  • the thing with choosing not to vaccinate is this, come time they have to go to school, whether it be elem or highschool (if you plan on homeschooling them forever) they will need them for college. i am not thrilled about vaccines either and gave my babies what the "law" requires.

  • MissHeidi the law does not require any vaccines.
    There are religious exemption forms and (from what i have heard) many colleges are accepting them.

  • Pretty much any of the diseases you would not be getting a vax for COULD effect your child. But most are not as deadly as the CDC advertises, and given today's technology treatment for most of the diseases is easy to obtain and carry out.

  • • All children should get their first dose of hepatitis B vaccine at birth and should have completed the vaccine series by 6 through 18 months of age.
