Yeah, but having to get yet another shot every 10 years? These things have formaldehyde in them for crying out loud. Can't remember where I read that, but I don't doubt it. After all, you are basically injecting a weakened virus into a person.
I can understand vaccinating for the really dangerous stuff, but flu and chicken pox? Kids who have compromised immune systems may need it, but normal healthy children get it all the time. I had it, and it sucked, but I survived. My whole kindergarten class got it, and were all back in class within a week. And now I'm good for life, which is probably a good thing since I don't have insurance and wouldn't be able to go back for a booster shot anyway.
Some people have bad reactions to vaccines. I did. I didn't know this until I had to get a physical my Freshman year, but there's a series of 3 shots you're supposed to get, MMR I think, and my medical records showed I only had 1 of them. My mom explained that after the first one when I was a baby I had a seizure. My parents decided not to give me the other 2 because they didn't want to risk it. Does that make them bad parents?
I do remember my dad going through cancer treatment. His doctor wanted to give him a vaccine, for pneumonia I believe, because the cancer treatment weakened his immune system. A few days later he came down with pneumonia.
