    Vaccinations

    Noted a lot of kids with measles in Australia, Samoa and other places

    This was rams home the cost of not really knowing the dangers of not being vaccinated

    Yeah, nasty diseases are making a comeback because some people would rather listen to anti-vaxer rubbish than science, so they go around contagious and send their contagious kids out to mix, and infect us all. Just selfish and reckless.

    Vacation should be a condition of re/entry to this country.
    A few years ago, a number of Queensland Health employees contracted TB, from a recent immigrant. That was hushed up.

    Totally agree. Anti-vaxers should be told to either vaccinate or go into quarantine, since they are a threat to the rest of us. My father in law is totally deaf today because he got TB as a child.

    The current crop of hysterical (in some cases) anti-vaxers stems from Dr Andrew Wakefield, who got paid to 'cook the books' so to speak, to win a court case. His story is below. I wonder how many people have needlessly got sick/died because of this unethical asswipe.

    I am a 1941 model. When I was a primary schoolboy there was an epidemic of polio. A rumour of someone being taken to hospital with polio caused near panic amongst our parents. Not to play with kids from that family, etc. Cross the street and walk on the other side of the road past "the polio house". Our parents and grandparents went through the epidemics of mumps, measle, diptheria, whooping cough and would simply not comprehend the attitude of anti-vaxxers today. To them vaccination was both necessary and lifesaving. All primary school students in Qld. were tested for TB exposure and given vaccinations. Compulsory chest x-rays were introduced and mobile x-ray vans were sent around the state until the mid 1970's. Chest x-rays were compulsory for anyone applying for a government job. No argument.
