Yep, I still remember seeing the limping kids, the leg braces and a couple of times seeing people in the Iron Lungs. That kinda scared me, being stuck (trapped) in a box with only your head sticking out and an array of mirrors just to be able to look around.Those that are anti-vaccine should have to do the following:
Never take antibiotics - after all some people are allergic and may have a bad reaction, so do not take it so you support those poor people.
Never take allergy medications - after all some people are allergic or have reactions. Just let the snot flow & if you get phenomena oh well.
Never take fever reducers - after all some people are allergic or have reactions. Let the fever burn it's self out.
Never take blood pressure medications - if God wants you to die of a heart attack or stroke let his will be done.
Never take cholesterol medications - some are bad for you and it will take years for your arteries to clog up & you have a heart attack or stroke.
Never take diabetic medications/shots - you can adjust your diet, if you lived a sin free life you would not have this problem.
Never take any medications that the doctor orders - tests were done on animals & humans before it became available - how can you live with yourself.
I had a great aunt & an uncle that had polio, I saw the effects, I protected my kids. I had my kids vaccinated - I did wait until they were slightly older than the usual age, additional size/weight seems to help reduce the change of bad side effects. I also gave the antibiotics and other medications when needed. Yes they could have died form the "cure" - but they could have died from the cause. I am allergic to aspirin/aspirin products, I do not take them. I am type two diabetic, have high cholesterol & I take medications for these issues.
Anti-vaccine folks should have to care for people who are ill due to a lack of vaccination. The reality is not has pretty or noble as the cause leads them to believe.
I agree with you though. If you think vaccination is all a con job, then you should be thinking all meds are too.
