    Yes true. I feel the same about being labelled 'anti vax'

    do you think it has become 'trendy' (hate that word...but you know what I mean) ....to not vax?

    If a concentrated number of people in one area not vaxxing is it because word has spread - or due to other reasons?
    The whole correlation vs causation thing...

    Very trendy, right up there with amber teething necklaces and gluten free diets I would say. I'm going to get shot for that one aren't I!

    short answer- yes.

    In some groups.

    I think a lot of things have developed trend followers who aren't really that informed on the matter, but just think the overall philosophies of the parenting style they want to emulate are cool... so they combine all elements of a lifestyle which has been defined on some level as having connections with 'that' group instead of being selective.

    A 'friend' of mine had a bub recently and said oh we'll no one vaccinated these days, it's old fashioned. Theres hardly any diseases left anyway.

    I was dumbfounded.

    So yes, in a way.

    It's a weird thing to be trendy.

    I don't have any other friends who don't vax.

    If the "unvaxed" include babies and those from overseas who have not had their boosters, I wouldn't think so. Many people are unaware of boosters and babies under 1 are not able to have the MMR.
