When new vaccines are approved by the FDA, do you then feel they are safe to give or do you like to wait and see for yourself as some of the actual public gets the vaccines

I confess I don't jump up and down excited to line my kids up for them - I like to wait and see the public's response. I am a skeptic by nature though.

I too wait. I generally want more information before I jump on bored. Like the HPV, I am waiting and studying for when my DD's are old enough. I havn't made a choice either way on that one.

For me, it would depend on what it is. The HPV vaccine didn't seem that useful to me when it came out, so I didn't get that for myself. I was delaying, so I didn't get Jamie the rotavirus vaccine and he didn't get rotavirus, anyway. Now, he's too old for the vaccine. If there were any that were really necessary, I might get them for him, but otherwise, I would just wait or not get it at all, if it was for something like HPV.

I think it depends. If it's a new virus altogether, such as Rotavirus or HPV, I do a lot of research and wait it out a bit. But, Kinrix is a vaccine brand that has DtaP and Polio together. Because both those vaccines are already "standard" vaccines, I'm not concerned. I'm actually thankful for Kinrix as we will be getting our Kindergarten shots here soon and it's one less needle.

It depends on the vaccine for me as well. Daniel got the rotavirus oral vaccine. I'm sure by the time my boys are teens, there will be a HPV vaccine for boys, so I will cross that bridge when we come to it.

Yeah...i'm not about jumping into vaccines right away. I have heard that a MRSA vaccine is in the works. Now MRSA freaks me out, but i defiantly wouldn't jump into the vaccine right away either.
