Re: *Another* vax thread-Need help for aptmt tomorrow

So true! There is a ton of experiences on both sides of it.

My kid got the vaccine and almost died from it.....

My kid didn't get the vaccine and almost died from the illness....

I need numbers, find me numbers! I'm having a hard time finding percentages. And I found one link with state laws but when I clicked, page not found. Grrrrr....

Have you vaxed up until this point? We have been on schedule but the MMR scares me. Both my girls had mild reactions to that one.

Yes she is vaxed up until this point. I feel like such a horrible parent. I never knew you had a choice not to vax, nor did I even know there was a reason not to. I feel so bad for not logically making a decision before I let them put something in my dd's body that I know nothing about.

Re: *Another* vax thread-Need help for aptmt tomorrow

You don't have to present evidence to your dr. You just need to say "We're not going to vaccinate today, we will do it at a later time" and just keep repeating that if they try to pressure you. Don't get involved in a discussion about it b/c you'll feel pressure to cave.

And fwiw, I will never give my kids more than 1 vax at a time per visit.

Our plan as of now is to do no vaxes until 6 months-1 year, and the just one vax per visit. We will delay the MMR until age 2-3, the ck pox until age 8-12 if they don't get natural immunity, and the hep b vax until age 12ish. HTH!

I just went to my 4 year olds well check today and I said I was concerned about vaxing anymore so i didn't get any today. My ped told me that it was required for school here and that I would have to get them done. Do I have to have a doctor sign an exemption form?
