As this discussion seems to be steering toward something that does not fit into the purpose of the I'm Not Vaccinating forum I'm reminding everyone of our current guidelines.
Posting about herd immunity is not really suited for this forum nor is a discussion of how vaccine strain measles is milder, how outbreaks in vaccinated populations is rare, and other discussions that are intended to present a more pro-vaccine argument. Posting long these lines is acceptable for the general Vaccinations forum and should be taken there.
This forum was created to serve the needs of members who have made the decision not to vaccinate or are seriously exploring making this decision. It is not a place to denigrate or criticize those who do vaccinate.
Posting to this forum will not be restricted only to members who do not vaccinate. However, we will actively restrict conversations in favor of mandatory vaccination or other topics that would be inappropriate for the forum. This is not a place for debate or discussions on the merits of vaccines or the dangers of not vaccinating, it is also not a place to argue against vaccines or selective and delayed vaccination schedules. Such discussions are already hosted in the main Vaccinations forum and posts in that vein are most welcome and appropriate there. Please respect this and post at all times with this in mind. Should you have any questions about the appropriateness of your post for this forum feel free to PM the forum moderator.
We Will Host Discussions on
- school and daycare waivers
- handling doctors appointments
- schools and daycare issues
- talking to family members
- current research
Any questions about any of this can be sent to me by PM for further clarification.
