Just curious... I personally have mixed feelings about the amount of vaccinations children are required to get at such an early age. But for the most part I have kids that have gotten their shots when suggested. How would it make you feel as a parent if your preschool or daycare had children in attendance that haven't had their shots. Measles, H1N1, Influenza, Polio, Whooping Cough, etc..
I know the dangers of the immunizations and all of those details so no need to go that route on this question. Would you be comfortable having your child here.
I visited a few pre-schools before I selected one for my DS. They all require proof of vaccination and I really appreciate this for the reasons described by Lifes-A-Dance. Peanutsmommy1, If Parents ask if the other children going to a Daycare are vaccinated, the daycare provider has to be honest. Why would they lie? I would want to know and have asked the same question myself. I brought my DS to a Library Toddler Playtime last summer. We were there playing and a Foreign man brought in his daughter. She was covered with red sores from head to toe. Around her neck & the insides of her arms where your arm bends inside the elbows were tremendously swollen the sores were bright red. I grabbed my Son and left immediately as well as many of the other Mom's & children. I have no idea what she had but it looked very bad. It may have been Chicken Pox although It did not look like it or Bed Bug bites?? I was pissed.

Cont: That is why I have fully vaccinated my Son. There are many people traveling to and from foreign Countries more than ever. They are bringing back in many of these once eradicated diseases. I had Chicken Pox very bad when I was 13 and what that little girl had looked nothing like what I had. I have no idea what it was and her nose was still running and she acted very lethargic. Here in the NY suburbs, there was a local Women who went to Israel on Vacation with her infant. She returned when her child got sick. Back here, she found out the child had measles which she had not been vaccinated for. The child was hospitalized and I don't know if she recovered. The local news put out an alert with all the places that the woman had visited upon returning with her daughter before she realized how sick she was. The Mall, Hair Salon, Restaurants, Daycare, Supermarket. That is how uncommon diseases spread. It is very scary.
