Everyone who bitches about vaccines should stare long and hard at this picture...
One was vaccinated for Smallpox, the other not....
This is true
I had Hand-Foot-and-Mouth disease as an adult, not pleasant, I was not vaccinated against a few things as I grew up in Eastern Europe in the 80's and there was a shortage. I also got Mumps as an adult, equally terrible - followed by Encephalitis as a secondary manifestation, landed up in hospital feeling like I was literally going to die.
So I decided to go and get tested for immunity to all common childhood illness's, and took vaccines for all the ones I had no immunity against - no side effects, and hopefully if I pick them up I won't need to take 1 week off work or land up in hospital.
Vaccines have their purpose
