Weston doesn't have any vaccinations, Bastian got his last ones when he was like 2? Noah is the only one who had almost all of the vaccinations. Becca wont be getting her kindergarten ones, so she's UTD until those, I *think* the girls are mostly utd, but they wont be getting then ones before middle school.
SOMETHING is different with Sebastian, and I can't handle another child like him. I don't know what made him that way so why take the risk. Also Jayde got shingles after she got the chicken pox shot. The chicken pox, hepatitis, and HPV I wont do no matter what ever.
It took me til now to realize that babies don't get hepatitis. They don't share needles, they don't sleep with hookers, so what's the point?
Right. That was the first one to ring a bell with me, too. #1 had a reaction to it. So I read up. She had almost all the recommended ones at the time, even chicken pox. I feel like a dupe for that one. #2 got half, #3 got 1/4. Then I went to no shots at all for 4,5,6. Then when #6 was around one, I started back up with the ones that were older for the more serious diseases. So that is where I am now. I do polio, dtap and hib. I do not do mmr as I had a reaction as a kid (I have no firm opinion about autism, but something has happened to these kids. Also, infertility)
No way in heck fire will we do the hpv. My doc even said he won't give it to people.
We followed guidelines with my oldest but they just kept adding more and some of the vaccines she got were recalled.
Now we dont get rotavirus. We only get the flu shot when I have a very new baby.
Everything else is done one or two at a time. That way we can tell what they react to.
We never do vaccines if my kids are even a little bit sick. Everytime we have had shots when my kids were a little sick, they ended up VERY sick.
We also get the hep vaccines later. My newborn has almost no risk for hep, so giving the shot right after birth is ridiculous.
My general oppinion is that the regulations are made for the better of society in general, not for my child. We get vaccines because I feel like it is our responsibility to get them not because it protects my kids. I do wish they would do more non-biased research on what long term effects there may be from all these vaccines.
Theres my 2 cents.

You have no 'responsibility' to society. Do people think their vaccinated kids are going to get sick from your un-vaxed kids? Gee... then they must be peeeeeeerrrrty darn confidant about those vaccines huh?
Key points I liked were these:
The decline of disease is due to improved living conditions. Cleaner water. Advanced sewage systems. Nutrition. Fresher food. A decrease in poverty. Germs may be everywhere, but when you are healthy, you don’t contract the diseases as easily.
Q: Then we have the fall flu season.
A: Yes. As if only in the autumn do these germs float in to the US from Asia. The public swallows that premise. If it happens in April, it is a bad cold. If it happens in October, it is the flu.
