    People have a right to choose not to inject themselves or their children with a slew of harmful substances that are potentially harmful to a person’s long term health and immunity!

    I thought the US is a democracy… Thanks for the Mayor for declaring” vaccines are safe” now I will go running vaccinate my kids and myself… What this guy understands about health and vaccines… Watch the documentary “the truth about vaccines” you will see how many DOCTORS are against this poisoning process in babies, and in general against what the state declares to be “safe”. Maybe one day people will see the truth…maybe not…but I will make sure to FOLLOW A SAFE VACCINATING SCHEDULE NOT the state’s one nor every doctor’s one. Check Dr Paul Thomas online. You can continue… Read more »

    Are the non vaxers waiting excitedly for their unvaxed children and non vaxable new born babies to get the Measels? Is that what’s happening? Do you seriously think that getting the Measels is a better option? What about the low or no immunity adults in your family? Are they ready for this illness and the loss of income and sheer misery that comes with it?

    The case of measles in CH the person WAS vaccinated. So vaccinating doesn’t much other than poisons the babies and can develop authism, which of course will be diagnosed not because of vaccines. So you are taking a baby who has a 1 in hundreds of thousands chance of catching measles or maybe one in million, and giving him the chance to be autistic 1/50 in the US. Dr Paul Thomas mentioned above had many cases of authism in his practice for years, Once he CHANGED the vaccine plan which includes no MMR until 3, the number is 0 and… Read more »

    To #7 - you need to educate yourself about herd immunity.

    Google “herd immunity” and read up on it. The nonsense of “someone who was vaccinated got the illness, so vaccinations are pointless” is exactly that – nonsense. No vaccine is 100% effective, and many people are immunocompromised. The way vaccines work is that when enough of the population gets them, the disease STOPS CIRCULATING and then the percentage of people who are susceptible are safe as well. Measles happens to be the first once-eradicated disease that’s sprung up again, and “pro-diseasers” seem happy enough letting it become a widespread health risk. How happy will you be to let your kids… Read more »

    And no sense in arguing with these antivaxers. They will not listen to any real facts.
    I cannot believe someone above still thinks vaccines cause autism! LOL. I thought antivaxers used other excuses now.

    What a joke… stay strong – dont vaccinate. Do you really think they have ur childrens interests in mind? These are the same group against metzitza bepeh – suddenly now all of the frum chasidim are so supportive of their policies. Next they will outlaw metzitza bepeh on the grounds it’s not safe! All this while they promote alternative marriage and rights and legalizing marijuana… dont vaccinate unless absolutely necessary and not until age 3 like comment above!

    Ask your doctor for a blood test to check if you’re immune. Some people need a booster shot

    As more and more pro vax get hurt unfortunately, the anti vax movement will keep growing. some ppl learn the hard way , and some ppl learn from others mistakes
    Forceful tactics always backfire in the end.

    Regardless if you are a pro-vax or not. It is totally unAmerican to force people to vaccinate.

    We Americans have a right to choose. The fact that they need to threatens ppl with fines is against peoples rights as Americans!

    American's choice

    It is constitutional to force people to do things for the common good. One example is a US Supreme Court case: Jacobson vs Massachusetts. the person was forced to be vaccinated because of the court determined that the freedom of the individual sometimes needs to be subordinate for the common good. An extreme example would be someone who chooses to drive while drunk. While the person has the freedom to become intoxicated he doesn’t have the right to drive which could lead to someone else being hurt or even death. Same thing with a seat belt. People can choose not… Read more »

    Interesting quote from R’ Nachman of Breslev.
    “Every parent should have his children vaccinated within the
    first three months of life. Failure to do so is tantamount to murder. Even if they live far from the city and have to travel during the great winter cold,they should have the child vaccinated before three months” (Avaneha Barzel p.31 #34).

    Take it to court

    NEW YORK DO NOT COMPLY If a “health officer” shows up at your door and demands to check your vaccine records, and threatens that you and your children will be force vaccinated against your will or you will face a $1000 fine, state this: You will take the $1000 fine, but you will also: 1. You will make a legal investigation as to whether a 48 hour notice is within the law to force a medical product or procedure on an unwilling individual. 2. You will make a legal investigation as to whether it is within the law to force… Read more »
