Yes for things my child could easily catch and get very sick or die from like whooping cough. No for things that my child has no chance of catching like Hep B. Unless my baby-to-be has intentions of having extremely underage intercourse or sharing needles with the rebel kids at day care, then that one is kind of unneccesary until a little later in life.

I am not sure I will vaccinate. I am not against it–I just haven’t researched it enough.
My thoughts are that:
we are TOLD that it is safe. Everyone wants proof against it, I want proof it is safe
We are told it has no complications. Everything has side effects.
ITS FREE for a reason. They want us to have it. WHY? NOTHING is free from them.

@Mollie-Rose: I would say HepB could quite easily be contracted in childhood – Grazed knees, nose bleeds etc. Its not spread just through sex and drug use 90% of hep b infections can become lifelong chronic illnesses.

Do you think Measles, Mumps, rubella, Polio, small pox, etc went away by themselves?!!! The rates decrease because if everyone gets vaccinated, there is no one for these diseases to replicate. There ARE still rates of all these terrible illnesses…but guess what? They are in children who weren’t vaccinagted.
Benefits outweigh risks in almost all cases.
What are your concerns??????
Your immune system can only go so far….if you think being healthy will save you and your children from life-threatening diseases, you are being naive.

@Candace From BC: its FREE because we dont want EPIDEMICS!!!!! these diseases have been eridicated BECAUSE OF VACCINES. If there are no carriers, viruses cant spread…..There are many studies that you can find on PubMed, Google Scholar, etc.

i never thought of not doing it! it just seems like the right thing to do, plus you can’s go to school here ( ontario,canada) without your needles.

@Candace From BC: Yeah, I’m with you on this one.
My brother didn’t vaccinate his son. He’s skiddish about how much the kid is getting, and I can’t blame him. When we were getting our shots there were far less.
I know some parents are pushing the shots off until later in life and are spreading them out. Or they are picking and choosing what their kid gets. I might do a 1970s vaccination schedule with chicken pox thrown on for good measure. I don’t think I would get them vaccinated against Hepatitis B & A.
I mean as a kid I got 7. As it stands today my kid could get 14. Thats a lot of stuff pumping through their bodies.
As a teacher I see a lot of kids with Autism. I have to sit back and wonder why. I’m not saying there is a link, but why do so many kids have it? Makes me question. Makes me wonder whats up.
I dunno its a lot to think about for sure.
