It might seem like classes just got out for summer, but the first day of school already is a little more than a month away.

And before students can go back to class, many of them need updated immunizations.

            @firebeam, that was very well and sensibly put. My thoughts exactly. Thank you (and sorry for the far-late post).

            Indeed, we have become a society of lemmings, taking so much information at it's face value without bothering to question or research that information. It seems that as part of the packet(s) of information given to parents from birth through puberty, the "requirements" are accepted by many as just matters that become part of a to-do list and having vaccines injected into our kids is little more than automatic procedure. Few question the need or bother to research the benefit vs. risk.

            I'm not suggesting that vaccines are good or bad, but for pete's sake, make an informed decision that shows you put a little effort into safeguarding your child's health. Don't just robotically check it off because it's part of some list provided you by some administrotor that hasn't done any research either.

            Granted it's tough to filter what is reliable and dependable info, but at least look. Indeed you can opt-out if you don't agree---don't let them tell bully you into thinking you can't. Vaccine policies are typically a matter of PUBLIC health, not INDIVIDUAL Health. Be informed---don't let others force their decision on you without knowing what it is you are accepting because it's from some "authority".

            TheWife, good point: The "powers that be" always present this information with a deceptive aire of Borg-like "Resistance is futile!", as if we live in the time of Hitler Youth or something.

            Just look at the sex ed. stuff that they're trying to force down the kids' throats in Helena right now. (See the recent A.P. article.) Boycott this Socialist, anti-Christ system! Homeschool your kids!

            Don't forget. You can opt out. Don't buy the scare tactics.
