I think both will. This should be the last for a while for your two-year-old.
Also, "stabbing" is a tad bit melodramatic. Do diabetics stab themselves everyday? Should they all be in therapy? Not all vaccines contain live viruses, and most pediatrician's offices use preservative-free vaccines.
As for contracting a virus naturally, consider why we vaccinate in the first place. These viruses are incurable. They aren't like bacteria, which you can combat with antibiotics. Viruses use the DNA in your own cells to replicate. You can't kill virus cells without killing the body's cells. That's why almost every viral infection cannot be treated - treatment runs the risk of killing the host in an effort to kill the virus.
That may be a risk some moms are willing to take, but you should let other moms decide for themselves.
