A fifteen page story about the MMR vaccination controversy. As ever, I'm sure a few spelling errors have slipped past me. Feel free to point any out so I can correct them.

The reference links for the strip are in the next blog entry.

Now! Let's have a heated debate!

2013 update. Since I wrote this blog entry, this cartoon strip as well as many others on such subjects as homeopathy, chiropratic, evolution, and the supposed NASA Moon hoax landings, have been published in a book: Science Tales in the UK (Myriad Edtions) and How To Fake A Moon Landing in the US and Canada (Abrams). Here's the link to my main blog.

Okay, so say you do vaccinate on time... you stick your baby in daycare all vaccinated up, say that you are "building their immune system" and "socializing your two year old" by putting them with a babysitter all day when what you are really doing is making them unduly sick, reducing the amount of brain stimulating interaction they are receiving in this crucial period and last but not least, rationalizing your parenting choices for sticking your kids in an environment that, despite all these "socialization" claims, research clearly supports that children parallel play and are not capable of true, empathetic social interaction until about age five... which, gasp, is why kindergarten starts at age 5!! Shut the front door!! What a coincidence, right? So, if you don't want your child in a non-stimulating petri dish, and you want to delay vaccinations you need to make personal, financial, and parenting choices to keep your kids from being exposed to not only the non-vaccinated germs (Measles, mumps and rubella which, for the first two I DEFINITELY agree can be deadly and life altering to contract... my daughter contracted rubella on an airline flight (never let the stewardess hold your baby, lesson learned!) when she was 6mths... 6mths before she would have been vaccinated for it even on the CDC/APA standard vax schedule) but as with all viruses, to the super-bugs that are developed by a blanket inoculation program that has not adapted to a changing society.
All this being said, non-vaccination is a luxury of the middle class and beyond because, as a low income American, you can neither afford the time off work for the many doctors visits, the additional cost of the shots or co-pays associated with spacing out vaccinations, or the childcare choices that protect unvaccinated/delayed vaccination children until they are vaccinated/beyond the age of death by infection/etc. This, in my opinion, is the true travesty of all of this because, by virtue of some granite countertops and a weekly trip to Target we are somehow more worthy of controlling our children's health and safety than those who by virtue of their financial standing are forced to adhere to government mandated vaccination standards?
