  • Pro. I'm more scared of the diseases than I am of the vaccines themselves. And I think some of the research behind anti-vaxing is a bit misleading.

  • Pro. I Vaccinated all three of my kids, and they didn't suffer any ill effects, and in fact, a few years ago there was an outbreak at their school of Hep B, and thankfully mine had already been vaxed against it. But, I guess it's up to each parent to do what is right for their kids.

  • Pro-for all the obvious reasons.

  • Pro, I just never thought otherwise. They need them to start school, they had no adverse effects.

  • I'm pro vax. I've studied microbiology and immunology, so I fully understand how they work, as well as the risks, and I feel very strongly that for the sake of public health, kids should he vaccinated. My son is, and my husband and I are. Sadly, there is so much misinformation, and many parent don't know which resources to trust, and what the truths are, or the risk/benefits side by side. There are always some risks, but most of the time, any side effects or adverse reactions are far less harmful than getting the disease.

  • I am pro educated vaccinator-- I selectively vaccinate Natural immunity is my personal favorite

    Answer by MELRN at 5:02 PM on Dec. 29, 2010

  • I am pro-vax as it is MY personal belief that the vaccines are beneficial and do prevent illness/diseases. I do realize that vaccinating (or not) is a personal choice and I respect other mother's choices (be it vax or not) as they are doing what they feel is best for their child.

  • pro in general ..... with my future kiddos, though, I'll delay and spread them out more for sure.

    Answer by hibbingmom at 4:48 PM on Dec. 29, 2010

  • I am pro vax, as long as they are delayed & selective. I do believe in vaccinations for my children, but I do not agree with the schedule, nor certain vaccinations (chicken pox & flu vaccines).

    Answer by xxlilmomma09 at 4:49 PM on Dec. 29, 2010

  • I personally am A pro-vax I believe they are for babys good and that some illnesses could be prevented with them. However I'm not a big fan of the Chicken pox vaccine either.
