pro-vaccination article
 
I wanted to share this article I saw posted recently on FB: http://blog.mommeetmom.com/index.php...our-****-kids/ The author uses some very strong language, but she also gives some great scientific explanations/answers to the arguments commonly made by the anti-vaccination camp. As someone who vaccinates but was still slightly worried about the potential side effects of vaccines, I personally found this very useful to read.

This one? blog.mommeetmom.com/index.php/vaccinate-your-****-kids/
Lol, jm keeps censoring the swearword in the title.... change asterisks to the D word.

I wish she had given more info on chicken pox vaccine. My DD's pediatrician won't really talk to me about it.... just gives me the pamphlet, which doesn't sway me. I hate having to use Dr Google, but that's what I'm left with.....

Yeah, I agree, I'm personally iffy on things like the chicken pox vaccine and the flu vaccine, because those diseases just don't seem like such a big deal to me. Diseases aren't scary if I myself had them and lived. :lol: But, at the same time, with so many parents getting their kids vacc'ed for chicken pox these days, the odds of your kid contracting the actual disease naturally are pretty low. And you definitely DO want them to either have the disease or the vacc some time before they're an adult. So in the end we decided to go with the vacc.

Anyway, if you guys can get the link to work (like lil_fishy said, replace the asterisks with the d-word ), I think that the info she gives on MMR and dtap is spot on.

We plan on catching her up on chicken pox VAX when she's 12 if she hasn't had it yet. Getting chicken pox as an adult is deadly.

It's a good article. My kids have and will be vaccinated, the only time we delayed was when they had a fever and were sick at the appointment. Our ped had no problem waiting until they were healthy and that gave me peace of mind as well.
