For choosing to vax?

For us, it due to the fact I work in an enviroment where I come into contact with illness everyday. My concern is that I could carry some of these home with me and pass them on to my little one.

I do it just so my kids stay healthy and if there ever is a breakout, then I wouldnt have to really worry!

I do it to protect my children and everyone else.

Personally,I do not want to contribute towards the lack of herd immunity.Measles and mumps are on the rise again due to lack of vaxers and I don't want to say I had any part in it.I think it is my place to help protect society.Vaxs have done the world a lot of good and I don't want to mess with something that has saved so many lifes UNLESS I know mychild would be at serious risk if they had them.

I am very pro vax

I would say all the reasons above...as a teacher I come in contact with it all and some of the kids I teach come from other countries where these diseases are a real and constant threat. I also believe that we have medicine for a reason and although not all the diseases cause death they can change a child forever and if I can prevent it why wouldn't I.

Lastly I teach immunity and have studied it.......

to both... I don't think it is fair that many are choosing not to vax and putting others at risk.. it was the same when I was on bedrest during my pregnancies.. I had to go on meds.. have a stitch.. etc.. but the benefit out weighed the risk of ending up with no children at all

I want to protect my children from as much as I can, including diseases.

There are things that we can't control, and I think this is one that we can choose to do for them!
