I have vaccinated against all w/the exception of Rotovirus. My general stance is "if it won't kill him we don't get it" Still I research the disease the vaccine protects against and discovered my suspicions were true-chicken pox are very rarely fatal.
My husband on the other hand would like him to have it but refuses to look into the vaccine or the disease.
My pediatrician on the final side of the triangle is adamant that it be given because if our little guy would contract chicken pox that he'd possibly contract shingles later in life. My is wouldn't the vaccine put the shingles virus into his system as well?
Anyway, I'm not looking for a debate vax vs non vax, nor do I believe that vaccines cause autism, or generally have adverse reactions in a higher percentage of the population than is advertised, I'm simply looking for those who have chosen not to get their 15 month olds the vaccine and why. What were/are your concerns with getting the vax vs not? Did your pediatrician try to sway you?
PS *anon for a reason, and those who vax vs non vax know why!*
