New Jersey now requires kids looking to go to preschool and child care centers to get flu vaccines. Many parents think you can't require them to immunize their children 'In America', like it's some socialist plot out of the old Soviet Union. To them we say "HARD CHEESE". You CAN be required to immunize your children. Hell, Johnny had to get shots before he went to school back when the world was still in black and white. It only makes sense to protect others from your child's creeping crud. Johnny doesn't want your kids illness. It passes quite easily from your kids to somebody else's kid who then gives it to a parent who works in an office with Mrs. Action Space Punk who then brings it home to good old Johnny. Kids are germ factories. Duh.
Now some group calling itself New Jersey Coalition for Vaccination Choice is hiding behind some reasoning that flu vaccines (and you'll notice their name isn't just about FLU vaccines, it's all inclusive) can cause autism despite the fact that study after study after study does not prove their point. What's next, these people doesn't want their kids immunized (as New Jersey law requires) by sixth grade for things like meningitis, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis?
Bottom line: Vaccinations are NOT a choice. They should never be a choice. Hell, we'd like to see the HPV virus vaccine mandated for girls to keep them safe from cervical cancer. So many insipid laws are passed under the guise of "oh think of the children", well, here's one that helps actually physically tangibly protect children, and yet some people are fighting it.
It's making Johnny sick it is...
