I see this as a big deal because it pisses me off to NO END that my kids got rotovirus from a vaccinated child. Do I care that we got roto? Nah, not really. Illness is illness and it's the season. We take our Vit C, wash our hands often and drink plenty of fluids. But, when a parent KNOWINGLY exposes a freshly vaxed child and his contaminated stool to my family because a group of scientists decide that's acceptable it pisses me off. Why spread it on purpose to healthy kids????
I don't even take my kids to other people's houses when they have a cough or suspicious sniffle!
Did rotovirus suck? Yes. Was it gross? Yes.....oh, my gosh, what it EVER THE MOST DISGUSTING THING I've ever been through. Even though we went through that, I still wouldn't get the vax. The ingredients alone are enough to seal the deal. I'll take my chances with uncompromised immune systems and (semi)natural strains of diseases that go through the channels our bodies were meant to take them into. My 4 month old, exclusively breastfed baby was the only one that didn't get it. Even my husband and I got it and with me taking care of her all night and nursing, she still didn't get it.
It was at that moment I wish I had put my whole family on an exclusively breastmilk diet.
I don't want to start an additional debate about exposing freshly (live)vaxed kids to the population. I probably won't be back to read on here for another few weeks anyway and wouldn't be able to rebute.
