    Default Vaccination thoughts? (xp)

    I was just wondering if you girls will be vaccinating your LO's (or if you already have)? Why or why not? This is NOT meant to be a debate, I'm just weighing it for myself and would like some additional input! I did with all three of my other kids, but it's my opinion that my son Maximus was adversely affected by his three year old round of shots. His attitude and personality changed drasticly as soon as he got them, and because of that it's made me scared to do it again. DD still hasn't had that round of shots...

    We will vaccinate on the peds schedule.

    One of our baby sitters doesn't vaccinate her daughter. I don't really understand her thinking on it. We haven't really discussed it too much either. She did mention that a friend of hers child got chicken pox after getting the shot for it. (((shrugs))) I didn't want to ruin our friendship over it. She has had trouble finding a doctor that will accept their no vax stance though.

    I would like to say no to vaccinations but she needs to have them in order to be enrolled in any child care, so we will have them done. She already had her HepB in the hospital.

    (lurker, saw this on the recent thread list)

    Have you read Dr. Sear's The Vaccine Book? It's a good starting off point for information and it's easy to read. Just be sure to check out his website for any information that has changed since it was published.

    We delayed the MMR vaccine for Nicholas until he was 18 months so that we could space out his shots a little more. We will do the same with Emily.

    We'll be getting vaccinated but on a delayed schedule. I just don't like the idea of him getting so many different things at once.

    We will get all vaccines. I'm going to ask our doctor about a delayed schedule and if it would be helpful, but more than likely we will just get all on schedule.

    I do vaccines on the ped schedule. In all the research I've done I've found no reason to fear them but I respect other people's decisions on the topic completely.

    The only one I have refused is the flu vaccine. Its one of the few vaccines left that contain mercury. I probably would have skipped the chicken pox one as well but it actually prevents two diseases. You can't get shingles unless you got chicken pox and I have seen shingles do some bad things! For me, I think the benefits outweigh the risks for most of the vaccines. I totally understand delaying the MMR, that's another that still contains mercury. We have gotten lukes shots all on schedule, but I always have anxiety over it. It's hard to be a parent, you always want to do the right thing. That becomes very difficult when you don't know for sure what the right thing is!
