Honestly this unnecessary paranoia over coronavirus is kinda stupid. like who heard “wash your hands” and thought “buy all the toilet paper”. That’s like hearing “jesus loves everyone” and thinking “jesus hates gays, transgenders, people who get abortions, and vaccines”!
Thanks a million @drferox for the info about the hendra virus.
Feel free to read the above post, where Im getting my info, but the run down of it is that their are horse owners refusing to vaccinate their horses against a super deadly virus. The hendra virus, that bats transmit to horses (always fatal) and horses transmit to humans (Fatal most of the time).
If a living creature is in your care and can contract a diseas that we have readily available vaccines for VACCINATE.
hey yall I dont have a very big reach here but me and some friends are working on a project and I’d love any support you can give! We are aiming to inform people about vaccinations in a way that is easy to understand by keeping explinations simple and filtering out false information. Our insta is @ vaxinfo_for_all . Thank you!
I’m sorry but the anti-vax religious exemption rule makes zero fucking sense. It’s not okay to endanger your child because of religious beliefs???? If Americans were just allowed to be exempt from things because of religion I wouldn’t have to pay for a military that goes against my religious beliefs. But I guess since I’m not a church, I don’t get tax exemptions. You can’t pick and choose when religious freedom is important or not.
Okay so like I dont really care if I upset anyone by saying this but if you genuinely think essential oils are an appropriate stand-in for modern medicine, you’re a moron.
This is coming from someone who loves and uses essential oils. I like using oils that have the intent to calm someone down. It helps my anxiety having calming senses. But that doesn’t mean that oils will keep me from getting a deadly disease.
It’s not that hard to accept that while oils can be helpful for some things, they shouldn’t be used for every thing.
Relaxing scents to help(note I said help, not cure) anxiety and vaccines to keep you from getting measels are two completely different ballparks.
(Ok there’s a lot of things you need to understand but let’s start with this)
Vaccines aren’t just for you or your kid.
They’re for the infant that’s too young to be vaccinated yet.
They’re for the cancer patient who’s immunocompromised.
They’re for the people who can’t get vaccinated for health reasons.
They’re for the people a very small percentage of vaccines fail.
They’re for the people that are already sick with something else and their immune system can’t handle another disease at the same time.
They’re for the children whose parents refuse to vaccinate them and expose them to dozens of other unvaccinated people.
They’re for the unvaccinated pregnant person who might pull through just fine from something but could potentially lose their baby.
They’re for the people who have health issues that weaken their immune systems.
They’re for the elderly person in hospice who’s too weak to fight off even the flu anymore.
They’re for the people who don’t have access to vaccines due to financial or other reasons.
Almost all of these people are at high risk of dying or experiencing lifelong complications from something as “harmless” as the flu or measles. They are the people that need to be protected by herd immunity.
I know that all the posts going around make vaccines seem like big scary things that’ll kill your kid from being in the same room with them but they’re one of the safest medical procedures one can go through. The minuscule chance of complications happening far outweighs the big chance of bad things happening to both your unvaccinated child and anyone they potentially come in contact with.
(P.S. I might make a series of posts like this if people are interested. I’ll be tagging it #vaxrants on my blog)
