I can go to any doctor in Michigan and get my shot records from since I was born. Is this just a Michigan thing? I thought it was anywhere as long as you were born in that state.
I know Florida has Floridashots.com where the health care professional that does your vaccine can input the information. It's really simple to use and keep track of. You can also print the form needed from the site, and it even tells you if the patient is missing a necessary vaccine. I thought every state had their own version
You need immunization records to go to any college. They need to know that you aren't carrying some infectious disease that you could spread to your class mates. College is like the best place in the world for disease spreading because of all the people living in such close quarters.
Miss_sqwert - You don't BELIEVE in immunization? So you don't believe it something that eradicated polio and smallpox off the planet? You don't believe in something that has drastically reduced the incidence of mumps, measles, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, and chicken pox? You're an idiot.
#28 You've GOT to be kidding me, right? Are you trying to die as fast as possible? With all the diseases and shit we have and thousands of ways to catch them, you're probably not going to make it to 45. If even that. And since you don't believe in it, if you have kids that must mean you don't take them to get vaccinated either, correct? Kids have way lower immune systems than teens/young adults, if you have small children you're gonna have hell to pay for not getting them vaccinated.
I totally agree, my brotherI was very badly affected by a DTAP vaccination, and now he is permanently disabled. There are ways around vaccination, religious reasons or health reasons. I am an non-citizen greencard holder in America currently, and I have a medical waver stating vaccines have more negative qualities than good. Legally, you have the right to refuse vaccinations, and I suggest if you do have them, you spread them out over a long period of time. It's really simple, we know that different medications interact with each other, it's very likely different vaccines do to.
Totally not true. If you have beliefs that include not altering your body, or the risks outweigh the benefits, you can talk to your doctor about it. He'll try to change your mind, but he'll sign off a waver and allow you to be in schools. 45% of Americans aren't vaccinated, and there isn't any sort of health disaster. Don't believe everything you hear.
Immunisations are a personal choice. If you believe the research then have the vaccinations. If you don't, ( and yes there is plenty of research to say that vaccinations aren't necessary) then don't. Personally I have my own viewpoint, as I don't believe that there is enough monitoring and reporting of adverse side effects to ensure we have the full picture. If you have an adverse side effect, and that means anything from a headache to an elevated temperature to localised tenderness, these are supposed to be reported to your doctor, who should then keep a database and report back to the health board and then the pharma company. That is how proper monitoring should be done. But apparently less than 1 in 500 adverse reactions are reported to the doctor, and even less back to the appropriate authorities. However my son is vaccinated for most things ( due to travelling to third world countries where the infection rate makes it necessary). Surely as a previous poster said you could be a conscientious objector and still be allowed entry? Or what if you were allergic or sensitive to certain vaccines? There must be an option for those cases.
#39:[ Personally, I believe in correct grammar and punctuation. However, since I am such a nice person, I will refrain from ripping you apart this once.] Do you understand that you used incorrect puntucation? You did not add commas, to denote additional information, where you should have. "However, since I am such a nice person, I will refrain from ripping you apart this once. . . Should be...
