My daughter isn't due for it yet but she will get it. My boss(doctor) and his wife(microbiologist) told me that bad reactions aren't something to be too worried about. There are only a small percentage of babies that have bad reactions. They basically told me that if your baby does have a bad reaction to a vaccine, it is far less severe than if the baby got the illness. Most babies that have any reaction at all get a slight fever or a rash...in my opinion, that is a lot less severe than any of the illnesses they are getting vaccinated for.

I very much so recommend children getting vaccinated (this is purely my opinion). But I know that whooping cough was going around REALLY bad when my daughter was born and I was so scared she was going to get it and something was going to happen to her! I could not wait for her to turn 2 months, just so I didnt have to worry anymore. Medicine has gotten so much better, and I do not agree that vaccines are the cause of disabilities in children, its genetics and I am so sorry for those families and pray for them. But they still have an amazing wonderful child, life just might be harder! My daughter did get an ugly rash from her MMR vaccine, but she is FINE now. She has NOT been sick in her 13 months of life, except for an ear infection!
