    Am I Setting a Good Example...

    I vote this thread be locked, there are no double blind, placebo control, peer reviewed studies to support such claims

    Dont stray from the topic which seems to be a common theme on this forum. Note the first sentence of your response:Of interest, a few vaccines induce a better immune response than natural infection: Yes, a few! How do they prove that the vaccines offer better immunity? They can not. This response does not detract from my original statement concerning rude, unethical unlawful clinicians behavior towards people choosing not to vaccinate nor the failure of vaccine herd immunity. The responses to my comments have been childish at best. Wake up people, know immunology 101, learn the limitations and benefits of vaccination and provide knowledgeable, courteous, professional medical care to your patients without resorting to "bias, bullying, childish, harmful behavior". I'm done lecturing infants

    Vaccine herd immunity, i cannot make it any clearer As for herd immunity, have fun: " Vaccination stimulates an artificial, temporary immunity that does not last as long as naturally acquired immunity. Sometimes vaccination does not prevent infection at all but allows infection with few or no symptoms in the vaccinated person, who is still able to transmit the infection to others, which is the case with B. pertussis (whooping cough). At best, it may stave off infections in some vaccinated people for a limited period of time."

    typical drivel, refocus and state why you disagree with my quote. the truth hurts. why don't you cite to me and all the people who read this forum, why herd immunity applies to vaccines? why don't you show me peer reviewed articles that state that immunization is equivalent or superior to immunity from direct infection? you cannot argue with my statement because it is true scientific fact. read carefully, i said "vaccine herd immunity" yes vaccine herd immunity does not work. Please read carefully before joining a discussion.

    Thinkerdm did not discredit anything, he tried to re direct the point. He stated nothing directly pertaining to herd immunity and immunization. You can find this information in any immunology text book, far superior to peer reviewed articles. This does not require peer review, it is a fact. Scientific textbooks on immunology cover this subject in detail.

    Your "clarification" does not address my fact, it merely tries to derail the conversation to assumption of origin. As stated, this is immunology 101, and it should be well understood by all practicing clinicians. I see nothing in your drivel that disputes this fact. Please read up on immunology and vaccination.

    Interpretation of Labs

    Who profits off the labs being ordered? Who gets in trouble for fraud when labs are sent for profit? sometimes the answer you are looking for does not involve medicine.

    That is more than a quote, it is an indisputable fact. Fact, not theory. Basic entry level immunology 101 fact. My issue is not to vaccinate or not to vaccinate, it is the method of force and coercion that you promote to hold steady to your rhetoric. If you choose to close the thread so be it. Threads like this open up professional discussion of issues that are frequently misunderstood or never questioned. Where is progress without questions?

    "It's not just about vaccines, either, in that many, perhaps most, patients are too mathematically illiterate or emotionally impaired to be capable of making an informed decision." it is this ' god complex" attitude that is offensive and has no place in the practice of medicine. You are arguing against the fact that Vaccination should be a personal INDIVIDUALIZED decision based on informed RISKS, benefits and alternatives with the patient choice respected. This has less to do about vaccination and more to do with you believing that you know best and you should be entitled to make decisions for the masses. As for herd immunity, have fun: " Vaccination stimulates an artificial, temporary immunity that does not last as long as naturally acquired immunity. Sometimes vaccination does not prevent infection at all but allows infection with few or no symptoms in the vaccinated person, who is still able to transmit the infection to others, which is the case with B. pertussis (whooping cough). At best, it may stave off infections in some vaccinated people for a limited period of time."

    no intent to insult " Also, it's not just about risk to ME, it's about risk to my staff and other patients" how about risks of vaccination to the anti vaxxer? Vaccination is not the only way to prevent the spread of disease. Where have the people originated from in the united states whom have been found to be the cause of outbreaks? This is a good discussion that needs to be had. I am not anti vaccine, i offer vaccine multiple times a day to my patients. I do respect there choice after the risks benefits and alternatives have been explained even if i do not agree with there choice.

    You have a much greater chance of contracting MRSA from infected skin or PNA from an obese person and dying than contracting measles from a healthy non vaxxer. Where does this faulty reasoning arise from? is it do to inherent bias? god complex? belief in totalitarian society? Vaccination should be a personal INDIVIDUALIZED decision based on informed RISKS, benefits and alternatives with the patient choice respected, period. There is no justification to force somebody to have vaccines injected into there body against their will for a theory of herd immunity that does not work, period.

    why has it taken so long for JJ to be held responsible for asbestos in the baby powder? Why are there government funds dedicated to people injured by "safe" vaccines? Why was valsartan and losartan recently recalled do to contaminants known to cause cancer? why discharge a non vaxxer but allow your immunocompromised patient to sit in a waiting room with HIV, RSV, TB, ect, ect ect? all straw arguments. A person has a right to refuse substances injected into ones body. You god complex of thinking you should decide whats best for all is poor reasoning at best. People who have that thought process should not be practicing medicine. Vaccination and all of its risks are a personal INDIVIDUALIZED decision that should be respected for all.

    It is a constitutional right to decide what goes into ones body who are you to clinically bully an individual be it vaccines or any other treatment? this is prejudice being that you deny care to a "subgroup" of people this extends further lets say that the majority of "anti vaxxers" are jewish or muslim and refuse vaccination over religious purity beliefs, now you would be considered a racist and even an anti semite. your above posted view reeks of narcissism
  14. What was his field? who profited from the prescriptions? did others have access to his prescribing? a lot left out of this article. I fully understand prosecuting him for writing to a known divergent if that was indeed the case.
