"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Slam! This is a beautiful response.
That's going to leave a mark. (I hope.)
This was needlessly vicious, and turned a teaching moment into a personal attack that probably cemented his own beliefs (whatever they are, the person's situation is not actually clear from this).
Welcome to reddit...
Not vaccinating yourself while working in health care is an needlessly vicious attack on other people who trust you with their health. Considering where the OP is in his career teaching moments don't work, as proven by his complete misunderstanding of the need for mandatory vaccinations.In other words, this eloquent smackdown is well deserved.
Shame is the only tool we have when reason and logic fail.
While I am against anti-vaxxers from the guys question it doesn't seem like he is one, he's just missing a single vaccine that that particular course requires and he thinks he was denied because of it so is looking for a loophole via the Personal Exemption law. The other person's reply is way over the top for that, and should be saved for proper anti-vaxxers, who do deserve it.
No. The particular field in which this Racary1 wants to operate would put him or her in the position to endanger other lives, and the stubborness demonstrated regarding a single vaccination surely means he or she would also refuse to take others during the years.
If only she knew that getting a Tdap is a lot easier than getting a lawyer.
I could have taken the follow up attack a little more seriously if at any point in it the responding redditor learned to spell "assess" and stopped using "asses". And I agree that there was only one vaccine missing, and it was likely a booster (AND the requirements for tetanus are likely changing soon to meet current best practice research). I assume the critical aspect of it was the pertussis, but I don't know why the person would just get the booster, if they were otherwise fully vaccinated, unless, as happens, their reaction to the tetanus aspect of it has reached the point of being unbearable (repeated boosters can cause increasing intensity of side effects. I won't be getting any more tetanus myself because of the side effects/reaction and the new guidelines)
