So, if we had singular vaccines and Diphtheria was running wild, i'd absolutely get it, if it wasn't in sight, I wouldn't bother.
It's all on risk assessment. Likelihood of disease vs likelihood of adverse reaction from said disease.
Protecting him from the potential effects of vaccinating, the more I read the more I worry about the effects vaccines are having on human health, there are so many auto immune diseases they just don't know what is causing an increase in. I'm not taking any chances, I don't see how that is so much different to other's decisions to vax. I have decided to take a small risk of my child contracting a vpd to negate the risk of the vaccine, others have decided to take a small risk of the vax effecting their child to reduce the risk of contracting a vpd.
I have recently found some new info on vaccines and auto immune diseases such as diabetes that I will share when I get the time in another thread, it is very interesting.
luvmyboys - hugs to you. I know you value the safety of your child, that's why for you, you haven't vaxxed. I don't share your opinions but I certainly don't think you are a bad parent.
Believe it or not, I understand. I circed my son and did a great deal of research. I'm not some dumb bogan that did it to look like dad. Yet the judgment I have felt for being a bad parent has been huge here. Now I don't care, period. I stand behind my decision, stand behind yours
I'd love to see that research too. What journal was it published in? I'll look at it in medline.
On a side note, it's nice to see the thread remain somewhat civilized.
