Big debate on vaccine safety
Received Feb. 2
I am writing in response to James Droegemueller’s op-ed regarding the vaccine bill, SB1227, that would clarify the current law regarding parents’ statements for exemptions.
There should have been some fact checking on this article before it was submitted. The law for this can be found in Idaho Statute 39-4802, where it says parents only need submit a signed statement.
I am for this because parents should not have to sign a form that may contain wording that they do not agree with and the law clearly states that they do not have to do so.
To say there is no debate on the subject of vaccine safety and efficiency clearly shows that James has not looked into both sides of the argument and cannot therefore make an educated or unbiased decision, because there is absolutely a huge debate worldwide that has been going on since vaccines first entered the market and continues heavily today.
Stating that only unvaccinated children can spread diseases such as the measles, is untrue. Research vaccine shedding and the recent college outbreaks of measles and mumps that have been passed among fully vaccinated college students.
Parents of vaccine injured children would consider vaccines worse than children ingesting a Tide Pod, with side effects on the vaccine insert that include Guillain-Barre syndrome, seizures, paralysis (poliomyelitis) and encephalitis (brain swelling) among many others.
Where there is risk, there must be choice.
