I realize it's not popular to say so and I cant believe how many moms don't choose to protect their innocent babies and children from avoidable disease. It is also protecting our community to vaccinate. Please research and you will find that vaccines do far more good than harm. A great resource is Paul Offit Deadly Choices. Delaying vaccines has no science based benefit. It is your right to decide but vaccines are a luxury thanks to brilliant scientists and in depth study and research. All the best!

That would be like saying, I can't believe how many families blindly inject their babies with heavy metals and neurotoxins...but I'm not going to argue with someone who has made so many ignorant uninformed speculations in one post.

This. Exactly. Maybe if YOU did some research and sound what they put in vaccines then YOU may think different. How ignorant

Well when things like polio start making the rounds with a vengence again there will be problems. Whooping cough is just the start. But everyone has to make decisions they are comfortable with and live with the consequences. Don't vaccinate and a potentially life threating illness or vaccinate and risk an allergic reaction. There are risks both ways. We vaccinated on schedule because to us the benefits outwiegh the risks.

Which heavy metals are you referring to? A 6 mos old is exposed to more aluminum in breast milk or formula than vaccines. Ignorance is lack of facts.

Oh, you must not have seen the article where the CDC addmits that the whooping cough vaccine is responsible for the outbreak.

Also most kids with whooping cough have been vaccinated.

First of all, that's not even a little but true, second of all there is a difference between being exposed to something, and injecting it into your blood stream, bypassing every defense your body has.

Even if that's the case with whooping cough.. And I don't agree it is, that is one vaccine. There are others that are clearly not causing disease. If measles hits the US as it has in parts of Europe it's the non vaxers who have compromised community immunity.
