 What about the vaccines they need to get into college?

I wasn't aware of them until recently.

Vaccinate.  I didn't do Gardasil for my daughters, but did just about everything else.

I vax according to the AAP's recs. I think the benefits both to them and to our community in general outweighs any proven side effects.

I used to believe in them..but now I'm not so sure.. They are giving babies the hep vac now?? Before there were rare cases of people getting sick, etc or at least "what" we "heard" back in the day...but now..there seems to be a lot of questions about vaccinations being harmful..

Fully vaxed.... I feel strongly about it. The fact that i work in healthcare and have exposures to diseases and then go home to my children is a big deciding factor.

We dont vax. I believe they damage the immune system.

I think it varies child to child. Vaccines do help greatly but I can't stand firmly on one side or the other.

 Same here. I just didn't see the need to overload their little bodies. It cost us an extra office visit fee or two, but so what.
