    Only a matter of time

    It is only a matter of time that most physicians will be divided on the issue of vaccination. Also, really there is not a consensus of a “majority” of doctors. It is really one opinion of one or MAYBE a few doctors in the top organizations and the vast majority of the doctors are just following this recommendation. The majority are not well versed or experts on this subject. It is not their specialty.

    Vaccines work and are necessary almost all doctors agree. Vaccines do not cause autism contrary to what you might have seen on face book

    Giving vaccines has dangers

    Based on the vaccine insert…https://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/ucm188806.htm Serious complications reported by Merck in the MMRII product insert during vaccine post-marketing surveillance include: brain inflammation (encephalitis) and encephalopathy (chronic brain dysfunction); panniculitis (inflammation of the fat layer under the skin); atypical measles; syncope (sudden loss of consciousness, fainting); vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels); pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas); diabetes mellitus; thrombocytopenia purpura (blood disorder); Henoch-Schönlein purpura (inflammation and bleeding in the small blood vessels); acute hemorrhagic edema of infancy (rare vasculitis of the skin’s small vessels occurring in infants); leukocytosis (high white blood cell count); anaphylaxis (shock); bronchial spasms; pneumonia; pneumonitis(inflammation of… Read more »

    Benefits?

    What benefits are vaccines giving us and what are the potential harms do they come with? Every vaccine has an insert just like any pharmacudical product. Every time one takes a drug they are given a choice do the pro out way the cons? Vaccine should be no different… As parents we should choose the right what drugs/ vaccines we will subject our kids too. Once you take away that right it’s very dangerous. Look where NY is heading in the education department…. How can we as a community rally against the education but push our fellow Jewish bretherin to… Read more »

    That is like saying we shouldn’t have gets anymore because most rabbis aren’t well versed in the halachos of gitten. There are some authoritative opinions who hand down a ruling of what should be done. Not only that, but they have sources showing where they got their information from.
    Same with vaccinations.
    Herd immunization is to protect those that CAN’T get vaccinated.
    Don’t be a chochom.

    Those are all things you’d expect from just about any virus. That’s why if you have any symptoms post-vaccination, you should report them to your physician. You know what’s worse than side effects from vaccination? Dying from the thing you didn’t get vaccinated from. You know what’s even worse than that? Someone else dying because of your mistake!

    Which is what the letter says.

    It is right and proper that those who refuse to vaccinate themselves and/or their children be vilified and socially ostracized. I respect your legal right not to vaccinate your kids, therefore, YOU recognize MY right to band together with others who think like I do and REFUSE TO INTERACT WITH YOU IN A SOCIAL SETTING.

    I’m worried about the chilul Hashem uts making when national newsites are showing that Jewish communities refuse to vaccinate. Wether true or not it’s only a matter of time that the anti semites come out and blame the Jews for this disease as they have done in the past.

    We are now living in a time when anti semetism is starting to rear its ugly head, know your history all this will eventually add to the fire.

    Obviously there are all types of people who do not vaccinate but their communities are not being highlighted nationally.

    #1 and #3 . Please stop spreading fake news, as this endangers the community. It is an obligation to get vaccinated. To all the anti vaxers, take your propaganda elsewhere.

    Wow, such well meaning ignorance on the topic. Funny how no doctor yet has agreed to public debate or to prove mercury or aluminum is safe in vaccines. Just last week RFK was alone on a panel when 4 doctors backed out at the last second. Vaccines did not eradicate polio and the others they take claim for- just need to look up mortality statistics from countries like US and England and not zoom in to the year the vaccine was implemented but see the drastic drop trending even before. The dangers including death from vaccines is real but under-reported… Read more »

    People read them and then have to assess risk/benefit. Right now, we are seeing outbreaks for the first time in years! We MUST err on the side of caution. We are ch’v heading toward widespread epidemics of diseases we have had under control or eliminated entirely! Do these young anti-vaxer moms even know what polio is? I doubt it.

    A pediatrician old enough to remember, and mystified by those who stubbornly cling to dangerous, old world beliefs.

    In the decade before 1963 when a vaccine became available, nearly all children got measles by the time they were 15 years of age. It is estimated 3 to 4 million people in the United States were infected each year. Also each year, among reported cases, an estimated 400 to 500 people died, 48,000 were hospitalized, and 1,000 suffered encephalitis (swelling of the brain) from measles.

    Number 20, just curious, what year did you begin your job as a doctor? I see you posted a complete section from the CDC, but you didn’t give much information as to your standpoint chronologically.

    Regarding measles, are your numbers from the CDC worldwide? Total cases in US? How did that compare to influenza these days, when the CDC claims 80,000 deaths last year? Do you believe that as well? Labs receiving samples in NY this season report around 25% actually flu virus, but maybe they count all flu-like illnesses in their count. Death rate in NY only counts pediatrics, which was 5 so far. Hard to imagine how last year we reached 80,000 in US with numbers I can find on my own. Any ideas? As you are older, did you note the downwards… Read more »

    actually, there are medical doctors who do not force patients to vaccinate cuz unfortunately they have witnessed the dangerous side effects. why don’t they come out with their observations? very simple; their licenses will be revoked so their hands are tied. no one is denying that these diseases are dangerous and we all pray for all our safety but why oh why are thousands of parents first-hand sad accounts of losing their children’s health to vaccinations being ignored?? because the researchers for the safety of vaccinations are actually part of the companies producing them. its a sad day if parents… Read more »
