    more than a third of parents don't want their kids to have Swine Flu shots! Way to increase the chances of a real epidemic, folks.

    There are, of course, dangers and side effects with any vaccination (some people even die of the very disease for which they've been inoculated), but yes, over the whole population of the USA, we'd be much better off if everyone who should get one, does get one.

    Unless I had a child with a medical condition that put them at greater risk I would never have them get "routine" seasonal flu vaccinations. Immune systems are depressed by vaccines, and especially for a developing child this could have long term ramifications when defending against diseases like cancer.

    You wouldn't want to be the person born after several generations of ancestors who were vaccinated for every bug that came along. Trust me.

    Pego, smack him!!

    There's plenty of pathogens to go around, and the reason snot-nosed kids are so snotty is because there are so many things we can't or don't prevent. Things like mumps, measles, and even flu do NOT need to be experienced if we can prevent them.

    Where you ARE correct is the alarming increase in allergies. I do think that comes from not exposing ourselves to the environment more as a child.
