A Brooklyn judge on Thursday rejected the petition from five anonymous anti-vaccine mothers who attempted to block the city’s recent vaccination mandate amid the largest measles outbreak the city has seen in several decades.

And the city wasted no time enforcing its upheld order. As the judge made his decision Thursday, city health officials doled out the first penalties to violators, according to the New York Times. Officials sent summonses to the parents of three children for failing to vaccinate the children even after city officials determined that they had been exposed to the dangerous viral illness.


Good. You can either vaccinate your kids (and yourself) or GTFO. Either way is fine by me.

Well, the good news is that if you are up to date on your immunizations, that was probably unnecessary. Wise move, though. :up:

That's a good reason to get away from them too. If you don't, best case scenario you get upset, waste your time, and accomplish nothing.

I get a kick out of the people who don't trust the multi-billion dollar Big pharma industry because they are out to make money but do trust the multi-billion dollar supplement industry who are also out to make money but are under far, far less regulation than big pharma.

Yeah... but to be fair, there's definitely plenty of reasons to distrust the FDA, EPA, FAA, etc.

Yes there is. There are flaws in the regulatory structure that should be fixed but that is not a reason to trust a completely unregulated industry that spews more lies and blatherskite in one day than real medicine does in a decade.
When you buy some FDA sanctioned medicine you can be certain it contains what it says it contains. When you head on down to your local GNC or other snake oil store you are basically playing Russian roulette. You might get what the label says, you might get a higher or lower dose or in some cases it will contain nothing that the lable claims.
