Re: “Vaccine Haters

I´d like to respond to a couple of your points, if I may -
1) The numbers cited in this article refer to the cases thus far this year, only: 118. This number is higher than any other year´s (similar time period) since 1996, according to the CDC:
http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6020a7.htm?s_cid=mm6020a7_w
2) What states? As far as I have found, Mississippi and West Virginia are the only states with ONLY a medical exemption (i.e. they have no religious exemption). Both have no reported cases this year, and Mississippi claims (at their st. department website) that they haven´t had any confirmed case since 1992.
3) These numbers don´t make sense. In a population of 100,000, with a 1% vaccine failure rate, there will be 1,000 individuals who are at risk (among those vaccinated). It´s no shock then that ~12 of the 118 would be vaccinated.
4) I don´t know why you´re comparing adverse reactions with death. It seems like apples and oranges to me.
I know vaccination is an emotional topic - how could it not be? All of us want our kids to be happy and healthy and keep them from harm. I urge everyone to do their research, and to have a healthy amount of criticism for ANY source. It´s hard to know who to trust and there are a lot of emotional arguments out there. I researched this and came up with my own opinion, obviously. I know that correlation is not causation, but looking at the numbers did a lot for me:
