:topic:
As a child, I knew children who died of these diseases. The fear was very real. I can remember immunizations beginning to be available and was glad to get them.

There is fear of immunizations in our country, and thus, the number of immunized persons has decreased. The Centers for Disease Control recommends immunization of 95 percent of the population for each disease to protect those few that are unable to tolerate immunizations. This gives our population what is called herd immunity. Without this immunization percentage, diseases can once again gain a foothold.

It seems too many ignore those that can't get the vaccine. When there's someone in your family that cannot receive vaccines, one becomes a little more aware of the necessity of protecting them through herd immunity.

I know of one elderly man who did not get the flu shot (did not believe in them) then
he got the flu then got pneumonia and then he died. Probably could have been prevented
had he gotten the flu shot.
I have heard from others that know of people who have died from the flu (I don't know if those
people had the flu shot though).

Kayla usually gets vaccinated against flu but skipped the vaccine this year, her parents said.

Kayla did not have any especially troubling symptoms at first, William says, although their mother took her to a retail clinic and then to the hospital emergency room for a flu diagnosis.

I can't imagine what the parents are going through.

Is the world getting stupider, or is it just getting easier for stupid people to have their thoughts heard?

There are many sites that mention it as stomach flu even though it isn't related to a flu virus. Doesn't really matter what it's called when you have it - it's brutal.

You should have read the article - lower immunization rates and not obtaining the vaccines are the problem as well as people not wanting to make an appointment with their doctor to get the vaccine.
