Re: From anti-vax to pro-vax?

I am anti flu shot. As for the rest of the vaxes I just don't know what to think. What research I have done leaves me feeling there really doesn't seem to be any really reliable info out there. I was given and read the same info WIC workers get. They lost me when I read the ones on chicken pox. Although I know it can be deadly for some so too can the common cold for those with compromised immune systems. The info they had made chicken pox sound as bad as the plague.

My older son did get whooping cough at 3-5 months of age. It lasted forever and was much scarier than the chicken pox.

We do delayed vax with full catch up completed by kindergarten but only because Illinois only allows religious or medical exemptions. Since we don't qualify for either of those we do get them but avoid some by delaying them as long as possible.
