  • My opinion is I think they need them, therefore they all have had them... I don't care what anyone else does with their children.

  • I have my children--including the one with autism--vaccinated. They even get the flu shot. My son with autism was severly sick with the flu (the actual real flu, not what some people mistake for the flu) and he was extremely ill. Why risk that again? Why risk some of the other diseases? I won't.

  • We do all, but the flu shot.

  • We choose to vaccinate. In retrospect I wish we had delayed them though. I don't think they are 'bad' but I do think they give an awful lot at once and they give them before they really 'need' them. Example IMO there is no good reason to give a newborn a vaccine for Hep B unless the mother is Pos.

  • I choose to have my son vaccinated, but spread out. That is simply because I think there are too many at one time.
    It's up to other people what they do with their children. Although I don't like it when women who choose not to have their children vaccinated call those of us that do bad moms.

  • My children get them all besides the flu shot. I believe they need them.

  • Mine are all vaccinated. The only thing I don't like is how many kids get at one time. But, mine all had theirs on schedule and are fine. They had fevers with some of them but that was it. I don't do the flu shot through. I might because this is my son's first year in daycare.
