Answer for question 4248.

What are your thoughts on vaccinations? Do you personally believe they play any role in the development of autism or other chronic diseases? What diseases would you like to see a vaccine manufactured against over your lifetime?
Personally, I don't get vaccinations because the flu shot contains mercury and things that don't make sense. I know I've probably been spared numerous cases of preventable childhood diseases thanks to vaccines, but at this stage in my life, I'm willing to wing it.

A woman downstairs from me has never had her teenage daughter vaccinated, but apparently doesn't understand the reason her daughter has never been sick is that she's protected by other people's immunizations.

I can't say more than this here because several years ago I was kicked out of an LJ forum for stating my views on vaccines—the forum wasn't about vaccination, per se—and since then I've been extremely cautious as to what kind of opinions I express here.
