Im up to date and I have very strong opinions against people who don't vax. I was also that annoying person who when pregnant made my mother, father, two sisters, brother in law, partner, partners parents, partners brother, two close friends visiting the baby and godparents all get boosters.
I only bothered to read the OP... and was responding to that. I've been around long enough to assume where this thread would go... and by the looks of it, my guess was right.
I have no issues with people being passionate about their reasons for vaccinating or not. I just have a problem with people calling others selfish and thinking that other people have the responsibility to protect YOUR children. No, they don't. Not if they think they have to harm their own to do it, anyway.
My valid argument and good point is I believe each child should be individually assessed based on family history, current health and risk factors and luckily I can do that in this country,
I classify my family as a low risk , no daycare, no working in environments of sick people etc, my neice had a bad reaction to her 12 months vaccines and yes it scared us, my MIL is a naturopath , we are an additive and preservative free organic family, we all take pro biotics and vitamins daily, we are extremely aware of our sons health and take it very seriously
until science shows me a recent study proving all 29 vaccines recommended in the current NSW schedule for babies under 18 months will have no short or long term side effects on my son ( no , I know there are studies on individual vaccines but none on all of them combined ) I will stick to the very well planned delayed vaccine schedule that my GP, Paed, naturopath and myself have made
Attack away, Im a big girl, I can handle it
People who disregard speed limits, send infectious children to school, avert the taxation system and refuse to vaccinate their child are displaying selfish, antis-social behaviour,
Lets not get hysterical ladies. That's hardly "name-calling." My opinion is that behaviour is terribly selfish, I am more then entitled to call it that.
