While local sports enthusiasts rave that Mississippi is No. 1 in something other than obesity and teen pregnancy, the state has slid into first place in more than football in recent months. Mississippi has the highest rate of vaccinations.
But vaccination-rights activists like MaryJo Perry, co-director of Mississippi Parents for Vaccine Rights, claim this is not necessarily something to brag about.
Mississippi, however, has significantly fewer medical exemptions granted than surrounding states-16 in 2011.
Interesting that they would allow this mom to have this kind of coverage. Of course the story doesn't mention the lack of liability on the part of the vaccine promoters. I guess the message here is that WE ALL MUST VACCINATE... too bad if your child can't handle it. We'll still fight you on it.
"Mississippi, however, has significantly fewer medical exemptions granted than surrounding states-16 in 2011."
"GULP" ...Sixteen medical exemptions in the whole state? (Do they vaccinate anything that moves in MS?)
