            If the schools are suppose to require immunizations before allowing kids to enroll then why are there so many kids without immunizations in schools? I think the government needs to make up their mind and make people stick to the rules!!! There is no reason why kids that aren't vaccinated can't home school! If parents want to make this choice then it is up to them but they have to suffer the consequences of having made that choice.

            My son is 23 and i always worry when pertussis season is here. He works in a resturaunt and is allergic 2 pertussis, the vaccine almost killed him, he was in nic u for 2 weeks cuz his body went in2 shock after recieving his first round of dpt. What can he do 2 try and prevent whooping cough? Hes at a disadvantage by not being able 2 get vaccinated.
