    It's avoidable. It's selfish and I feel sorry to kids born to anti vaxxers who get these avoidable diseases

    This scares me as despite having been given the MMR injection on 4 occasions I am not immune. The doctors say I am resistant to the shot.
    My baby and myself should not have to fear going to a shopping center or play ground in Australia for fear of contracting preventable illnesses.

    This makes me angry. And sad. Then angry again.
    I can't add more than everyone else in the thread.
    Just hoping for a full recovery for anyone infected.

    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.[/QUOTE]

    You can have your 3yo have the 2nd MMR vax early....I did, not worth the risk with the increased incidence of measles currently ( and we were traveling overseas)

    Sorry if this has been answered....but an unvaxxed child can attend child care with babies who can't yet be vaxxed?

    Yes. As long as the parents sign a CO form that they understand the risks. This is the bit that scares me.

    Vax rates have gone up though - I think it's around 92-93% , a lot higher now than it was 5-10 years ago

    It is so wrong that by signing a CO form, they are able to accept the risk not just for their own child, but also for other people's children who are too young or medically unable to be vaccinated!

    Yep...

    I wonder then can CC centres advise parents of vaxxed kids whether there are any unvaxxed kids that go to the centre??
