I am behind on my getting my sons shots due to $ reasons and now that we're doing better financially I want to take him in to get updated (he's still under 2) But i've been hearing so much about a possible link between vaccinations and autism. From what I hear back in the day it was 1 in ever 10,000 who had it but it has skyrocketed to 1 in every 300-600 kids. What's the deal with that. I'm scared now, with all these kids being diagnosed with Autism or ADHD...pls someone tell me, am I supposed to not get my child vaccinated or just ask for a specific kind of vaccination? I am really confused, I want to do what's best for my little one and if there is a problem with the vaccines, I don't want to be guilty of putting that on my child.
