  • I choose to vaccinate but I understand that I'm not the end all be all of answers.  That's a personal choice and more power to what others decide.

  • I think it's a dangerous trend. I think that there are some children that shouldn't be vaccinated, but that those instances are few and far between. For most healthy children, it's completely safe.

  • I think it's a personal choice every family has to make for themselves and it's not my position to judge. I choose to vaccinate, so if those who choose not to happen to bring back diseases me and my family are still protected. To each his own

  • It is up to the parents. I do vaccinate my children because that is what I think is best for my family.

  • I think it's a personal choice and I have no right to judge those who do or do not vaccinate. I delay vaccinations because I've done a lot of research and there was a vaccine related emergency in my family two years ago (my uncle's nephew was hospitalized after his 18 month vaccines). I probably won't get DD's chickenpox vaccine because I don't believe in it (I got pox before it, right after I got it, and then a few years later, and my sister was the same way).

  • That's up to the mom and dad. I vaccinate, but I won't judge or belittle someone who doesn't!

  • I feel that most should be vaccinated but everybody has their own choices

  • I think yes, sometimes parents and doctors can get vaccine-happy, but vaccines are there for a reason, and if they are going to protect my child from a deadly disease I'm going to use them.
