of friends, where do your views on vaccination fit in? Do you find most people you know vaccinate on schedule, delay, or do they choose not to?
What about your family?

I'd say I fall in the average.

I only know one person who doesn't vaccinate her kids. So I know 6 children personally. Well 5, she's due to have #6 in a month so I will know 6.

My family has had negative experiences, my mom with German Measles, and my dad with Polio. So they're very supportive of Vaccinations.

On average of the city I am not sure. I know there is a large group of people who don't vaccinate, but I don't know them personally.

I don't know anyone that doesn't vaccinate their children. My sisters & I were vaccinated ... As far as I know everyone in my entire family is.
Anyone I know believes in vaccinating their children & doesn't understand why some people don't.
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.

All the parents I know vaccinate. My mom was a little skeptical after seeing the Jenny McCarthy hype on the news a couple years ago, but I told her that I'd researched it quite a bit before vaccinating and she trusts me to do what's safest for my children. (I feel fortunate to have a mother who doesn't try to tell me how to parent, I hear a lot of parents complain about not being so lucky)

I know one person that I suspect doesn't vaccinate. She and I differ on almost ALL areas so it's not a subject I bring up because I just don't really want to "go there" with her. I don't know if she knows where I work. I would anticipate it would create quite a conversation.

I know some mother's who don't vaccinate, or do selective vaccination. However, the mother's who are my friends all vaccinate on schedule. I delay mine, but only by a few months, it just works good that way for us.
