I seen a post the other day by a woman saying that she believed that vaccinations were harmful to children and she was not getting her children vaccinated. What are your thoughts on this. I get my children vaccinated I just dont know how I feel about my child being around children that are not vaccinated. That is why I would like to see how other moms feel on the subject.

My daughter (5 now) had very few vaccines before she was 12 months old,and none since.And won't recieve any more.I do not want those unnecessary,harmful ingredients in her young body.We build her immune system naturally.And she's the healthiest child I know :)

Yes, but they are delayed. I never give more than one vac at a time. If I suspect ANY reaction that vac never gets repeated. My pediatricians complain, the schools complain, and I just smile and do what I feel is right for my kids.

I did selective and delayed.  My doc recommended it.  There is no study (that I'm aware of) that has proven a link between Autism or other disorders and vaccines (that hasn't been 'disproven') but I've heard enough anecdotal evidence of mom's saying their son or daughter was one way before getting the shots, and then got sick after getting the shot and never being quite the same that I am wary.  I got the ones that are most important and relevant and decided to wait on the rest.  Filling a tiny child with that amount of cheicals has to be dangerous in my opinion.  so we decied to take it slow.

I have 4 kids that I have had vaccinated.  We don't follow the recommendations perfectly as I don't like to give a bunch at once but they do get them all.
