Vaccinate your children or not?

Im in another forum and they are talking about whether vaccinations are good or bad for your child. I personally will vaccinate my children because I myself was vaccinated and I turned out fine.

  • I vaccinate because the risks are higher of your child being severely ill or even dying from something that could have been prevented.

    I've heard both sides...

  • I do believe in vaccines and my children are vaccinated. However I think that to vax or not is a personal choice and I don't bash those who choose not to vaccinate. I am sure they are doing what they feel is best for their child, and they have their reasons for not vaxing.

  • We do not vaccinate. The reasons why are far too many to fit within the character limit, if anyone is truly interested they can contact me privately.

  • I vax because while there are risks to it, the risks if the disease is caught if you choose not to are extremely higher and could likely result in death for some of those diseases. I'd rather face a small fever for a few hours than let my child die if I had the opportunity to prevent it.

  • anyways, that's how I feel about my OWN personal choice. some people choose not to because of beliefs, or allergies, or greater risks their children might encounter do to something else, etc etc etc.

  • We wouldn't vaccinate if the government didn't mandate it...but my husband and I both have to work full time, so our little one goes to daycare. Daycare follows the government regulations, so the government made our choice for us. HOWEVER... we are ONLY getting the vax's that are mandated, and NONE of the others. We are also staggering and delaying ALL vaccinations as much as possible.
