hello, i think i have decided to go for single vaccs for mumps and measles for my one year old daughter. i wondered if anyone knew where was best to go for this in London? the childrens immunisation clinic on harley st? is there cheaper, does anyone know? also, would you not bother with rubella until the child itself is of childbearing age. ??
confused as to which way to go, even to have them at all. but i think i will do mumps and measles separately. aaaargh. confused

I have said all along that I want to know your standpoint.

I have also asked you several times to back up your statement about Joseph Salk. I would like to ask you to back up all the statements you made, but one will do.

RooneyMara, there is good reason to be concerned if you have a look at the poor framework behind vaccination:

So you are ignoring any requests for you to support your comments?

As a pro vac person, I find the certainty of the MMR most definitely reducing the severity of the illness in the majority of the remaining 15% unprotected by the vaccine a pretty tricky claim to prove.

Right, Seeker, I am ignoring it as you do not seem to be able to take it for what it is: A simple description of Dr. Salk about his own work.

And btw, Seeker, there is no need to answer my question anymore as I will be travelling the next couple of days and therfore unable to go online at all.

I wonder why the anti vaccination brigade are so...tricksy? Why won't they debate properly?

Interesting debate. No doubt very topical with current outbreak of measles in South Wales where large number of parents had chosen not to vaccinate their kids and babies. Now they are lining up to get their kids and all vaccinated.
My father was posted in Africa and Asia for work and my parents made sure we were vaccinated on time. I have seen my share of tragedies - friends who had childhood polio to deaths from brain haemorrhage due to various preventable illnesses including malaria.
I am concerned because I have friends who have kids under 12 months of age and they live in Wales. They will be exposed to measles even before they have a chance to be vaccinated and they did not make a choice to not get vaccinated.
It is ridiculous how some people want to be carrier of bad news (read serious illnesses) by refusing to vaccinate themselves and their kids. These people have no answer when you challenge them with scientific studies and data which shows that many parts of this world have managed to eradicate diseases by careful and persistent vaccinations across generations.
