  1. The camps should demand full, official vaccination papers for every camper & staff member, from the Director to the groundsmen. If your kid doesn’t have, he/she isn’t going.

    And cancel visiting day on camp grounds. Who knows what visitors bring with them apart from tips and more nosh.

  2. Stupid idiots brought this garbage to my area!!!! Get them out of here!!! We don’t need these Mashugana people who are against being vaccinated!!!!

  3. “We don’t need these Mashugana people who are against being vaccinated!”

    There are some people who can’t be vaccinated, such as persons allergic to the vaccine or infants under a year old. Worse, there are immune compromised people such as people getting cancer chemotherapy, or who have had organ transplants, for whom the vaccine won’t work.

    That is why ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE ELSE NEEDS TO GET VACCINATED!!! Anti-vaxxers are rodfim against the people I mentioned in the last paragraph!!!!

  4. @charliehalll. Guess you don’t know the people now do you. I’m referring to people who are against vaccinating at all costs. It has nothing to do with the ones who can’t be vaccinated!!!!! It’s the Mashugana people who just don’t care!!
