My son is still 5 months away from coming, but we all know how time flys. I'm looking for advice and opinions on vaccination. I've read a lot and I'm actually horrified to put my son through those shots. What do you think?

Oh and yea on the mmr, theres a whole town, pretty much a catholic town, almost noones recieved the mmr I hear. Although most religions are against abortion, I think that catholic is the strictest on that. My mom was catholic when I was born and I had like no shots, per thechurch from what she says.

Quoting FoxTales:

Oh I definitely believe you re: mmr vaccine. :) a few moms in town don't do it. I just know the moms I personally talked to corresponded with my theory. I suppose polio wasn't the best example. There was an epidemic in Quebec with measles due to parents not vaccinating. In Switzerland they don't vaccinate for meningitis, and a good friend's niece almost died from it. Life is about risks, whether that is due to the risk you take to vaccinate or the risk you take not to... It just depends on what risk you are most comfortable with taking.



Quoting CheyennesMommy2:

Actually theres proof that polio decreased before the vaccine came out. I dont have a link, it may be on dhs work computer...but yea it decreased before the vaccine came out.





Also ALOT of people dont do mmr at all, even pro vax, due to the aborted fetus cells in the vaccine.






Quoting FoxTales:

we will be vaccinating, because I know how dangerous those diseases can be. The only reason stuff like polio doesn't surface is because people vaccinate.
That being said, chicken pox is ridiculous to vaccinate for.
And if my next child is as small on the charts as my son was, we will definitely delay the mmr with our next. He had a bad reaction, and the only moms who told me their children had a reaction were those who were under the 50th percentile. It is my theory, but it is also my kid.

Do what you feel is best. There are a lot of sites that use scare tactics, but there is also truth behind some of the negative reactions. Your child, your choice.

With ds i didnt research anything. I now regret a lot of what we did. We did vax him and he now has a sensory processing disorder. We do not 100% if it was vaxing or not but everything started after the mmr vax. With dd we did a lot of research and did delayed schedual for a few months but the more we researched the more we decided not to do it so we stopled. One of the few she did get vaxed for was the rota virus...which she goth this winter for 4 weeks...so yeah it didnt work. Im due in feb with baby # 3 and we will not vax at all

I vaccinate. Honestly, you just have to do your research and decide what's right for you. My aunt did delayed vaccinations. She had them do only one at a time instead of two or three at a time.

ETA: DD had all of the recommended vaccinations at the recommended ages and (so far) is just fine and has suffered no ill effects as a result of vaccinations. She's 5.

You think vaccines caused spd? Did you read that somewhere? Just curious because my ds has spd also.

I think you should educate yourself about them, and here is a list to get you started



here is a link to the inserts so you can see the poison they deem is "safe" to inject into your child

http://vactruth.com/vaccine-inserts/

here is the updated list of vaccines/ingredients from the CDC

http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf

Here are some questions to answer for yourself in deciding about vaccination:

1. Name of the disease
2. Description of the disease
3. Length of time from initial infection to end of all symptoms
4. Infectious period
5. Normal symptoms of the disease
6. Known serious consequences of the disease
7. Proportion of persons infected developing serious consequences
8. Transmission route of the disease
9. Prevalence of the disease
10. Treatments of the disease and efficacy of those treatments
11. Relevant research about the disease
12. Name of the vaccine
13. Company that makes the vaccine
14. Contents of the vaccine
14A. The significance of whether or not the vaccine is live
15. History of development of the vaccine
16. Known side-effects of the vaccine and rate of incidence of those side-effects
17. Possible side-effects not yet acknowledged by the vaccine maker
18. Relevant research into the vaccine
19. How effective is the vaccine at preventing the disease?
20.What is the vaccine meant to do? (Many vaccines are not meant to prevent infection or transmission).
21.Number of cases reported each year.
22.Number of deaths reported each year from the vaccine and natural disease.

My son is vaccinated.  He has had no bad reactions or side effects, his vaccinations didn't harm or kill him...while a disease or illness he could potentially catch from not getting those vaccines will more than likely kill him.  For our family, the benefits outweighed the risks and we made the right decision.

Whatever you do for YOUR kid is your decision, just make sure you research the benefits and risks and don't let anyone make that decision for you.
