Its okay Dotsie.... YOU do the evidence based medicine and I will do the "anecdotal evidence"
How my mother cried like a baby the day the last of her children were immunised for polio after her oldest of the 12 had come through having polio in the great outbreak.
How getting measles and mumps and whooping cough left children deaf or handicapped or dead even when I was a child and Mum rushing around baking and mum and dad talking quietly about Mrs so and so losing her boy during the night and dad quietly checking us all out for signs of infection. I was hospitalised with mumps.
Or maybe just sit in the corridor of a hospital while a tiny child is gasping for a breath with hooping cough, when even the nurses are crying.
All of my girls have a full immunisation chart.... and the government took chicken pox off the register and noone told ME it was still in dangerous numbers.... until all three of them got it one after the other.... BAD. Just the pain they went through was shocking. I dont remember sleeping for weeks.
I refuse to be politically correct in any way when it comes to immunisation!
Just keep swimming... just keep swimming.. just keep swimming....
