Use Your Words


Jan 6, 2020

Vaccinations have been the topic of controversy the past few years with people believing fake studies to show that vaccines have hurt their children.  While it is true that some vaccines are unable to be used by some people (people who have an immune system issue for example, or too young as another) for the most part they have been deemed safe with few reactions to them.  (There will always be someone who will react to something - nothing is 100% hypoallergenic unless you're talking about air or water for the most part - and even then people have developed issues with them!)

 

Recently the state of Washington put into law that anyone without documented proof of immunization by the start of the 2020 winter school semester cannot attend classes to prevent the spread of measles.  Measles is more than just an annoyance - and can prove to be fatal, and with the lack of immunizations, the number of cases in the United States has increased dramatically in the past two years.

 

Let's see what is happening out in Washington
