    Vaccination campaigns are generally accepted as having contributed to the worldwide elimination of smallpox, through herd immunity, and to the restriction of polio to isolated pockets in countries where healthcare access is difficult.

    In general, most of the vaccines are of a type that are very harmful and communical. Measles for example can spread veryt fast and do a great deal of harm to those that catch it. Rubella (german) measles, is not only harmful to the young but also to the unborn if the mother becomes infected.

    Because the diseases are communicable and if they were not required they would sweep through the schools and start epidemics.

    to prevent any more illnesses that can actually eventually dissapear if people continue to vaccinate

    Because you have nasty people who arent properly clean and might come in contact with your kids, sexually or not and might pass the diease on to them.. but my thing is vaccinations dont work with a crap, you have people who are so anal about there kids have vac. when they come in contact with a kid who doesnt have vac, they act like you have the diease the thing is if this vac, were so great then you wouldnt have to worry about the kids who didnt have there vac...

    NONE of my kids have any vaccinations dont believe in them..

    People need to do research on these vac. instead of jumping on the band wagon..
