I'm surprised with your education that you would be that stupid actually.

22. One year of college, preparing to go back and get a bachelor's degree though.
I will be getting all vaccines, but possibly on a delayed schedule. Research has brought me to this decision. I just don't think it's wise to completely NOT vaccinate.

Your vagina is on a delayed schedule.

Yeah delayed sex. I'm on my period and haven't had sex in over a week. WAAAHHHH!
Majoring in Chemical Engineering.
I would like to think I have a pretty firm understanding on Chemicals and the effects they have on the human body/environment.
27. A GED and some college.
I fully vaxed until 2 months when she had a reaction.
My father, mother and myself all had reactions but it wasn't until my lo had a reaction that I stopped and started reading articles online then read some books at the library, joined groups and met many happy, healthy and completely vax free children. It triggered me to research and change my whole look on food, medicine, cleaning products, chemicals and government conspiracies.
28, junior in college, and don't vaccinate.
I did most of my research with CDC, dr sears, and all those sites previously mentioned. LO also had a very bad reaction at two months. The doctors that seen her wrote it off as nothing even though she had every symptom listed in the pamphlet that says to seek immediate medical attention if you notice one or more of these symptoms. Her ped even told me it was normal for her to react that. My gut instinct told me if we tried again with a vaccine, it'd cause serious harm or death. So I put in several months research to back up my choice and here we are at 14 months without another vaccine.

I've never had it. Never had the vaccine either...idk...was around it as a kid too.
As for the OP:
29, AA in General Studies and in my 3rd year for my Bachelor's in Science for Elementary Education with a dual license in ESL.
I fully vax on schedule aside from the flu shots.
I feel the benefits outweigh any potential risks. I've read many sites and sources and not to mention real life experience.
I am 29 years old, with AS in liberal arts and BS in elementary education. Since the decision was not just my own, my husband is 30 with BS in Computer Science.
With our first we did nearly all the vaccinations except flue, chicken pox, swine flue, rotavirus, and a hep one. Our pediatrician actually told us these were vaccinations she does not recommend for our specific family. With our current baby we are even more selective. We only did Vitamin K in liquid form for newborn shots. We are also delaying, at five months old she has only had two month old three in one shot.
Personally I am updated on all vaccinations except chicken pox, flue, and swine flue. My husband gets all boosters still and flue shot. No one in my family has ever had a bad reaction to vaccinations.
17 and some high school at the time I was vaccinating.
Vaxed on a very delayed and selective schedule
Mostly it just seemed like common sense to me, I didn't do a lot of research. I knew I didn't want her getting the bad shit, and I figure the flu and chicken pox vax are pointless and unnecessary, but it didn't seem like a very good idea to shoot 4 different cocktails of chemicals in a 3 month old's legs.
So we only did one shot at a time with several months between each shot. I took my doctor's recommendations as to which shot to get.
This time I'm 22 and have some college under my belt and am mostly the same, thought this time I've read a lot of shit about vaccines. Still came to the same conclusion.
