    I am what you might call a cautious vaccinator, and vaccinate very slowly. but i would not be stupid and not vaccinate for whopping cough. please do it

    dont' vaccinate!

    if those news reports are credible then nobody should vaccinate – its just the big pharma companies – making a ton of money off of these vaccinations – that are telling the doctors to vaccinate our children. especially here where there is proof the vaccination is not working you shouldn’t vaccinate. protect your children and don’t vaccinate!

    Hope the parents suffer

    Unfortunately, it’s the children who will suffer the worst and potentially fatal effects of refusing to vaccinate, even though it’s their parents decision. I wish we could infect the parents who refuse to vaccinate and let them see how it feels to suffer through a bout of whooping cough. Then, having lived through it, they can decide what to do for their kids. Sadly, it’s not the case. So the innocent suffer at the hands of the naive and foolish, even though the foolish are their own parents! May G-D bless the children and protect them, since their own parents… Read more »

    There are many more vaccines now than when I was a child in the early 50’s. Back then we had to catch measles, mumps, chickenpox and German measles, and mothers tried their best to make sure we got them as children because in adults those diseases can be life-threatening. However, we did already have vaccines for smallpox, diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough, everybody got vaccinated, and Baruch Hashem nobody got those diseases. Only lately since fringe elements go around saying vaccinating is dangerous are they popping up again. How will you feel if your child chas veshalom dies of whooping… Read more »

    than unvaccinated individuals. Herd immunity is extremely important.

    If you don’t vaccinate and your ten-month old gets whooping cough and dies, you will NEVER forgive yourself. EVER.

    Also, you need a booster every five to ten years, just BTW.

    Dear Sheeple

    Stop being trolls of the media. Vaccinations when done properly, given to everyone who can safely be vaccinated, are effective. Medicine says so, science says so, the Torah says so and the Rebbe says so. If you refuse to vaccinate your children based on tinfoil hat theories or other stupidities, you hate children. The only word that can be used to describe you is “Idiot” because frankly, no proof, logic or fact speaks to you otherwise when you run to lactation consultants and herbal hippie healers over doing what the REBBE said to do: to follow the miracle and taste… Read more »

    Those that do not vaccinate make a place for the disease to take hold and spread to others. Researchers are finding that the newer DTaP vaccine does not last as long as they old one, but it can still be effective. It is an chilul hshem when these things pop up in the frum community as if we were living in some third world country.,

    Those who don't vaccinate their children - should home school them

    If a parent chooses to not vaccinate their child, then they should home school them.
    Simple. End of story.
    Immunizations only work when everyone gets vaccinated.
    Those who do not do it, are putting everyone else at risk.
    Minimize that risk by not allowing unvaccinated children into our schools.

    Make sure children are eating a balanced diet of fresh nutritious foods.

    Do you think the Rebbe was fooled by ‘big pharma’ when he advised people to vaccinate?

    Who gave you permission to put children’s lives at risk, and going against the Rebbe’s instructions?

    My child was one of the 30 cases of whooping cough. It is very frustrating as I do bh vaccinate my children. For all those UNEDUCATED individuals who don’t know how vaccination works, learn about it and you will see that vaccination only works when everyone does it. You have 30% of ch people who are SELFISH and think of only them selves who don’t vaccinate their children that is why someone like my child got the whooping cough. Pure chutzpah!

    To the uneductaed conspicay theorists : vaccine do NOT claim to be 100% effective

    The medical community does NOT claim that Vaccines are always 100% effective. In fact the efficacy is dependent on various factors. In general, childhood whooping cough vaccines (called DTaP) are effective for 8 or 9 out of 10 children who receive them. Among children who get all 5 doses of DTaP vaccine on schedule, effectiveness is very high within the year following the 5th dose — nearly all children (98 out of 100) are fully protected. There is a modest decrease in effectiveness in each following year. About 7 out of 10 of children are fully protected 5 years after… Read more »

    I guess you are more wise than the Rebbe who advised people to vaccinate their children.

    Seat belts save lives. There are some minority of cases where a seat belt can be harmful (eg in a car fire). However, risk analysis tells us for every 1 life that is harmed by seatbelts, 10,000s are saved by seatbelts.
    Risk analysis of vaccines are that vaccines save millions of lives and have serious side effects in a tiny minority. Torah and the Rebbe dictate that in such a case it is imperative to listen to the experts.

    risk vs benefit

    I once heard dr rosen on the phone with a patient who was apparently trying to convince him that he shouldn’t be taking a certain medication because of it’s side effects. Dr rosen responded- “Do you think I don’t know the side effects! I’m telling you to take it because you need it, and not taking it would be worse for you than the side effects!”
    We need to trust our doctors.
    Thank you Dr. Rosen for being a real rofeh yedid!

    There are lots of us who won’t go near a vaccine. You can talk till you’re blue in the face and call us whatever you’d like. Try giving us guilt trips, citing sources, whatever. We’re confident in our decision to stay away from that poison.

    You may as well stop poisoning yourselves too. According to your herd immunity belief, your shots are not effective. Why lose out with all those toxins?

    Recent studies

    Recent studies have shown that those who are vaccinated (with either DTaP or Tdap) and still get whooping cough are much more likely to have a mild illness compared to those who never received the vaccine. This means that if you get a whooping cough vaccine and still get whooping cough, you will have fewer coughing fits, shorter illness, and be less likely to suffer from disease complications. By getting the vaccine during pregnancy, you will also transfer antibodies (proteins produced by the body to fight off diseases) to your baby. Even if your baby gets whooping cough, these antibodies… Read more »

    Should be aware that any outbreak of illness is a danger for our community , the whooping cough can be spread easily because the first symptoms are like common cold so many people wouldn’t be concern ….
    Make your own decision …but in addition to vaccisination must be a public education how to prevent it or not spread it inside the community …. or any other hygiene methods

    Homeopathic “medication”? any double blind studies that support its efficacy? Of course not. Any supposed benefit from these ‘remedies’ is only a placebo effect. The only way to differentiate the placebo effect and medication that actually works is through peer reviewed studies, such as a double blind study.
    Otherwise, any youkel can make his own medication and sell to gullible people with no oversight whatsoever.

    1) Since it’s very serious, the health department called and asked alot of questions. That’s where they get there information from.
    2) the vaccination doesn’t help the coughing. It stops the spreading .
    3) PLEASE TAKE THIS VIRUS VERY SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!

    Pardon me...

    Let me get this straight: So a parent lacks resources or oversight. A child goes some time without an acceptable daily diet. (Whether because they didn’t get enough, or got bad foods) Their health declines, and they become increasingly susceptible to bacteria. One day their body fails to defend against a bacteria and gets colonized and they start coughing etc. They go to the doctor… The doctor talks about the name of whatever bacteria that got through while the body’s defenses were down. Then goes on a campaign to get everyone injected with the bacteria to help get rid of… Read more »

    Are you kidding me?! Use seichel!!! It’s a respiratory tract infection. It comes from poor air quality among other contributing factors (vitamin imbalances preventing the proper cleaning of the respiratory tract). Get a portable humidifier or vaporizer. Add such natural cleansers as cloves, fresh garlic, fresh onion all or none among others and a spoon of baking soda to a cup of boiling hot water. Stir and let steep then strain and mix with 2x tap water. Add a splash of vinegar and a few splashes of h2o2 (hp)… vaporize , inhale for several minutes at-least 4x a day… whooping… Read more »

    China has one of the most vaccination compliant populations in the world. In fact, measles vaccine is mandatory. So why have they had over 700 measles outbreaks from 2009 and 2012 alone? The obvious answer is the the measles vaccines are simply NOT effective. A recent study published in PLoS titled, “Difficulties in eliminating measles and controlling rubella and mumps: a cross-sectional study of a first measles and rubella vaccination and a second measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination,” has brought to light the glaring ineffectiveness of two measles vaccines (measles–rubella (MR) or measles–mumps–rubella(MMR) ) in fulfilling their widely claimed promise… Read more »
