    I just think we all as a community need to be vaccinating our children to protect the babies and children ( medical grounds) that can't be vaccinated ( or are too young) I believe we all have a duty of care to our vulnerable!

    It's very very upsetting.

    Question: when is a child considered fully vaccinated against these diseases?

    4 - DS just had his 4 year old MMR and Dtap and the nurse said he's done now until his year 7 boosters

    Ok so historically I've been a bit "I'm pro vax but each to their own". But increasingly I'm struggling to support that. I'm immune to measles right now as I was vaxxed as a child so my unborn baby is safe. But what if my newborn come into contact, not just with those 5 kids, but whoever they have infected??

    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.

    Thanks!

    I think in that case CC should be seperate for vacc and non vacc kids until that age. At least give the younger ones a chance to gain as much immunity as possible before combining everyone. Especially when some families need to put their babies into CC.

    Maybe they read Melanie's Marvellous Measles at story time.

    I imagine if you tried to single out medical resons, and thus making a statement that they are more valid than religious, personal etc, you would be opening up a whole can of anti-discrimination worms.

    This is me.

    I think about the tiny babies and seriously ill children getting things like whooping cough and measles and it's infuriating and very frightening.

    So SIMPLY preventable.

    The truth is people that choose to not vaccinate 'just because' get that choice because the majority of us immunise, using the herd so to speak.

    This is when I'd like to hear from a non vaxxer. And I don't mean to have a pitch battle.

    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.
