    I completely agree with you, and a non-vaxxer should understand.

    THe thing with not vaxing, is that you're traditionally wanting the childs immune system to work without the influence of chemicals or engineered virus. That means exposure at the right time in a childs development. The right time to introduce viruses is NEVER as a newborn.

    Oops, sorry.Didn't realise this was resolved.

    And WOW, would be hard to reason with someone who has no actual reason not to vax. How irresponsible of her! (said as a delay vaxer)

    Sorry if I'm misreading, but are you saying those that don't vax believe, generally, that instead of vaccination, they WANT to expose their child (not newborn) to vax preventable illnesses to build their immune systems naturally???

    The scary thing, Atropos, is that some of them do think that way
    Chickenpox is the most obvious one.

    It is hard, Izy. This is a person that I found hard to understand many of her parenting choices. I understand why some people choose not to vax, but doing it because so-and-so told you not to doesn't at all fit into that category. I could list several other things that she does that are completely unjustified, but that's a whole new thread.

    Chicken pox, ok, but others... Dear god! I thought it was more of a piggy back off the herd type deal, or that most anti vaxxers were just avoiding the shots and taking their chances. But to deliberately expose a child to such illness... It's criminal.

    There was someone not long back saying that measles should be caught as a child, just like chickenpox. Ahh I can't recall if it was on bubhub or somewhere else, but it was ludicrous.

    Chicken pox can still kill. The idea of chicken pox parties and things of that nature is a very outdated and inadvisable one.

    (And I'm aware that anecdotes are not evidence, but unfortunately a family member of mine died at the age of 6 due to chicken pox, so I'm very aware of how serious it can be for something that people think of as a 'minor' illness...)

    I got a severe case when I was 11, I had a high temperature for weeks and had 7 weeks off school. I was so sick with the illness part (as well as being covered in spots). Took me forever to get over, even though my brothers only had a mild case. I've heard of other kids being very ill with it, It can still be fatal.

    I find the idea of any parent not making a conscious effort to keep their child away from sickness to be disturbing.

    Yes, it's still very serious, I agree. What I meant by my pp re chicken pox was just that I know about pox parties and that it wasn't that long ago that these were commonplace, I was just (naively) unaware that people would knowingly expose an unvaccinated child to say, rubella or polio.
