Her unvaccinated status at the time was not due to a medical belief of my sister's, it was a consequence of having cancer and chemo.
    I don't know. @Tamtam may know what the case is here?

    Um I'm not sure. But for me when dd was so far behind due to surgeries and I got a letter from Centrelink/medicare about my ccr and ccb being affected .... Our paediatrician wrote a letter detailing the reason.

    It's very very upsetting.
    Completely agree. It's a community, societal issue, over and above being one of "personal choice" .

    I don't see why vaccinating cannot become compulsory. Because it affects the wider community. .. And the vulnerable (old and young)it is a community responsibility to take care of each other. I think this supersedes any discrimination. The greater good and all that.

    I would genuinely like to know how a non vaxxer reacts to this sort of thing. It would scare the cr@p out of me.
    There's a theory that basically categorises many of those who choose one "low likelihood, high consequence" risk over another perceived risk (whether scientifically substantiated or not) as being of the "it won't happen to me" school of thought. In much the same way as, oh I dunno, someone who exceeds the speed limit thinks they won't have an accident, or one that might hurt them or their loved ones, or anyone else they might crash into. :-/

    This doesn't just affect the child who doesn't receive the vax, it affects the entire community. I'm struggling to remain polite so will leave it there.
    ??? Have I missed something?

    The anti vaxxers are always silent in times like this. Or they will say 'My SIL's cousins friend was unvaccinated, and got measles and only had a few spots and a mild cough. It must be because of their super strong immune system because they don't vaccinate.'

    They are considered fully protected after they have had two doses of the MMR vaccine. Under the old schedule, the two doses were given at 12 months and 4 years. Under the new schedule, the two doses are given at 12 months and (MMRV) at 18 months. So depending on the age of your child, they are either protected at 18 months, or 4 years. My 2 year old has had two doses, my 3 year old was under the old schedule - so has only had one dose & is not yet fully protected.

    I used to be exactly the same. I am pro vax and had the opinion "each to their own" Then when my two month old baby could have contacted measles and then a few weeks later whooping cough my opinion changed.....

    Asking as i need to look at putting DD into CC at 9 months old (next June) and it makes me very uneasy knowing that things with these diseases are just going to get worse especially with most non vaxxers being silly and not vaccinating.
    Now debating whether to put off CC until fully protected or not :/

    I guess i am being extra paranoid as i nearly lost my newborn brother to not just chickenpox but also whooping cough.
