Re: MMR question for vaxers and non

I am thinking this for my youngest. I am a SAHM and we aren't exposed to a lot of children BUT my oldest does go to preschool. Would that be considered a reason to go ahead with the MMR vax?

To the OP, I totally understand where you are coming from!!!!! I am a vaxing mom (with the exception of chicken pox and flu) but the MMR vax does scare me, too.
