    a parent's choice not to vaccinate a child is "an issue of freedom.
    Well in that case paying taxes is also an "issue of freedom". I think we "should have some input" into the amount of money we give the government.

    This opinion came trolling across my feed this morning:

    (to paraphrase) our kids do not live in a polio infested area so why would our kids need vaccinations?

    How do you counter this type of mindset?

    ^"Vaccinations are the reason your kids don't live in a polio infested area". You could add "moron" but it's implied.

    were all the kids in the day care too young to be vaxed? did they figure out the source?

    So far, all they are saying is that the 14 that are currently being quarantined are all under the age of 1. So was the baby that actually has measles. I don't know about the other children, because they definitely have kids there that are toddlers and older.

    Did you guys see this story today?

    5 Infants at Illinois Day Care Diagnosed With Measles

    CHICAGO Feb 5, 2015, 7:40 PM ET
    By DON BABWIN Associated Press





    Five infants who attend a suburban Chicago day care center have been diagnosed with measles and about 10 more children, including some also too young for vaccinations, could have been exposed to the disease, health officials said Thursday.
    The Illinois and Cook County health departments said in a news release that lab tests confirmed measles in two infants who go to the KinderCare Learning Center on East Palatine Road in Palatine. Tests are pending for three others, but they have been diagnosed based on symptoms.
    Officials had not identified the source of the infections at the center as of Thursday, but Dr. Terry Mason, chief operating officer for the county's health and hospitals system, told a news conference there is no known link between the infants' measles and a recent outbreak at Disneyland that sickened dozens of people.
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there have been at least 102 confirmed measles cases in 14 states in 2015, not including the Palatine cases. Of those 102, 94 were related to the Disneyland outbreak.
    Mason said children who have not been vaccinated whether infected or exposed should not return to the Palatine center until Feb. 24 or until they provide proof of vaccination or immunity to measles, which is spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
    It's so contagious that 90 percent of people who aren't immunized are infected if exposed to the virus, according to the CDC.
    The Illinois cases come amid growing concern about children who are not vaccinated, including in California where lawmakers are hoping to follow the lead of two other states with proposed legislation that would require parents to vaccinate all schoolchildren unless a child's health is in danger.

    An old friend of mine is a rabid anti-vaxxer. Natch, she lives in Marin County.

    She and her husband are probably in major conflict over their baby's vaccination status. He's no right-winger. In fact, he's such a hippie. But it's his only child. And he's not a fanatic. She keeps angrily posting new "evidence" to his timeline. Not sure if she realizes all their mutual friends see them. I feel so weird/embarrassed for her.

    Here's what she posted today. There's nothing you can possibly say to someone who thinks like this. It's like people who are obsessed with the belief that their father was the Zodiac Killer....just so paranoid and neurotic. It's sad.

    Did you know that every time a parent gives in to their kid's whines and buys them candy at the checkout lane, a kitten gets diabetes?-Dlisted
