I'm doing, yet again, my research on vaccines and have a question I can't seem to find the answer to. My guess is there probably isn't one, but on the off chance that there is can anyone tell me the number of people who get the diseases who are unvaccinated vs. the number who get it vaccinated? I came across research about the rates of other "normal" illnesses in vaccinated vs unvaccinated and was kinda surprised but it raised this question and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere.

yes, If there's links to the studies as well I'd love to see them though

But as I said, numbers don't accurately reflect anything because they fail to take other critical aspects into consideration. If you base your decisions purely on numbers, you are not doing your research.



So you are after the numbers for ALL vaccinated diseases? Just to clarify.

I'm a numbers person. What I'm interested in knowing is how many people get any disease that's vaccinated for whether vaccinated or unvaccinated. I'm well aware of what all the diseases do.

As Renai said, it depends on which disease you are talking of. However, statistics don't necessarily show the SEVERITY of the illness either, so you should never read statistics like this without a whole wealth of other information at hand. For instance, it isn't uncommon for kids who have had the Chicken pox vaccine to contract the disease. However, it has been shown that the severity of the illness is far less if a child has been vaccinated, and complications of the disease are unlikely. If you do research on the cases of chicken pox which have suffered complications, you will find that it is unvaccinated children who have the complications.

Not sure what vaccine your talkign about they vary. Even if person is vaccinated there is a small chance they can still contact some of the diseases. My own thought is that children should be vaccinated. Not only will they be ill if they contact something but others such as baby's under two months and elderly who have not been vaccinated either if they come in contact can have deadly results. i know this issue has been a huge subject in areas but i know a few people who did not vaccinate there children and they all have some issue wrong with them. maybe is just coincidence but one is sick all the time , one has skin rashes, one has eczema just to name a few. i'd rather take my chances of them making my child sick once then having to deal with the diseases/ illness that may come later in life.
