i have always vaccinated my kids and so has everyone i know...
i know there are alot of families that chose not to vaccinate, my question is why? i know sounds like a very easy question, but its just something i have never understood. if you can keep your kids from getting sick, why wouldnt you?

The preservative that is linked to autism is still legal in the US. It's called thimerosal. It is illegal in the EU.
Info on mercury levels in vaxes: http://articles.latimes.com/2005/feb/08/business/fi-vaccine8
My mom put me on a reduced vax schedule and I was hospitalized after my second vax. She stopped. Our family does selective vaxing in older children 16+. I did get shots for Hep and meningitis when away at school and abroad.
Also, vaccines are not 100%. Most illnesses are easily treatable and RARE.
