To vaccinate or not to vaccinate?

Would you rather believe the petty research you read on the internet about it or actually ask a professional and look at the statistics?

  • I have my son vaccinated. I couldn't live with myself if he were to contract something and I could have prevented it with a simple shot.

  • That professional has done no research on vaccines. He listens to the makes that bring in goodies for using their stuff. He learned to diagnose ailments, not, research vaccines in a lab.

    Having said that. My child will get some, but, on a delayed schedule.

    And you can do more than "petty research on the internet".

    You should try it.

  • I would rather (and do) vaccinate even against my boyfriends family freaking out over it. I would rather know my bbay is safer against anything we can possibly prevent than lose the kids because I was stupid and didn't protect them when I could have.

    To me the vaccinate vs. non-vaccinate debate is like asking me "Your child is on fire... do you put him out or let it burn?"

  • Most of my "petty research" comes from professionals. I've read numerous books by MD's and numerous studies.

    I'll believe real research over biased research backed by pharmaceutical companies any day.

  • I would rather believe the FACTS, doctors, professionals and the actual statistics over propaganda and fear tactics... Which is why my children are vaccine free!

  • i would not blindly follow any one source. i always consider the source too! i will not vaccinate my children. if they want vaccines when they are adults, then they are free to do so! i just do not believe it is in their best health interests now or in the long run.

    Than it's not petty. =) Petty is when you get info from people who are not professionals.
