  • This is a widely debatable topic. I think when one chooses whether or not to vaccinate they need to take into account their family history. I selectively vaccinate my children. My oldest daughter was fully vaccinated up until 4 months when she had a terrible reaction to pertusis that hospitalized her. I did a lot of research and my views of vaccinations are much different. I won't vaccinate until 2 with my other child and both kids will only recieve a handful of vacccines. adhd runs in my family as well. Make an informed decision don't be a sheep!

  • We delay vaccinations, and we select vaccinations, and we do single vaccinations instead of clusters. We do travel outside of the country, and this was a major reason why we didn't just say no altogether.

  • Yes, with the exception of Gardasil.  I don't trust that one.

  • Yes but not for the flu and so far we're not in favor of the HPV shot.
