable to provide a reliable safety profile without some time in the market.  Hot dogs and choking accidents are irrelevant as a comparison to the decision being considered with those specific facts/variables.  Same with slipping in bathtubs, getting hit by lightning, etc.  I don't worry about emboldening anyone else, it's my children and there are always alternative vaccines that have been on the market for years that are just fine that have a more proven track record.  If I am concerned with herd immunity in a neighborhood, I would just leave.

Be more specific. What percentage are we talking about?

Now THAT would be a very difficult question to answer as very precise data isn't as easy to come as one might expect, especially on a macro level.  This is probably one way to get started but it would require some parsing of different databases I would think.

https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/Surveillance/AdverseDrugEffects/ucm082193.htm

 

This is also too old but one example of SAE rates in clinical trials, some other countries frankly are better at this (more strict protocols for safety) than the United States too.  If you look at the one graph with specifically vaccines it appears the expected SAE rate is very good for by expectation medical trials.  Whether you think a 3% rate or the expected norm of a 10% SAE rate being reasonable in that specific example is not for me to say of course.
