Hey folks…. If you ever want to change your user name for one reason or another - it takes place immediately and all your old posts now have your new name. This is not so good if you are changing your name for privacy reasons. It also has your old avatar and siggy. I thought it would be a brand new account - doh My advise: go offline for a few days/weeks, change your name and remember to change your siggy and avatar. I guess I will...

That is really VPD dependant. Consider this - let's assume 200 people a year get measles in the USA (very high estimate) and 199 are unvaxxed (very unlikely). The USA has a population of around 300 million. It is not only if a non-vaxxed person is more likely to get a disease that is important, it is the prevalence of the disease that is important. Let's face it: 299 999 800/300 000 000 in the USA do not get mealses. 99.99993 % of the population do not get...

If they are internally motivated...

If it was important to your daughter or family that daughter goes to school - then yes, there would be an adjustment period and it would be more than 2 weeks. However, it does not sound like it is uber imprtant for your daughter to go to school - she went because she was curious and because her friends went there (caveat: long standing and unfixable social issues may be a reason to try school - this does not sound like the case with your daughter). You are not...

The pertussis part of the vaccine is 59-89% effective. http://www.immunizationinfo.org/vaccines/pertussis-whooping-cough I am very sorry about your friends daughter. If I were the Op, I would try to figure out: 1. How likely it was my son would get pertussis(based on how they played together (many 11 months do not really play with other kids) how contagious the other child was (what stage of pertussis was it). I get some of this is a guess. 2. What does...
