I've done some research and have talked to friends and family. We have decided to go with the recommended vacination schedule.

We did the delayed vax schedule with my son (recommended by Dr. Sears). We'll do the same with the new baby. I'm not comfortable with the baby having too many vaccines at one time, but I have no problem with them getting all of the vaccines over a longer span of time.

Edited to add: Our pediatrician has had no issues with the schedule we are using.

We vaccinate according to our pediatricians reccomendations. She is good at coming up with a plan for vaccines if kids need a special vaccine schedule.

We use the recommended schedule but deny any extras. For us, it has been easier giving a baby a shot than a toddler because they are older and smarter

I don't plan to vaccinate either baby or DS anytime soon. DS has gotten his TDaP vax, and we're leaving it at that so far.

I'm scared... a 7th grader in our town went in for a flu shot 3 weeks ago and 1 or 2 days later was paralyzed. how does something like that even happen?

Ladies who don't vax or delay them (different schedule) can you share any valuable info, books, websites?

We vaccinated DS and we're gonna do the same with this one, but I keep a close watch for any adverse reactions. I had a bad reaction when I was a kid to the 12 month shots, but DS seems to have my husband's immune system. He only had a slight fever after his 12 month shots and I'm still not sure if he was just sick or it was the shot.

Nancy, a good "official" website is the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.
VAERS Data
It might be kind of confusing at first, but once you figure out how to use the site (the website explains how to use it), you can see the percentages and kinds of adverse reactions to different vaccines. It has a TON of information.
http://vaxtruth.org/ Another website I have perused.

The way I see it, I can't really tell which side is correct--the "Vaccines are perfectly harmless" vs. "Vaccines are dangerous and should never be given". I figure vaccines can obviously be beneficial, but the stats of the adverse effects really scare me, as well as the stories of what has happened to some kids because of vaccines---ranging from a slight fever all the way to death. Because it scares me, even though the risk may be only slight for something really devastating, I would rather not give them to my children. I have also researched (via Wiki) the various diseases that vaccines are aimed at helping and found that most of them are not fatal and/or life altering. Also I looked at the # of deaths or injuries per year for the vaccine, vs. the # of deaths/injuries from the disease itself. Sometimes the rates for the vaccine injury are a lot higher than the death rates for the disease.
Just some things I've taken into consideration.

We vaccinate as well. Once kids are in school dont they need to be vaccinated? I personally would be more afraid of my kids picking up some crazy disease then them having a rare reaction to the vaccine. Thats just me though. I certainly respect those who dont feel the need to vaccinate their kids.

We do not vax. After reading the ingredients and seeing side effects increasing, we decided to postpone any vaccinations until we feel they are safer.
