I have three children, 8,5, and 5 months. I never knew I didn't ave to get them vaccinated. I am looking into some info on why not to do it. My kids always get sick after a shot. Can u tell me why u don't vaccinate? The older 2 go to public school if that helps any. They've never had the flu shot either.. We eat tons of fruits and veggies. Garlic every Saturday night.

We chose not to vaccinate for many reasons: I don't feel our bodies are lacking an adequate immune system. I don't believe it's healthy to inject poison, chemicals, animal and fetal cells into our bodies bypassing most of our normal immune system responses. knowledge of the diseases symptoms treatments and short/long term effects vs the vaccines ingredients, side effects, actions etc has made it clear to me that many of the vaccines either have a greater risk then the disease and/or arent applicable. I chose to full term breastfeed, focus on nutrition and exercise.
Check out the groups "chosing not to vaccinate" and "educate before you vaccinate" they have lots of great info in their stickys.

Thanks for replying. My thought was that how do they prepare or even go about getting the "flu virus" to inject?

For me, the vaccines scared me more than the diseases.

After two of my nephews almost died from vaccines I will not vaccinate my children.  We now go to a holistic doctor so it's a non-issue anyways.  He doesn't do vaccines.  

And my son attends a charter homeschool program.  Here in CA we just have to sign a paper saying we decline to vaccinate and that's it :)

My daughter started preschool in September.

Vaccines are not mandatory for public school. Every state has an exemption.

I know they aren't mandatory, I guess I was more worried about them bringing something home..

Personally I do vaccinate, but I know a lot of people on here don't. I'm not trying to judge you. I just feel  that I need to protect her and society. Vaccines have done that. There are diseases coming back that were thought to be nearly eradicated. Other diseases like whooping cough can kill a baby.
