Not going to debate it I just wanted to add to this conversation but I have done a ton of research and I believe it is what is best for my children and myself.
I don’t know how the vaccination of children came into this – but I have to correct you Erinself – you say that in England children do not receive the pertussis vaccine –also known as Whooping Cough – that is 100% incorrect and your research is wrong.
This link will show you that uptake of the pertussis or as it is also known the whooping cough vaccine is over 90% in England, Ireland is similar.
Whooping Cough Vaccination | Doctor | Patient.co.uk
My daugher when she was 3 weeks old got whooping cough and spent 3 months in intensive care, she was extremely ill and was very, very fortunate to have survived – at 3 weeks she was too young to have received the first round of vaccinations but caught it from a child who was not vaccinated and had whooping cough.
I study historical documents as part of my work and I have come across records of parishes losing almost all their children through measles, whooping cough, etc. etc in the 1800s and early 1900s before vaccinations were available – it is heartbreaking to see entire families lose all their children month after month, villages losing almost all their children to diseases which fortunately now are preventable.
Vaccinations save lives – do we really want to return to the days where TB, Polio, Whooping Cough, Measles, etc etc wipe out populations of children because that is what happened before Vaccination, these were deadly and vicious diseases which swept through countries with no mercy – yes nowadays some people think they are safe not vaccinating their children but that is only because the majority of children around them are vaccinated and therefore the diseases don’t spread as they used to– but the more people who don’t vaccinate – the more children will die of these diseases again, and I for one am extremely angry at the family who did not vaccinate their child and who passed the whooping cough unto my then 3 week old child.
It is 100% proven that people/children die from these diseases.
