I was just wondering why some parents don't vaccinate their kids?? Is it because there are side effects....I just want/need someone to explain it to me! I don't want to be harming my children by getting them vaccinated. Thanks

Because of the chemicals in them simply put

*Some* children have had severe reactions to the chemicals used to make the vaccines.

*Most* children don't have a reaction, but there is always a possibility, and sometimes parents just don't want to take that risk. 

It's a personal decision. No need to put anyone down because of it.

It varies but some believe the possible side effects of the vaxes are worse than the risk of the symptoms of the diseases they prevent, or the actual chance of the diseases.

Some also don't agree with the ingredients used. I would do your research extensively into the matter before deciding based on what others say.

Oh, no I wasn't putting anyone down, I'm not here to judge anyone I'm not like that. I was just curious, I haven't ever really researched any of that before, I was just asking!

Well to be honest I have always done it bc of drs telling me I need to, but like I said I never researched. I have been seeing a lot of ppl say they don't and I was just curious to hear everyones opinion on it.

I don't vax for a lot of reasons but I think it's best for everyone to do their own research and make their own decision. I do my own research on any decision that I make even if drs tell me what I should do, I'll still go dig around and research it. I know children who have had severe life threatening reactions to vaxs, children who developed autism after receiving their vaccinations ( I know a lot of ppl disagree with this ) and I also dont agree with the ingredients used in vaccines for my own personal reasons( again something you should really look into and I don't mean just on the CDC website) and I just feel like the risk of my kids getting the vaccinations for all of these diseases that are Almost non exsistent is pretty slim and i also don't believe that a vaccination will prevent any disease or sickness %100 and if it won't then why put foreign substances into your body. Again just my opinions that I've come to through my research, it's a personal decision and I respect everyones opinions and decisions when it comes to their family. I believe that for the most part in this world all moms want the best for their children and will make decisions like this based on what they feel is best for their children, so no judgement here either which way you choose to go.

Oh no I know you weren't. It was mostly a blanket statement because these topics can get out of hand.

you wont harm your kids by getting them vaccinated... of course all vaccinations aren't needed, but they really do PROTECT your child.
