Others are angry and resentful about vaccination mandates. Many are caught in the middle—afraid, confused, and looking for the straight scoop. If you want to understand the real issues in the vaccination debate, read this book. Whether you are a parent, student, employee, soldier, or anyone else, you have a stake in this debate. No matter who you are, sooner or later you will wonder, Should I get a vaccine? Do I have a choice? Who decides? The vaccination debate has two distinct viewpoints, one “pro-vaccine” and the other “pro-choice.” The camps usually hurl the same insults at one another, characterizing the other side as irresponsible, dangerous, denialist, corrupt, and antiscience. Although this book favors vaccination choice and explains why, we attempt to objectively outline each basic view by setting derogatory labels aside. VACCINES ARE EPIDEMIC Starting on the day of birth, nearly all American children receive vaccines. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends seventy doses of sixteen different vaccines between birth and age eighteen. The federal government recommends vaccines for adults too. It is the states, however, and increasingly private employers, that compel them. All fifty states mandate from thirty to forty-five doses of about a dozen different vaccines for admission to day care and school. Public health officials proclaim that vaccines are safe and effective, but the truth is far more complicated. Vaccination is a serious medical intervention for healthy individuals against a disease that might occur. The decision whether to vaccinate has important, potentially life-altering ramifications. While vaccines protect some, they unquestionably harm and cause death to others. Government employees that do not to the Big Pharma agenda of low safety and high profits will get transferred, demoted or fired.
