I just read a popular post about vaccinations not being mandated. I believe that it is every parents choice to make the decison whether or not to get their kids vaccinated. Here are my personal thoughts on the matter:

      There are so few things in our kids lives that we can control, so why take the risk of potientally shooting "poison" into them. My son got the chicken pox vaccine and still got chicken pox.. Then his little brother who was 2 did, and so did his little sister who was only 4 months old at the time. So what was the point? Apparently there is none. So now I have to worry about when their going to start coming out with what side effects or defects this vaccination could be possibly causing in our children. I think there is definetly something that the pharmacutical companies are not telling us, and why should they? They can save millions of dollars in lawsuits by hiding what they know, by letting our children be the guinea pigs for these concoctions. I wonder how many of them get their kids vaccinated. Maybe the don't have to worry about it because they have the best health insurance money can buy, and they know all the top docs because they travel all over the country pedaling the stuff.  Kind of sounds like a crack dealer given away a small amount so when addicted the unknowing will have to return to buy what they need to feed the addiction.

Jun. 13, 2008 at 8:07 AM I've had this going through my mind for some time now. Every time the next doctor's visit comes up I question whether or not I'm going to let them give ds or dd the vaccine, and so far both of them are current with their vacs with no sign of negative reactions or any resulting sicknesses, but I still wonder if I should just quit letting them get them. If they don't get the and I have to go back to work, I coudln't even put them in daycare without up to date immunizations, can you get a passport to go into another country without that? I'm not sure, but I'll have to look into to it because we plan to travel. My son is enrolled in K12,  which allows me to homeschool him for free, but even they want up to date immunization records. If I quit the vaccines, then I'll also have to find a way to homeschool him. Financially it adds up quickly. It's a lot to think about.
