If you are healthy and develop a strong immune system, you should not be afraid.
the reality is not everyone has a healthy immune system. not only does it place your child at risk, but without "herd immunity", those who are ineligible to receive vaccines due to weakened immune systems (transplants, etc) are also at risk. this is how outbreaks happen.
Some viruses actually are more deadly for those with healthy immune systems (i.e. Spanish flu, SARS). People die from the immune reaction (drowning in their own mucus). SARS was treated with immune suppressants, which then destroyed the bones of some of the patients.
