  • Not at all because I have had my kids around some of the things they are vaccinated for like chicken pox and this is more than once. None of them have gotten them so i am pretty sure they are ok. Now my 1 week old son, yes I am worried about taking him around kids not vaccinated because he could pick something up easily which is why we don't take him places we don't need to.

  • Nope. Mine is vaccinated, why should I worry if the others aren't? That would be contradictory.

  • Why would you? If you are so confident in the vaccinations, then it shouldn't matter.

  • I worry more about taking them to the park around other kids when they are too young to have finished their rounds. Like before they get the mmr...

    did anyone else see that episode of law and order?

  • Yes, sometimes but only because certain vaccinations come with certain ages. So if my 2 yr old hadn't been vaccinated for something and was around a 4 yr old that should of been vaccinated but wasn't, it worries me a little.

    I don't have a 2 yr old, it was just an example.

  • no, there would be no reason to worry. If you believe that vaccines work then you shouldn't have a problem with non-vaccinated kids.

  • Nope. I'm a firm believer that if they are going to get it, it won't matter if they have been vaccinated or not. Especially since I got the measles from the MMR shot as a kid.

  • I still don't worry. Actually, even vaccinated, people can still get most of those diseases. So, I just don't worry about it. And, about that Law and Order episode, if she took her damn kid to the doctor instead of letting her lay around and suffer, she might not have had her child die.
