We did them all, exept for the Chicken Pox and Gardasil (too new, too untested, kids damaged/killed in other countries) and we avoid the Flu shot every year. Otherwise we're up to date.
We fully vax. I'm a nurse and feel that the benefits outweigh the risks.
I vaccinate on schedule. We do not get Guaradsil or flu shots though. I vaccinate my children because I don't want them maimed or dead from preventable diseases and I feel the benefits of the vaccines far outway the potential problems that could pop up. I have 4 children and all of them have been given the recommended vaccines on schedule and not one of them has had an adverse reaction beyond a slight fever.
I vaccinate. And my little man (age 10) will be getting the flu shot again this year. He has been sick on and off since school started so I am not taking any chances. He usually ends up with a nebulizer for the common cold.
