Forced vaccination: A slippery slope?

Many believe vaccines have been incredibly successful in eradicating and preventing deadly diseases. Most doctors agree that if your body can tolerate vaccines, and you are not on the Centers for Disease Control’s list of those who should not get a particular vaccine, then it’s a good idea to get them.

CDC indicates that, when it comes to vaccination, the calculation is different depending on the individual and the vaccine involved since not all vaccines are equally safe, necessary or tolerated by a given child or adult.

So should the government force you or your child to vaccinate? If so, with which vaccines– and when? After all, some vaccines have been pulled off the market for safety reasons. The government has paid damages in cases of children getting overloaded with too many vaccines at once. And some individuals have adverse reactions with no advance warning.

In the article, “Should we panic over measles outbreaks?” Dr. Jane Orient explores the idea of vaccine mandates and how, she says, implementing them will only hurt the public’s trust in physicians and health organizations.

You can read more below:

In general, it is not a good idea to panic about anything. The panic itself often causes more harm than the original threat.

Crisis situations, real or contrived, lead to new intrusive laws the public would never accept otherwise. We supposedly cherish freedom, but if we believe that the world will end if we don’t act NOW, then we may clamor for the government to save us. Cynical politicians bent on increasing their power never let a crisis go to waste.

Something like the Green New Deal – the end of our comfortable, prosperous lifestyle – takes a truly apocalyptic threat. But to eliminate our freedom to decline a medical treatment, the threat that “millions will die” of measles is evidently enough. Or if not millions (most older people had measles and recovered fully), a few especially vulnerable children, who can’t be vaccinated themselves, might catch measles and die.

There are several hundred cases of measles nationwide, more than in 2014, and bills are being pushed through state legislatures to eliminate all but very narrow exemptions to the 60 shots now mandated for school attendance.

In New York City, people are receiving summonses based on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s emergency order. Everybody, adult or child, who lives in four ZIP code areas must get an MMR shot or prove immunity, or face the prospect of a $1,000 fine ($2,000 if you don’t appear as ordered). Your religious exemption is overridden. The threat of six months in prison and the prospect of forcible vaccination were removed before a hearing on a lawsuit brought by five mothers. The judge dismissed the case.

  1. My son had a vaccination prior to attending the 1st grade. Within a couple hours he had a high fever. Then he went into convulsions and almost died.

  2. I was forced to have the flu vaccine in order to keep my job at the local hospital, even though I had no patient contact and worked in an out-building in front of a computer all day. People were fired for not complying. This started with the swine flu outbreak in 2009. I started researching what I could and found out that swine flu doesn’t exist in nature, it was laboratory produced. The last outbreak in 1970s killed some people, well, the pneumonia killed them, not the flu. The UN’s WHO redefined ‘pandemic’ to include inter-continental spread (easy with jet travel) and eliminated the “severity” component. Later I found out how the WHO medical team was working in concert with Merck/Glaxo-Smith-Klein to “help” everyone get vaccinated for a very mild form of flu.. I cooperated the first year, but the more I found out about how this was all linked with Obamacare, and hospitals’ reimbursement was ultimately tied to penalties if there weren’t 100% compliance, it all started making sense. I protested each year insisting that my human rights of self-defense were being violated with no informed consent as to what is really in these inoculations. Each year my request for exemption was rejected.- all the other hospitals colluded in this, so there was nowhere else for me to go. AS soon as I could retire, I did (2013). If vaccines were so safe and effective, they would sell themselves and no one would have to be mandated. That little babies are jabbed so many times with this crap is criminal. People who get vaccinated for the measles, mumps, flu, etc., are walking disease-bots for the first few days (they should be quarantined), but instead they infect the vulnerable…not to mention those at our borders being escorted by ICE all around the country to infect even more. Trump had it right before he had it wrong. The years it took to get this country healthy from infectious diseases all going down the proverbial dunghole.

  3. The “vaccination zealots” who insist on forced medication obviously have no consideration for the Constitution and individual rights. Where does this forced medication stop? Shall we all be compelled to medicate and exactly who chooses what we are vaccinated for, the government? And to those zealots I have a question, “if your child is vaccinated and mine is not, exactly how is my child a danger to yours? Have you no faith in the vaccination you forced upon your child?” This is not about health, it’s about control.

  4. My Uncle and Great Uncle both died of Diphtheria at age 9. This does not happen now. Vaccines save multiples of billions of lives. The Autism link to vaccines is still unproven. I have an autistic Grandson. Anti Vacc’ers are doing a disservice to the public. With the swarms of unvaccinated sick illegal immigrants flooding into the country, the clusters of un vaccinated anti vacc’ers will lose the herd immunity and suffer accordingly.

    1. We have medication for diphtheria if needed. All VPD were virtually eradicated bf vaccines. Hordes of kids are not coming onto the country and spreading diseases. There are NO cumulative safety studies on the current childhood vaccine schedule. None. my kids nor myself signed up to take 70+ vaccines (200 more in development) for the herd. Get your own damn shots. The pharmaceutical industry has complete immunity from prosecution for any damages or death. The taxpayers pay the bills $4 billion to date. Let them stand by their products and take their medicine.
