Personal human liberty is a strong argument against vacine mandates. But for the moment, let's have a medical discussion.
SoonerPolitics is sharing stories from readers about the vaccine decisions that their household faces. we'd like to hear from more of you. Please comment or email your family perspectives and experiences. We'd love to add your own perspectives for future publications.
For most folks it comes down to a risk/benefit assessment. To that end, if a treatment is not properly tested and/or found to not meet it's own claims, then the reliability & integrity of the medical authorities is harmed greatly.
If the harms from the treatment exceed the initial warnings, then folks will not only stop further treatments, but be less trusting in the future.
The govt. is supposed to be a watchdog over the pharma industry, but they've become a cheerleader for big pharma and appear to be covering up important risk data.
"For my family, I became very hesitant to believe vaccine claims after my wife & son suffered severe and lasting harms about 16 years ago.
Until then, the Whooping cough vaccine was declared "a lifetime inoculation". But it took thousands of harmed people getting whooping cough and then getting misdiagnosed for weeks, before the vaccine claim was finally debunked.
Since then I found that the Pertussis 'vaccine' only masks symptoms and that vaccinated folks are among the carriers who spread the disease by posing as a well person." - Tulsa
"The Chicken Pox vaccine is a series of 3 injections over several weeks. It's developers told the federal govt. that if everyone was fully and properly vaccinated, the community cases of chicken pox or shingles would be about half (50%) what they are for an unvaccinated community.
But for generations past, the strategy was to deliberately expose children to the virus at about 10 years of age.
Chicken Pox is an annoying and itchy skin rash over the whole body for several days. But once a child is recovered, the antibodies last for the rest of his life. If he doesn't get childhood chicken pox, he risks contracting shingles as an adult. That can be deadly because it then invades internal organs as well as the skin.
Today's liberal medical societies now consider parents to be cruel for not opting for the childhood vaccine and instead relying on the natural therapy of childhood exposure.
Remember, the Shingles/Chicken Pox vaccine is only expected to reduce the risk by 50%, but childhood exposure therapies will give 98% protection for life." -Oklahoma City
