  • Choosing not to vaccinate and Educate before you vaccinate

    Answer by stressedmomma13 at 8:31 PM on Jul. 20, 2010

  • Vaccinations are deemed safe by authentc Doctors/Pediatricians...graduates of Medical Schools. If you join a group, make sure the Moms have read and researched and aren't just victims of phony so-called Medical professionals who wrote bad things about vaccinations. Just my opinion...since I had all the shots in the 1940' kids had all the vaccinations in the 1970's and grandkids have had all their vaccinations/.immunizations in the last 12 years and we are all healthy. No autism. Just be very careful.....I would hate to think that your kids will get polio or measles or whooping cough...etc.

  • I happen to find Gertie VERY uneducated on why parents do not vaccinate. I don't base my reason to not vaccinate on autism. I looked at the ingredients on the CDC's website, looked at the package inserts that show the possible adverse reactions, like arthritis, diabetes, seizures, etc. I did years of research and decided vaccines are not the best way to go. Polio is spread by poop particles. The disease declined when we got indoor plumbing and started washing our hands, when we understand germs. Measles is actually good for building your immune system. Choosing Not To Vaccinate is the best group to join. Will help you out tons with medically based information.

  • Autumn I think that is what Gertie was trying to say actually was to educate yourself like you did. She is warning of doctors and medical professionals who do journals based on bad research or people who say no to vaccinations based solely on the autism issue instead of actually doing what you did and look at the ingredients and reactions that can occur.

  • One of the best placed to get information on the various vaccines, the laws in each state, which vaccine lots have the most reported reactions, how to report a reaction, etc, is the National Vaccine Information Center at

  • Why would you take the chance of exposing your child to the diseases that the vaccines are there to protect your children from? The reason there arent outbreaks of polio and measels, etc is because of immunizations. If everyone stopped immunizing their children, these diseases would come back with a fierceness all over again.

    Everyone has the right to make the choice to vaccinate or not, but to me, why would you put your child at risk?
