#2 almost as if a column of disease-ridden third-world invaders and a plethora of unvaccinated kids due to internet doctor Moms is.... a perfect storm

#4 So, why aren't the vaccinations protecting those who have them? If they were, then I would assume this wouldn't be an issue at all.

#5 Usually they do, lbis. This is coming from those yahoos that refuse to vaccinate. We lose the herd immunity if too many people are susceptible to the disease.

#6 And, in the case of Pertussis, what was once thought a lifetime shot needs a booster, they've now found. Had to get it with my last Tetanus booster

#7 I say this is unconstitutional. The MMR vaccine is made with porcine gelatin and the unvaccinated children in Hasidic families. And vaccinations are required for all school children, so why are migrants & UAM relocated all over the country without them??? Or is this another case of CF & the Gates Foundation purchasing diluted or ineffective vaccines made overseas, as in HIV treatment in Africa?

#10 The MMR vaccine is made with porcine gelatin and the unvaccinated children in Hasidic families.

That doesn’t matter — the principle laid down by the rabbis around the time of the Maccabees is that anything is not only permitted but required if necessary to save a life. (The issue at that time was whether or not soldiers could fight, which counts as doing work, if attacked on the Sabbath.) It is a mitzvah, which so often is translated as a good deed, but the Jewish meaning is that it is required behaviour, not optional. Thus it is required to vaccinate one’s children. Additionally, one is required to protect oneself and one’s children in the case of an epidemic, so by a second path of reasoning it is required to vaccinate one’s children. The exception is if the person will be at greater risk from the vaccine due to an impaired immune system.

As the rabbi at the ultra-orthodox Chassidic Chabad.org website writes in answer to exactly the question of unkosher vaccines:

in response to Andrea :
From the perspective of the Jewish laws of Kashrut, what matters is what is ingested orally, hence there is no issue of Kashrut with vaccinations.

Herd immunity only has to do with whether or not a disease can move through a community (herd). If vaccinated people don't get sick, then who cares whether or not something is getting passed around?
