Vaccination Flumdummery

(It may be worth noting that this was written in April of 2014)

I suppose this will hit some as meddling. I consider the actions of those I am about to describe as meddling.

In the county next to us, Nevada County, 20% of the children in Kindergarten are there with a vaccination waver. This means that these kids don’t have the required vaccinations to enter kindergarten.

I will make this simple. First, we must understand the herd effect of vaccinations by talking about a disease that has no vaccination; malaria. Malaria has been eradicated in the USA. This was done because the military wanted to train in the south and the south had malaria. So, we got rid of malaria. Now, the only reason there is no malaria is because a mosquito must bite a person with malaria before it can carry malaria to a new person. Simple. No malaria because of the herd effect. No people with malaria, so no malaria carrying mosquitoes.

Polio was a big deal when I was a kid. Big deal. People with useless legs, arms or worse in a iron lung (breathing machine) because of polio. The March of Dimes collected dime by dime because this was a big deal. This was a killer. This could ruin your body. It was contagious and dangerous. A vaccine for polio was developed; what a day that was. People lined up in town after town to get the shot. My parents and I lined up. It was a big deal.

Today polio is not a big deal in the USA. Why? Because most folks have had the vaccine so they don’t get polio. The result is we rarely hear of a case of polio.

Enter the parents who don’t want to vaccinate their kids for Mumps, Measles, Chicken Pox, Polio, whatever. They get a free ride. Their kids don’t get polio. Why? There are no people getting sick from polio because they have been vaccinated. Herd effect. The non-vaccinators get a free ride.

Now we have a California county with 20% of the kids in Kindergarten class without protection. That is about 6 in the average class. What happens when one kid gets polio in that class? Six kids are in danger. And six kids in the class next door.

Now you might be thinking, well you get what you ask for. Unfortunately, if a child gets polio and ends up in a wheelchair it is not the poor kid’s fault. It is the parent’s fault for not protecting their child. This is child endangerment. The same parents who have the latest car seat to protect their child have not protected the child against polio. But the big crime happens when these parents rush their kid to the doctor when the virus attacks. Of course, they want their child cured. Now, these loving parents just endangered every baby in the doctor’s office that is too young to have had their vaccinations.

Luckily it was not polio but a baby just came down with measles. Why? Poor baby was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. One day it will be polio.

So, meddling? It sure is. When you don’t vaccinate your children you are meddling in the lives of babies born to parents who will protect the child as soon as the baby is old enough. Child endangerment, plain and simple.

(And by the way… Andrew Wakefield (born 1957) is a British former surgeon and medical researcher, known for his fraudulent 1998 research paper in support of the now-discredited claim that there is a link between the administration of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, and the appearance of autism and bowel disease.
