Some of my coworkers and I have just finished a brief conversation about vaccinations and the current outbreak(s) of Measles in the USA.
We came to general consensus in that, unless you've got a known allergy to the ingredients in a given vaccine, a compromised immune system that wouldn't handle the vaccine well (for that time period at least), or some other medical issue (that is proven and backed up empirically), you are excessively risking your kids'/kid's life by not vaccinating them, as well as risking your own.
I consider myself general, run of the mill for being vaccinated against such diseases, both now as an adult and when I was a child. Guess what? No worries about polio, measles, rubella, varicella (chicken pox), one or two of the hepatitis variants. A year or two ago I had to get a check-up and re-vaccination for my childhood disease prevention (far less terrifying now than when I was a kid; I hate/d needles).
This is the end of my rant. If I've offended anyone, to which I don't believe I have, that was not the intent.
