    Vaccinations have made me ill in the past because the adjuvants such as mercury overstimulated my strong immune system.

    The only time I took a flu shot was when I worked in close proximity to vunerable people. Shortly after, I and many co-workers contracted an unidentifiable virus that infected our hands and feet causing aching and weakness. Some were unable to walk for a few days. It was probably some monkey virus - these are commonly used in the manufacture of vaccinations.

    Therefore I won't be taking any more vaccinations unless I feel my life or health is under serious threat if I don't.

    Maybe you'll get lucky and it'll have good side effects, like marshmallow scented farts or epic mind control. Maybe even be able to melt someone's skeleton just by glaring at them.
    *fingers crossed* haha!

Getting a vaccine is therefore not just for you but for everyone you come into contact with.
    Awww...it must be so painful to be such an asshat all the time. My aunt is a microbiologist. You are wrong. Have a nice day.

    All I was trying to do was to straighten out some basic terminology. People were using the term "sick" meaning infected and "sick" meaning symptomatic, sometimes one way sometimes the other. They are not the same thing. If trying to at least get the terminology of the discussion right makes me an asshat in your mind, OK. I'm sure your aunt is avery nice woman. I worked in a university for decades and have a dozen microbiologist friends. So what? Look it up in a biology 101 textbook. What I said above is not wrong. Have a nice day.

    OK, one last post and then I am done with this farce.

    1) As I have said repeatedly, if you genuinely believe that the vaccine will do you or your kids physical harm, i disagree with you but will not try to talk you out of your beliefs.

    2) If you think you just don't need a vax because of your super Primal immune system, cool, roll the dice for yourself as long as you can quarantine yourself if you should happen to turn out to not be quite bulletproof.

    3) If you come into contact with other humans, I believe that it is the socially responsible thing to do to get vaccinated. IMO.

    4)If you believe in magic electrical boxes which "zap" everything from cancer to toenail fungus, there is no point in even having a discussion with you.
