I did; I just felt the pros far out weighed the cons.
I will also say that my kids also vaccinated their kids. Wait, let me edit this ... I'm not completely positive that the middle dd has vaccinated her two youngest, they are 3/4 ... she really hasn't said and she has changed a lot about all kinds of things over the past couple of years; but ... I'd venture to say I honestly believe she hasn't changed on this.
I don't vaccinate.
I believe it's a decision every parent needs to research and come to conclusions on their own. No medication or medical treatment is one size fits all, or risk free. Good luck!
Quoting dingysfamily: I did; I just felt the pros far out weighed the cons.
I agree, the pros outweight the cons.
People now a days travel more, we get in the coutry more people from developing countries and we have more people traveling around the world, the risk of getting sick from something that is almost erradicated is becoming greater. how do you think outbrakes begin?
Since people have stopped vaccinating, there have been whooping cough outbreaks, among others. If we went back to the old days where people watched helplessly as their children asphixiated to death or slowly perished before their very eyes, it would change a lot of minds. To me, I would rather risk autism than suffering and death. I've taken immunology and virology courses for my BS in Biology and this has heavily influenced my decisions. Also, watching the film about how scientists eradicated polio worldwide is a lifechanger for sure!
