So I'm going back to school to finish (have 80 ours towards a bachelors),
and one thing I encountered is this meningitis vaccine bullshit.
Apparently, within the last couple years in Texas, a law was passed
requiring anyone under the age of 30 must get the vaccine shot for type c.
What do you think about this?
I hate the thought of getting vaccinated.
The statistics say that since this law was introduced, some 13million have had it. 4,700 had "adverse effects" and 8 died.
Now, I know those stats are pretty low compared to 13million but still....
I'm no manwhore (these days) so why the hell would I want to get a killer virus/bacteria injected into me???
Possibly due to the reason why most of the other vaccines are pushed...MONEY.
On a serious note, I think I read somewhere that meningitis was or still is prevalent on college campuses. I believe that the transmission is commonly seen in those students who stay in dorms and use the shower rooms.
(This is going off of memory, so I might be a little off!)
Yea, see I've lived in the dorms already, been through all this.

Rick Perry is a big pharma whore. I believe he signed a law requiring all females to be given gardasil (hpv vaccine) as well.
It's true. He did. People died...

You can refuse vaccines, my brother is a paramedic and he refuses to get flu shots and all other extra vaccines they try and push on him. I also do not like all these new vaccines they keep forcing on people.
How does he refuse though?

Talk with the advisors of the institution. If its required for a specific program, you might be SOL.

Most college kids are more likely to die from alcohol poisoning or drunk driving than brain bacteria...
