Response to Dr Hobbitstein (Reply #36)

37. No, the standard should be as safe as possible, not just "most." And that wasn't the case with the

old DPT vaccine, and yet the government dawdled for DECADES before finally funding the research needed to develop a safer vaccine. And that was only after a great deal of pressure from the injured parents you insult with the term "anti-vax" crowd.

However, for the sake of argument, why should any parent take a chance on a vaccine that is safe for "most," when the vaccine is for a disease that in my generation was considered a normal childhood illness, that for "most" had no serious consequences? Like chicken pox, for example?
