We need to have some ideas to get a little more activity around here But I can't really think of anything lol

Well I DO realize their are some misconceptions about vaccines & diseases floating around JM.
Eg - The Meningococcal Vaccine covers 4 of the 5 strains. The reason type B doesn't have a vaccine is because it's so similar to our make-up make & their isn't over or around 100 strains of Bacterial Meningitis. (But please, if you find out their is correct, me if I'm wrong.) <---

Anyways ... I really shouldn't lurk around JM lol It just makes me mad.

But anyways - Does anyone have any ideas to make this board more informative & active?

Hope I'm not stepping on your toes Terri!

The vaccine isn't on the schedule until 11-12yrs but is approved for use at age 2yrs. Our second son received the vaccine in December 2010 when he was 2yrs old. My son & thousands of other children prove that a vaccine is needed at a younger age.

Well, I think a post asking for links to informative reputable "Reasons to Vaccinate" websites would be good. hmm, maybe I will start one

How about a pictures post! I'd like to see some faces to the names
