Would you let your children play with an unvaccianted child? Or would you even care to ask?

I saw this posted in polls and thought i would post it here too.\
My 2 cents: I dont ask, but my son is vaccinated so its not a big deal really, and with the number of children who are NOT vaxxed nowdays i would be really limiting his choice of friends if i made this a critera.. I personally dont agree with not vaxxing but to each thier own and to limit my son from having a friend based on this is just silly, almost as silly as not letting him paly with a child of another color.. and to ask is just RUDE! JMO whats yours?

  • If a child IS vaccinated then what's the worry? They're supposed to be protected. It's the ones who aren't that should worry.

  • Well I just found out that some of our friends don't have their kids vaccianted. Very young kids 4 and 6 years old. I did'nt understand why and I did'nt care to ask because I didn't know till recently.

    My kids and her kids played together but I did notice that her kids got sick offten.

  • I vax my kids. About half of my friends don't. I don't really care, it's their choice.

  • "Don't ask, don't tell" is my policy...but if I KNEW the child was unvax'ed...I'd be a little nervous. I SWEAR that Law and Order episode made me this way!! Damn NBC!!! lol

  • I have never asked. I think most of my son's close friends are vaccinated, but I wouldn't make my kids stop playing with them if I found out they are not.

  • I would have never thought to ask. He is 13 now, so I really don't think it is that big of a deal.
