A post about vaccines

6 Jan

Vaccines save lives. Lack of vaccines cost lives. People telling you not to vaccinate or to vaccinate selectively like health is a commodity in a shoping market cost lives. Doctors who have no real belief in vaccines should maybe consider a new line of work.

    I know but its worth it 🙂

    Tragic story. It’s sad to see the medical establishment using it to push more vaccine. Anyway it looks like the “younger” doctor is off the hook since:

    it is recommended that Prevnar not be routinely given to children over five years old. The risk of invasive infection with the pneumococcus bacteria is much less in children over age five.

    I wonder what made this child so vulnerable to such a rare occurrence? And should I have my child vaccinated if he or she doesn’t share those vulnerabilities? Unfortunately these videos, full of fear and forebodence, are always short on detail.

    Push more vaccine…? You make it sound like crack. I wish you could ask this mum if she’d vaccinate given the chance. What do you think her answer would be?

    It’s crack to the medical establishment. And I don’t know what is the site’s purpose?

    PKIDs is funded by parents, individuals, corporations and foundations – this includes unrestricted grants from pharmaceutical companies

    And various CAM companies fund Age of Autism etc. Should they be disbelieved then?

    How are vaccines crack to the….oh never mind, its a ridiculous thing to get into. You need to pull your head out your ass and see whats going on Sid. Kids are dying. I’ll ask you again – what do you think this mum would do if she had the time over again? Vaccinate her daughter? Or not?

    Stupid question Kev. People don’t go back in time to make decisions.

  8. Kev January 6, 2010 at 16:42 #

    Really? Shit Sid, thanks for putting me straight on how the space/time continuum works.

    *Sigh* guess I’ll have to be a LOT more explicit with you Sid.

    Hypothetically (big word, look it up if you need to), what do you think this mum would do if she had the time over again? Vaccinate? Or not? Now man up and answer the question or go pollute someone elses blog.

  9. Sid Offit January 6, 2010 at 16:48 #

    Yes she would vaccinate. And if I knew tomorrow’s lotto number, I’d go buy a ticket. Feel better?

    PS
    I just saw your video on USA Today’s site as well. Nice to see it’s getting around.

  10. Kev January 6, 2010 at 16:50 #

    And _why_ do you think she would choose to vaccinate Sid?

  11. Sid Offit January 6, 2010 at 16:55 #

    The limit for answers to stupid questions is one – and you’ve reached it.

  12. Kev January 6, 2010 at 17:00 #

    No Sid, its only a stupid question to people like yourself who don;t seem able to process fact. I’ll ask you again, _why_ in your opinion would she choose to vaccinate her daughter? You can of course continue to wriggle and squirm but your discomfort at what your unscientific beliefs ultimately lead to (thats death Sid, death) tells its own story.

    Now screw your courage up tight and answer the questions.

  13. Sid Offit January 6, 2010 at 17:09 #

    Are you holding your breath? If so, let me know when cyanosis develops.

  14. Kev January 6, 2010 at 17:14 #

    No Sid I’m not holding my breath. People like you can never answer the important questions and can never ultimately justify their own beliefs. You’re a sad example of humanity Sid. Unable to confront the reality of what you and people like you believe in and unable to accept any responsibility for the same.

    You can go now Sid and don’t come back till you can answer the questions put to you.

    Sid Offit: “Anyway it looks like the “younger” doctor is off the hook since:

    it is recommended that Prevnar not be routinely given to children over five years old. The risk of invasive infection with the pneumococcus bacteria is much less in children over age five.”

    I’m just stunned that anyone would go to such convaluted lengths to defend the death of a child. Prevnar is clearly indicated for children over age 5 who have not been previously vaccinated. There is a dosing schedule for that group. Moreover, had the child been vaccinated properly at 2, 4, 6 and 12-15 months, she’d be alive.

    Sid, your antivax position is scientifically baseless, morally bankrupt and just plain dishonest.
