    I'm immuno-suppressed because of my chronic renal failure and my third bub was prem and in the NICU for two months and I've often thought that many non vaxers must be in the privileged position of never having a sick, vulnerable child or an immuno suppressed mother, sister or friend because if they did, they would never knowingly put them in such danger.
    This post makes me so frustrated at anti-vaxxers!! Why should immuno-suppressed people, young babies, or anyone else with a legitimate reason not to vaccinate be put in a situation where they are at significant risk just because some misinformed google jockey has decided that their 'research' justifies not vaccinating themselves or their kids.

    I sincerely hope these blinkered followers of false science stay very, very far away from you, misskittyfantastico, and anyone else who is vulnerable to diseases we shouldn't even be worrying about anymore.

    End rant. Makes me so mad.

    Default Wowsers! Did anyone else read this?

    Reading the comments in the article, a lot of people questioned why her 3 year old wasn't fully vaxxed against measles, as she should have been by 3. Commentators seemed to think the author was a little self contradictory in that respect...

    That is strange but I have heard of delayed vaccinations for different reasons.

    The article says she had one dosage. I just googled the American vaccination schedule and they get one at 12/18 months and another at 4-6 years so that's probably what they mean.

    They don't get the second dose until just before school age (4-6), and her kid is 3.

    I love Hillary Clinton! That makes me love her a little bit more! She also once epically shut down a Republican on the topic of abortion.
