Measles outbreak in Manitoba and other regions in Canada
Our school sent out a notice last week. They are aware I am a student at the U of M but my son and I are up to date on our shots. However, I understand why some parents do not vaccinate their children (in some religions, and others, just for philosophical reasons).
With that being said, if this happened in your state/city, would you be alarmed? Do you vaccinate your children? I delayed my son's MMR until he was 5. He was fine, but I have two cousins who were diagnosed with Autism coincidentally after they got their MMRs. My mom said I was delayed with my MMR as well.
I understand the risks and complications with these illnesses but I also do not trust 100% giving your kids vaccines in the preferred vaccine schedule the government gives you. I would space out my son's vaccines in his first year. He has been vaccinated against chicken pox and got them last year.
