This has been a big, hot topic over the past couple of weeks:

(there have also been quite a few threads about pregnancy and immunizations, you can search for those if you want)

I will be vaccinating my future child/ren. I think not vaccinating (when an allergy or sensitivity is not allready known) is akin to child abuse, and puts other children who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons at a huge risk. We need herd immunity to keep these diseases at bay.

No, it is a highly researched  science proven to everyone without allergies to vaccines, to be vastly more benificial that harmful and has help irriadicate diseases that used to wipe out populations or seriously maim like small pox, meales, flu, polio, tetanus and others. Whooping cough is mking a come back and has killed more than a few children in the last few months, all of which were preventable. Just search this site for Vaccines and see the fairly exhaustive discussion on it.

Sorry, but I have strong feelings on this one!  The anti-vaccination thing came because one doctor did a study, later proved to be fraudulent, that claimed that vaccines caused autism.  It has done incalculable harm.  First off, unvaccinated kids die from preventable diseases.  And second, vaccination protects not only those who are vaccinated, but everyone around them (including those who by reason of age or medical conditions cannot be vaccinated).  For example, whooping cough has recently had a resurgence, because so many parents didn’t give their kids the vaccines against it.  The more the disease is prevalent in the area, the more likely it is that people who can’t be vaccinated will catch it.

If that’s too technical for you, check out this video, which explains it in simple terms.

I’m currently PG and we are definitely planning on vaccinating our LO with all of the recommended vaccinations. That being said, we are not comfortable getting a bunch done literally at the same time so we’re working on an alternative vaccination schedule to spread them out a little (a couple weeks apart, not months or years).

Science!  Had I children I would vaccinate them.  Even if there was a shred of scientific evidence that vaccination is linked to a chance of Autism (which there IS NOT) I still would.  I’d rather have an Autistic child than not have one because he died from Measles or Polio.

My husband supposedly had brain swelling after an 80’s vaccine that later got revised because of too many similar reactions.  His mom freaked out, went all anti-vaccine and wouldn’t vaccinate his sister or give him any more vaccines.  (He was fine BTW).  His sister vacationed in Thailand (didn’t get any travel vaccines recommended for the area– cuz “vaccines are bad”).  She was hospitalized for a week and nearly died after contracting a disease there that she should have vaccinated against.  Even after all that, his mom refused to give him a copy of his vaccination record so he could supplement what was missing for our vacation.  He eventually just got all new vaccines and was perfectly fine.

My human children will be fully vaccinated and my animal children will be fully vaccinated.  Barring a life threatening allergy, there is no reason not to.

@nearlymarriedlass:  Ask your doctor how they did or plan to vaccinate their child and follow that.  If it was dangerous there is no way they would be vaccinating their own kids and I have yet to meet a doctor that doesn’t support vaccination.  Some support an extended vax schedule but I haven’t met a single one that said it was better not to vax.

I was vaccinated while preggo and have gotten my little dude all of his.  I fully trusted my OB and his peds, and if they say do it, I do it.

My kiddos will absolutely be vaccinated (barring any issue that would harm them with vaccination like an allergy). I am all for “natural” things, but we, as the human race, have worked darn hard getting our science up to speed and eradicating terrible and serious diseases. I don’t plan to let that go to waste, especially at the expense of my kids.
