    We vaccinate our dog every year as well as give him worming/flea tablets throughout the year.

    And My son is up to date with his immunizations too.

    ETA; ive discussed this with 5 different vets at different clinics and even an RSPCA inspector as well as my vet nursing teachers. Every single one has said to vaccinate yearly is not just unnecessary but also excessive. If anything once every 3 years is more then enough.
    I've had this exact same discussion with our vet and they have said the same thing, that as long as theyve had all vaccinations in the first 2 years they dont need them again for at least 3 years, every year is too over the top.

    Our cat has had all vaccinations for the first 2 years and nothing since and he is almost 6 years old. He is the healthiest animal I know.

    As for my son, he is currently and will continue to be fully vaccinated.

    I know people that have vaccinated their animals and not their children and when I've discussed it with then they've said that they believe the proof provided that vaccines harm their children and there have only ever been benefits shown for the animals and people who own them as a result. I didn't really understand their logic and chose not to discuss further as I knew it would only cause an argument.

    I vaccinate my children to schedule
    I vaccinated my puppies and kittens to schedule, but do not vaccinate them yearly as adults
    I vaccinated my horses to schedule.
    I used to be a vet nurse and have done a lot of animal study, I don't believe yearly vaccinations for adult domestic pets are necessary.

    All our pets are fully vaxxed as is DD. My brother on the other hand, vaxxes all his pets but not his child. We don't discuss as we have such different views and we both get too frustrated with one another so it's a "no go zone".

    We vaccinate both the dogs and dd. I don't know of anyone who doesn't vaccinate pets or children... Sorry my opinion seems to be the common one.
