  • Check out the group Educate Before You Vaccinate...I know several ladies seeing military doctors that choose not to vaccinate.

  • I think that not vaccinating maybe harming your child because others can get sick. like the chicken pox.

  • I'm sorry, I don't mean to step on toes, but I think the risks of vaccinating outway the benifits...just my opinion, I'm not trying to force it on anyone...that's why I suggested the group Educate Before You Vaccinate...then you can weigh it all out for yourself...it's a very personal decision and shouldn't be forced on anyone, either for or against...it's your own choice.

  • It is important that you do your own research; read all sides of the issue and make your own decisions.
    We choose to selectively vaccinate on a delayed schedule; First vax after first birthday, one vax per office visit, we had the doctor order single dose preservative free vaccines, we read the insert before allowing the shot to be given

  • You shouldn't have to justify your decision with the doctor. "No" should be enough. You are the parent and you make the decisions. They can't force you to vaccinate.
