No this is a very personal decision for families and it should be kept that way. There shouldn't be any discrimination against a child either way. So to answer your question no, I don't care if they are not vaccinated.
As long as your child is vaxed why does it matter if someone elses child is not? Your child is 'protected', so why is it your business anyway?
no. aren't vax supposed to protect from things anyways?
No, as long as none of the kids in the class have compromised immune systems.
I do not allow kids who are not vaxed into my home due to me having family members with compromised immune systems who spend time here regularly.
I would want to be aware that there are unvaxxed kids in ds's class, but I would not want to know the names of the children.
people who are vaccinated against chicken pox can actually infect other people because that vaccine is a live virus and can shed after it's been given. And generally chicken pox isn't serious. Both my son and his cousin were happier while they had it and are sad they won't be getting it again.
Quoting Jenn8604:Yes, I did get pissed when my son who has only had the first chicken pox vac could have possibly gotten it from the kids who werent vaxed and at his school. Its like hes not old enough to get the second shot. Vax your kids and he wont get it. Just Monday I missed most a day of work to get my son from school because he had spots everywhere. Took him to the dr. to be able to send him back because it was just mosquito bites and chigger bites. No one has seen chicken pox in so long they didnt know its blistery puss filled spots not just red spots. But I was ready to fight some nonvaxing moms for exposing my child to something hes not completely protected against cuz hes still little. and his school is prek-1 and it was an older kid who had it.
