No, I thought not, so what's all this tosh about modern vaccines and no progress since Voltaire? What terrifies you so much about a vaccine that's been proven to be effective for millions of people with very few and very rare side effects?
The NHS have saved my life on more than one occasion Barry and my dentist has also been very helpful over the years. I didn't say there had been no progress Barry, I asked Dex for an example, which he was forthcoming with (thanks Dex) I also said that the medicines have got more complex, and so have the illnesses. It's a game of 'catch up' we conquer one disease, and then up pops another....So are we any further forward really? People still die, as they always will, and as they did in Voltaire's day, the only progress is the fact that we can reduce the pain and suffering and extend life for a few years.
I would not rely on you to tell me when it was safe to cross the road Barry, I will make my own judgement when I consider it safe, and it's the same with the vaccine, when I consider it's safe to have the vaccination I will, and all the intimidation in the world won't make me change my mind. I object to be called an anti vaxxer and lumped together with people who have a completely different opinion to mine.
