Same here, and for the weeks before baby can get vaccine just be careful about keeping sick people away. Most people are pretty good about staying away from new babies if they are sick anyways...

Quoting amy31308:

No... Getting my baby vaccinated is enough IMO.

Nope! 90% of the people who get whooping cough are fully vaxed... It's not that effective for how many harmful chemicals are in it. Plus, it suppresses your immune system for two weeks, building antibodies to the vax...  No, thanks! 

HERE is more info about vaccines in general.

EXACTLY!!!! I do not want a person that got this shot and now has a compromised immune system who is more likely to catch every little (and big) thing out there to be around my child!

Quoting ForeverInLove:

Nope.

First off, none of our family lives around us. Even if they did, that is their choice. I would actually like to know when anyone gets a vaccine, and is going to be around my child. For two weeks after they inject themselves with poison, I'd like them to stay away from my child.

No. We got it last year when our baby was new because she had breathing problems so we needed to be extra careful. But now she is better so we aren't as worried about doing extra stuff.

No- we do not vaccinate so I would never ask someone else to inject themselves with garbage.

No.

We don't vaccinate at all, I would never want anyone else to get vaccinated just because of our baby.

No.

My husband is the only one forced to get vaccines because he's military.  The rest of us, well we tend to avoid them. ;)
