HOUSTON, TX – A local family spoke with Fox News Houston this week saying they are not convinced vaccines are safe, as they lack any concrete evidence.
“There just isn’t enough proof for me to have faith in vaccines,” explained mother Meghan Reimer. “Maybe if there was an old book saying they are safe or something like that, then maybe I would believe it.”
The Heimers are all completely unvaccinated and both of their children are home-schooled. Both kids have also battled through the mumps and pertussis as toddlers.
“Joshua is such a fighter. He made it through his bout with Pertussis with almost no permanent damage,” bragged Meghan. “Some people in our church have vaccinated their kids which to me is crazy. There isn’t even a book written thousands of years ago telling them to do it. Why would you ever do something like that? Crazy!”
The Heimers insist they are simply being thorough and don’t want to believe in something without proper, scientific evidence.
“There are two things I know for sure in this world: following the word of God is the only way to live your life, and there is notenough evidence out there to convince me vaccines are safe.”
