Do you vaccinate..why or why not? Any valid links, info, and tips would be greatly appreciated. I have, until the 14th(next drs app) to gather research and make a decision. And if you choose not to, does the pedi give you crap?

Well I would just worry of outbreaks of awful diseases if no one vaccinated

 I don't want to get into a vaccination debate but I researched and found a doctor who I felt did what was best for my baby. There are so many options. You can vax, selectively vax, delay, skip one or two, or skip all of them. Some doctor's will not allow patients who are not vaxed.

We delay vaccinate, or don't vaccinate until school age, the selectively.  I will not discuss my reasoning though.  Never had any issues from my kids doctors.

We do a delayed schedule and won't lump multiple vaccines together.  Our pediatrician is okay with our decision but the group she works for is not.  So our ped covers for us to help us get what we want and what she is okay with.  She does not agree with forced vaccination and believes parents have the right to make their own decision and still have a doctor.  The doctors who own the group believe that if you don't listen to what they want you should find another doctor...ridiculous and childish behavior.  They don't have to like everything a parent does to be their doctor.  If you don't like it...make parent sign a form stating they are going against your advice and put your big boy/girl pants on and move on.

We fully vaccinate on schedule because I feel the benefits outweigh the risks. The risk of adverse reaction is extremely low.

We do vaccinate, but it is selective vaccinations and delayed vaccinations.  I refuse the H1N1, the flu, and the HPV vaccines.  Those are the only three my kids will never get.  That is just my personal  thing.

HERE is a link with the ingredients from the CDC and other info. It respects both sides, but does lean towards the delay/select/non-vax side, as it is obvious, the benefits to vaxing, if they work as intended.
