I have vaccinated my oldest, but decided against MMR for my second. I'm not a nazi & I don't look down on those who vaccinate or choose not to. I just decided against MMR is all.. But hippie? Endangering the world?!

Yeah I know but the vaccines are not a for sure thing (and we fully vaccinate our kids). The kid is less likely to get measles if he had the vaccine but he still could have gotten them. Would it be less severe if he had the vaccine? Again, likely but who knows.

I personally try not to preach to my vax friends as well because I am not raising their kids. If they ever want the information on why I chose not to vax my son, cool. Otherwise, why can't they do me the same courtesy? I turn on the TV and there is this HUGE war on non-vaxers. I got vaxed for MMR and got all three! It could happen to anyone.

I think deciding against one vaccine as opposed to all and any is a bit different.

You make it sound like she is force feeding him anthrax. She's just doing what she feels is best for her child.

Agreed. But these comments were directed at the mother who they assume was not given the MMR.

She makes him get vaccines even though she has no legal right to do it.

I agree that kids should be vacc'd, but like others, rather not push it. its your kid, do what you want.

Eh, don't let it bother you. Someone will always have having something negative to say about your life/parenting choices.

But it's the vaccinated kids who are getting sick from the nonvaccinated kids....the bigger issue isn't who gave you the illness, it's that your precious vaccinations AREN'T working. And if you trust them so highly, then why do you people care if a child isn't vaccinated? After all, don't you trust that your child is safe?:twisted:

And no, she is doing it (as she is with EVERYTHING else) to get under our skin.

Because we have full legal custody and physical custody. She just has occasional visitation. For a reason.

Herd immunity only works if the majority are vaccinated. A vaccine isn't 100% protection, it just makes the chance of contraction much much less likely. How can you claim vaccines don't work? Vaccines have saved countless numbers of lives and have eradicated diseases.
