We had a death from a child who was unvaccinated. We want to encourage parents who have delayed or refused vaccination to reconsider," Kristen Ehresmann, RN, MPH, of the Minnesota Department of Health, said at the news conference. "Hib vaccine not only protects your child, but also protects babies who have not completed their primary series or those who have immune compromise."

Mine is vaccinated. But, everything we do is a chance.
Vaccinate? You might have side-effects, which can include permanent problems and even death.
Don't vaccinate? Your child may catch the illness and suffer permanent problems or even death.
We make the best decisions we can for ourselves and our children. We throw the dice and take our chances. Hindsight is always 20-20. There are plenty of parents out there who regret the decision they make - both for and against vaccines.
