Would it be hard to accept if your own children choose not to vaccinate their future children? Do you think by that time, things will change again & more people will be vaccinating?

My 3yr old son Landan died 23hrs after being diagnosed with Meningococcal Meningitis. It is a potentially vaccine preventable disease. 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.

That would be an issue where I'd have a hard time biting my tongue! Can I just hope that they will vaccinate their kids, unless by some miracle those diseases are irradicated and vaccines aren't necessary any more. I'm not sure if there will be a reversal of the anti-vaccine movement, but I really hope so. Hopefully if they can pinpoint the cause of autism, the movement will at least lose a ton of ground.

I think in the end, regardless of my beliefs, its their choice.

I had my turn having kids, and I put into place all the thigns I believed, you know, there were things that I did/am doing with my kids that my parents really disapprove of, but theyre my children, not thiers. So I will need to respect that thought when my kids start their own families.

Same. I feel so awful for the non-vaxed kids who get the illnesses their parents could have had them immunized against. So easy for the parents to say whooping cough is no big deal if they haven't had it. I have - it's awful and scary! Sydney got chicken pox before she was old enough for the vax and even though it wasn't my fault, I didn't intentionally expose her, I still felt horrible about it. I can't understand a parent willingly exposing their child and hoping they get it when there is a vaccine available. If my children hopped on the anti-vax bandwagon I would not be able to do much about it, but I would wonder where I had gone wrong as a parent that they failed to believe science over hype.

I would totally not agree with my kids being non-vaxers to their children. But I would keep my mouth shut, seeing as it would be their choice.

I would speak up & try to explain to my child that it is beyond urgent for him to get his children vaxed
