  1. Pls advise what schools are supposed to do!!! Who has to make that decision of “expelling” unvaccinated children???? They bring all their letters from their rov! Who has the say? What do you do if not everyone in hanhala is on the

  2. Does anyone know how many doses of the MMR we need before we are immune? and by what age should a child be fully vaccinated against the measles?


  3. It is more risky to vaccinate with MMR than it is to get measles. Relax!! Measles are good for you. Everyone got it back in the day and its the best immunity. Vaccinations are making you sick and need drugs and they pharmas love fooling you to get vaccinated.

  4. OMG, since measles are so good for you, I think you should volunteer to help out the family who has a confirmed measles case. You can go get yourself exposed, and enjoy the measles that are so good for you.

  5. It’s a lot safer and healthier to go through measles once a lifetime than to have to get vaccinated with a risky vaccine every few years. U can check the risks and side effects on the vaccine package inserts or on the cdc website. This knowledge is very public for those that care enough to read it.

  6. As a school director of a big cheder in Lkwd, & I was contacted by a so called ruv that I should accept kids from 2 families who don’t vaccinate, I consulted the Daas Torah we consult in our school and they we’re very clear that its Pikuach Nefesh to let them in to any public building or function!!
    I hope other Roshei Mosdes in town consult their daas torah on how to act in such a situation!
    If you think it is so dangerous for your kid to be vaccinated then “Home School” your child!

    • did you ask your daas torah about the janitors, bus drivers, rebbes, teachers and menahalim cooks, etc. if they ae pikuach nefesh to let into the builoding! Please ask them and let us know what the psak is.

  7. Yes we actually do ask daas torah, and yes we do know that the situation with staffing in the mosdes are not ideal, but there is no other options.
    But in the subject of Vaccinations we B”H have another option which is to Vaccinate!! and we will not put other kids lives in jeopardy .

    • what about all the unvacccinated adults/ I think they should be criminalized with penatly ofincarceratoin if they harm other people by not being vaccinated. (sarcastic)

  8. “situation with staffing but there are no other options”???? Why don’t you get all of your staff members to be vaccinated? Why do they get a free pass to come into the building but you are excluding two kids? Your das torah says that all these adults are not pikuachnefesh, but two kids are?

  9. Dont understand the panic with unvacinated kids. If kids are vaccinated then they will not vatch it from them. Thats why we vaccinate
