    The ones doing the spreading are the ones who are being vaccinated. The live virus sheds and can stay in the back of the throat for weeks.

    Amy Goodman could have had a medical doctor against Dr.Offit on the program…EASILY. Goodman and Offit are shills for BIG PHARMACY . Goodman got an award-pat-on-the-back from Harvard University because HARVARD UNIVERSITY IS BIG PHARMA. Goodman is a fraud; I'm still waiting to see the photos of her alleged "severe beating" in East Timor ……..

    The guest law professor is not exactly the ideal representative for the proponent of vaccination.  This is an emotional issue,  using utilitarian argument would not persuade anyone and forcing people to do things they don't want is just asking for trouble.  For one thing, it is only 100+ people in a land of 300,0000,000+, more people die in car accidents than that everyday.  Second, it is hard to imagine how not vaccinating ones own child which protects the child somehow hurts another kid.  She simply cannot blame the parents for being selfish, it is their right and genetics to be selfish. 

    The policy she should be pushing for is one that helps to rebuild trust between the public and the scientific establishments so that the public will be more readily convinced that vaccination is a good idea (and global warming is real), and less easily be taken advantage of by charlatans.

    Dr. Paul Offit, Big Pharma's Shill.

    Responding to a public challenge by neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock to take the same vaccines that he recommends for others, Dr. Paul Offit had 38 vaccine injections by his wife, pediatrician Dr. Bonnie Offit. In a statement before the 24-hour injection session, Dr. Paul Offit said: ‘As I stated in the October 2005, Parents Pack Newsletter from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia: My studies show “healthy infants could safely get up to 10,000 vaccines at once” and I intend to demonstrate this to debunk the false prophets of a vaccine/autism link once and for all.’

    Dr. Offit received 38 injections per square inch of his body in the marathon vaccine 
    injection session. He developed seizures and was admitted to Philadelphia Children’s 
    Hospital with severe cases of atypical measles, chickenpox, pertussis, pneumonia, rotavirus and encephalitis. This hospital issued a statement (facetiously?) saying that Dr. Offit was probably faking his symptoms, because scientific studies show that vaccines have been proven to be 100% safe and effective and never cause adverse reactions.

    From his hospital bed, Dr. Offit gave this response: ‘Now I understand how vaccines are injuring children and adults. I promise to work to correct the great injustice that I have personally inflicted on innocent vaccine victims. If I ever recover from this paralytic neurological damage caused by vaccination, I will work tirelessly to ensure that such a thing never happens to another innocent child.’

    Today's flip-flopping Paul Offit, perhaps the most widely-quoted defender of vaccine safety, is again going so far as to say babies can tolerate "10,000 vaccines at once." Offit described himself in a previous interview: "I'm the chief of infectious disease at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and a professor of pediatrics at Penn's medical school."

    Offit was not willing to be interviewed on the subject of vaccine safety in a CBS News 
    investigation. But he does have strong industry ties. In fact, he's a vaccine industry insider.

    Offit holds a $1.5 million dollar research chair at Children's Hospital, funded by Merck. He holds the patent on an anti-diarrhea vaccine he developed with Merck, Rotateq, which has prevented thousands of hospitalizations. And future royalties for the vaccine were just sold for $182 million cash. Dr. Offit's share of vaccine profits? Unknown. Undisclosed.

    There's nothing illegal about the financial relationships, but to critics, they pose a serious risk for conflicts of interest. As one member of Congress put it, money from the pharmaceutical industry can shape the practices of those who hold themselves out to be "independent." 

    The American Academy of Pediatrics, Every Child By Two and Dr. Offit would not agree to interviews, but all stated they're up front about the money they receive, and it doesn't sway their opinions. [?]

    Today's immunization schedule now calls for kids to get 55 doses of vaccines by age six.

    So first they put on LA Pharmaculture's leading paid shill with a fancy title and a strait face, then Rand "the Sellout" "Romney endorsing" Paul, then follow up with Chris Farley's unfunny twin sociopath, then some Iron Sky NAZIs on the moon casting reject who looks like a man and can't hide her old world accent from all the abusive face pounding that she's endured to keep her life partner. Give me a break. It's like an unfunny clown circus that humanity has been forced to pay for as a punishment directly handed down by the creator himself.

    @11:36 she says she's worried about a child getting a disease from an unvaccinated child spreading it to a child that has a compromised immune system….PEOPLE…WHY ISN'T THAT CHILD VACCINATED? DO THEY REALLY THINK WE ARE SO FUCKING STUPID THAT WE DON'T KNOW THAT PEOPLE VACCINATED ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO GET THE DISEASE, WHY THE FUCK DO YOU EVEN GET THEM IF THEY DON'T PROTECT YOU FROM THE GUY WHO DON'T GET THEM?????? IF YOU GOT YOUR TOXIC PACKAGE THEN WHY ARE YOU WORRIED THAT YOU WILL GET A DISEASE FROM SOMEONE ELSE???? HMMMM.

    If the other kids are vaccinated, how can an unvaccinated kid get them sick?
    What is the point of the vaccine if it doesn't prevent this? Maybe the parent ought to sue the pharmaceutical company in a hypothetical situation like that…

    This is so fucked up.  

    Liberals are bringing up lines like "personal responsibilities", and "who is going to pay for this", while the conservatives are bringing up "choice".

    extensive research and links into the topic of vaccinations and the associated criminal activity that has gone along with them for decades can be found in the vaccine katalist on the ureka website which can be reached via the link on my youtube profile. i am unable to post links in youtube comments as youtube simply blocks the entire comment (see: 'sandboxing' in the youtube product forums).

    many doctors, researchers and specialists stake their reputations on the reality that vaccinations are based on fraudulent ideas and science.
