Vaccinations & Paleo / Clean Living...

Hello. I am very close to having my green card issued (lifelong dream!) but it is requested that I get vaccinated for measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus and diptheria...

I've heard and read such awful things :( I really don't want the shots... I'm scared to death and I just have this bad feeling... I'm considering not proceeding with my application and just give up on my dream :(

Honestly, what would you do?

Thank you so much...

Haha, I love spurious correlations. I looked there first, no vaccine data on there... Yet

Vaccinations do not cause autism. Organic Food sales do. Get Vaccinated, stop buying organic foods. case closed

You are more likely to be killed in a car accident on the way to get your vaccines than to come to any harm from them.

People ignore obvious daily threats to health in favor of focusing on much more unlikely scary, sensationalized ones. (MERS, SARS, swine flu).

Get that anti-vaccination nonsense out of your head. Yes, you live in an era where these diseases have largely eliminated, precisely due to vaccination! Should we go back to the days where every kid got mumps and measles and the death rate was 1 in a 1000? I would not wish death by tetanus on my worst enemy (I've held an animal dying of tetanus toxicity in my hands, it was awful.)

Even the flu vaccine has a favorable risk-benefit ratio. More people die and more person-days are lost to influenza than deaths and loss of person-days of productivity than flu vacination, by orders of magnitude (100-1000x).
