I would like opinions on wheather to vaccinate or to not vaccinate. My daughter has already gotten her two month shots but I am not sure if I want her to get anymore. I would like to know pros and cons, and also why you chose to vaccinate or to not. Please HELP!

and theres online schooling to keep up with work, too

Quoting LilliesValley:

In our state there is a waiver but the kid has to be out four weeks after the last outbreak so a kid could end up missing a lot of school from not being vaccinated. Just throwing this in there.


Quoting emmy526:


all states but two have waivers


Quoting opinionatedmom:

 I did it in order for my child to go to school and do sports. It is required by law. It doesn't hurt anything and the only one I am against is the chicken pox vaccine.

Which may be offered in some places but not everywhere. I just mentioned it because its not just as dimples as getting a waiver. If both parents work and there is a chicken pox outbreak at your childs school they could be out of school for a month and a half to two months. That could be devestating to a working family. Again, just throwing it out there.

true, but my kids already had pox in the 90's, and my kids are done with school next year...never had to deal with an outbreak of anything.   It is something a parent has to consider...most nonvaxed i know would keep their kids out of school anyway, if a major outbreak were occuring.
