I have a very real concern about un-immunized children that I've never seen addressed. If a non-vax mum can explain this to me I'd actually really appreciate that. I really do mean this in the kindest way possible.
I have a very severe allergy to pertussis. Contact with it results in me having to get all sorts of tests and monitoring done just in case. If I actually caught it, I'd have convulsions and almost certainly die. I repeatedly stop breathing and have blackouts and seizures for three days. It's a miracle I survived the bout I had as an infant.
Non-vax kids are a very serious risk to me. Did you know there were cases like mine when you made the choice not to vaccinate? Do you care that doing so puts others at risk?

My son almost died from his first round of vaccinations. Since he was given so many at once we have no clue which one or if the combination caused the reaction. I won't risk his life again with vaccinations.

The facts are the facts with major Vax. Where I live children need them or they can not attend school. The reason we don't see Polio is because we have been giving vaccinations since 1955. The same is true for the Mumps which its vaccination was invented in 1967.
Yes there are individual cases that have reactions. Yes, I think we should hold the drug manufactures to a higher standard to what is going into these shots. With that said I am a Vaxer.
