Re: To vax, or not to vax
I was talking to DH about this thread, and he (being him, lol) started looking up the number of cases of those diseases we vaccinate against - like how many cases each year, kwim?
Anyways, overall, in a normal year (no outbreak) the numbers of confirmed cases were really low - like 10-20. And those are just cases, not fatalities. So deaths would be lower numbers.
Now, seriously, how damn likely is it that each year one of those very few kids who had a confirmed case of one of those diseases died from that Ped's clinic.
AND, if that actually is true - WTF is wrong with that Ped or his office?!!! I'd be running for the hills rather than have my kid be his patient!
