    Default Re: What vaccines did you select/delay?

    Delayed chicken pox by a year and didn't give mmr till 3 years old. My son is 5 and will be having his "4" year old mmr booster at age 5.

    Default What vaccines did you select/delay?

    I'm glad to hear so many other people are delaying. Jess I agree and this is where I have reservations about delaying at all. On the one hand I don't like the idea of injecting so many chemicals into such a tiny underdeveloped body, but on the other hand if DS were to get whooping cough/tetanus/polio (even though unlikely) I would just feel so so terrible.

    Thats the problem we all face. Polio isnt really a problem these days it is more in under developed countries. Chicken pox is much more likely to occur though, especially if your children are around others often.

    We are delaying varicella till 12/13yo. I see no harm in contracting chickenpox as a child but understand the probs as an adult.

    The definites for us were bcg, hep b, polio, mmr, rotavirus and DTP.

    I delayed chicken pox vac. For 18mths while I was researching it, a friend in the health field tipped the scales for me with the data she gave me so we got it done.

    I hate vaccines but generally get them done, although the ones that have been around for ages I have an easier time with.

    So far our kids (3mo and 21mo) haven't had any jabs, though I haven't completely ruled them out (my hubby is more on the fence about the whole thing but he is a procrastinator so unless HE decides that they need to be done NOW, we aren't even talking about it lol). We live in a smallish (<8k) country town so for us the risk of side effects especially given that our daughter has a few allergies, outweighs the risk of not vaxxing. We have had some cases of whooping cough around town though so I am careful about who we socialise with (we go to a steiner playgroup once a week with other non vaxxers but no day-care etc), plus tetanus is higher on the risk list given our lifestyle. Undecided about MMR and we won't give Varicella unless they get to their early teens without having contracted chicken pox.
