Question Spinoff-Do you vax... (non-vaxers)

I'm curious about those of you that have chosen not to vax, or stop vaxing...

Do your friends and family know about your decision?

I ask because I saw in a lot of the replies to the other thread how many people get a hard time from friends and family for choosing not to vax.

**poll is coming**

Re: Spinoff-Do you vax... (non-vaxers)

Some of our friends and family know. And most of them have not been rude about it, or questioned us. I have one friend that always argues with me about it (friendly banter), but she is also the same friend that said I should circ Noah so he would look the same as Daddy and big brother.

One of my cousins and his wife don't vax and my Aunt made a comment about how "weird" they were once, and that was the reason she gave. I told her, "We don't vax, either", and she shut right up. Oops.

I haven't told my Mom. I think she'd flip out. However, she is the designated person to take our kids should anything happen to us, so we DO have it written in our will that vaccines are a no-no.

Re: Spinoff-Do you vax... (non-vaxers)

Some of my family knows. I got a really really hard time about it. They think I am an ignorant to choose to allow my daughter to get deadly diseases I just tell them I am a little more educated on the matter than them and I wouldnt do this if I didnt have facts to back me up.

The inlaws don't know yet, I do need to talk to them about it though. Our dd is being left to them if something where to happen to us and I would hope they would continue not vaxing.

Everyone knows. None of the them like it, and my mom thinks I'm looney and won't talk to me... but oh well, her loss.

Friends who are like-minded know. My family has never asked, so no, they don't know either. But they think we're weird anyway.

Re: Spinoff-Do you vax... (non-vaxers)

I don't volunteer my children's vax status. It's not anyone else's business whether I choose to vax or not. If they ask and it's with the intent to be educated, I might disclose their status, but if it's just for shiggles, then I ask them why they need to know.

I have told a few friends but my family doesn't know. My mom would probably not talk to me for awhile then lecture me to the extreme.

Re: Spinoff-Do you vax... (non-vaxers)

my parents know, DS's aunt knows (she also doesnt vax, she is the one who helped me finalize my decision), and one of my close friends, who is also a mom, knows. Otherwise I keep it to myself. I don't think it's anybodies business and honestly I don't want to deal with the reactions I may get from others. the reason my friend knows is because she brought up the topic lol.
