The law on compulsory vaccination of children is almost ready, the health officials still have work to do in terms of sanctions for parents who refuse to immunize their children. The school inspectors want to return to the old formula in which vaccination was done in schools and kindergartens (as if in some areas it was never given up).
Again, when the “herd” does not react positively to the directives, a law is “given”. But has anyone asked why so many have started to refuse vaccination? I suspect not, why look for the source of a problem if you can cut it off from the root through a law that makes it mandatory? And the climax is “Parents will be compensated if serious adverse effects occur”. What kind of “compensation” can you give sir, to a parent whose child has “serious adverse effects” ??!! This simple phrase says it all, which means that serious side effects can occur. Well, of course, I can, all vaccines have indications and contraindications. The life of our children is more money in the conception of the parliamentarians, can it be “compensated”? It’s aberrant!
To me, it sounded like: “Mai Tovarasi, I kept telling you that this is the way it should be, you should document yourself, research, and then I’ll oblige you and fine you!”
Each vaccine has contraindications and warnings. So how can something be mandatory for everyone when it is contraindicated for certain people?
There is also the problem of vaccine testing. How effective are they? Have they been sufficiently tested? But in 10-15 years, what repercussions will they have? And how long does the effect of a vaccine last?
For example, the BCG vaccine (anti-tuberculosis vaccine) is mandatory for all newborns, but Romania has the most tuberculosis patients in the EU. So does this vaccine help? The MMR vaccine, a recent study published by the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) revealed that a shocking 97% of children affected by a mumps epidemic that swept the northeastern United States in 2009 were already vaccinated against the disease. Full article here. In recent years, a real controversy has also erupted on the topic of autism, is it caused by vaccines or not? There are many studies and controversies about how safe vaccines are or are not.
If we still follow the EU … here is the legislation on vaccines from other countries of the European Union
In Germany, no vaccine has been mandatory, since 1982 according to the IFSG. The following vaccines are recommended for infants and children: DTP, Hib, anti-polio, hepatitis B, anti-varicella, anti-pneumococcal and anti-meningococcal. Infants are not vaccinated at birth. Only in high-risk cases is the hepatitis B vaccine recommended at birth.
In the Netherlands, no vaccine is mandatory, and the vaccines recommended for infants and young children are polio, Hib, DTP, hepatitis B, and MMR (MMR).
No vaccine is mandatory in Luxembourg. DTP, polio, MMR, Hib, and hepatitis B vaccines are recommended for children.
In Spain, no vaccine is mandatory, and the ones recommended for children are DTP, anti polio (IPV), Hib, hepatitis B, MMR (ROR), and anti meningococcal.
In England , no vaccine is mandatory, and the ones recommended for children are the DTP, antipolio, Hib, ROR and antimeningococcal C vaccines.
In France, the DT, antipolio (IPV) and BCG vaccines (at the age of 6) are mandatory for children to be able to attend school.
In Belgium, the anti-polio vaccine (IPV) is mandatory for children to attend school.
In Italy, anti-polio (IPV), tetanus, diphtheria, and hepatitis B vaccines are mandatory for children, starting with the age of 3 months, but since 24.09.1998 it has been allowed to enroll unvaccinated children in schools. In other words, they are not mandatory. No vaccine is given at birth.
In Austria: no vaccine is mandatory.
In Switzerland: no vaccine is mandatory.
I am not against vaccination in general, but I am against unconscious and mandatory vaccinations. Vaccination in the herd, in schools and kindergartens. We all know how these vaccinations are carried out. The nicely lined children go to the doctor (the one from the schools), enter the office one by one and are consulted quickly and briefly in the throat, listen to the lungs…. he is healthy … and ready to be vaccinated. But are the doctors interested in the antecedents of that child? From that quick summary consultation, does it also result if the child is allergic to something or has other diseases contraindicated from the vaccine? Not! Most vaccines require certain storage and transport conditions in order to maintain their effectiveness and not turn into an epidemiological bomb. Can anyone guarantee me that these storage and transport conditions can be ensured in our schools? Not!
The fact that in so many countries vaccines are not mandatory does not mean that they are not done, but that they are informed and everyone has the option to choose if yes or not.
In our country, although the law stipulates that for any medical treatment, the informed consent of the patient is required, we, among the few countries in Europe, will oblige parents to vaccinate their children. Are the pharmaceutical giants left in the guinea pig crisis?
