Wow! There's alot I want to comment on... I would highly recommend a website called vaccine911 for all of you doing research about vaccinating your child. They have a DVD for about $20 that is so worth it!

1. The Japan study that was sited. Yes, a while back Japan tried postponing their vaccines until 2 years old and their crib deaths under 2 nearly disappeared. Strangely enough, sudden deaths in 2 year olds sky rocketed!!!

2. Autism is not always genetic, it can be environmental and other causes.

3. Thimersol (the Mercury compound) is removed from the MMR in the US but did you know it is still present in the flu shot and some others.

4. My issue with vaccines is the SHOCK to the baby's system, including their underdeveloped brain. These diseases are meant to trigger an immune response and a healthy baby will develop immunity through the white blood cells and T cells doing their job. But an immunization is injected directly into the bloodstream and before the immune system can be activated, many of them cross the bloodbrain barrier. Your baby is not given a weight or age specific dose of the immunization- their little bodies are assulted with these chemicals and many can not handle it. Many of the so called shaken baby deaths are suspected to be due to the onslaught of the vaccine chemicals literally liquifing the brain!!

Now, before anyone blasts me, please let me tell our story. We have vaccinated differently with each of our children... our May08 baby has not had any vaccinations yet but we will probably do some down the road. We are not totally anti-vaccine but we are against the APA recommended schedule. It's too much, too soon for your still developing baby.

Again- do your research, look at both sides with an open mind. There are studies for both sides. DOn't just take what your ped or family doctor says. YOU are responsible for YOUR child. You need to be confident in your decision and be willing to accept any of the consequences. Good luck!!

The autism thing never really got to me, but my sister in law (who is a midwife) has read studies etc that say vaccinations can cause SIDS. For example: in Japan they do not vaccinate children until they are 2 and their SIDS rate is non-existant. I am willing to wait the 2 years, and then be selective about the vaccines that I give my daughter. Its not that I don't want to protect her, I just think as parents we have the responsibility to do our own research as to what is best for our child. I had chicken pox as a kid, with absolutely no ill effects. Some of the diseases we in the US vaccinate against aren't particularly dangerous. (Rubella is merely a rash that lasts a couple of days.) The US is also the only country in the world that uses the LIVE polio vaccine. All other countries use the inert version. Its these types of things I want to consider when vaccinating my child. Maybe she will get some of the vaccines, but she will be older and I will choose the ones that I believe have the most benefit for the fewest risks.

toxins in any way, shape, or form and our personal ability to deal/detoxify from those poisons. mercury in vaxxes...yes, it's still there. mercury in the ecosystem such as in New Jersey, PA (where I live) and in CA.....from coal-burning, where the highest rates of Autism exist in the country. the poisons exist in many forms.

After doing reseach as I stated in an earlier post. I have found that there is very little chance that there is any link to autism. I lived in NJ where 1 in 4 children have autism. Now they don''t get any different vacs than others so there must be another link. Perhaps water and contaminants. I have read the research by the scientist that stated they caused this BUT I also read many studies debunking him. So read read read and read some more then decide what you think.

My family doctor refused to give any vaccinations until six months old because of the suspected link to SIDS. My girls never had the chicken pox shot because I was afraid that it would wear off as an adult. They caught chicken pox and never had any complications. Now they should not have to worry about getting chicken pox while pregnant.

I have a brother with severe autism, but he showed signs at only two months old. He had not had any shots yet, so we know it was not from the shots.

I can not believe this is Still being debated.

How many times does it have to be said that it was Proven Wrong???

It's sad to me, that our community is so divided Still...



"That’s the case with a controversial 1998 paper published in the Lancet by Andrew Wakefield, a former intestinal specialist at Royal Free Hospital in London. This week, the editors of the British Medical Journal (BMJ) penned a commentary calling the study “an elaborate fraud,” and accompanied the charge with an in-depth study exposing apparent manipulations of the data by Wakefield to bolster his argument that the mumps, measles and rubella vaccine was linked to autism.

Hi, i have heard and witnessed it happen to my friends child, he was developing ahead of his age up until he had this vaccine, now he is at the severe spectrum of autism. But there is no evidence about this vaccine casuing it scientifically. Now this vaccine has gone through so many tests and trial experiments since it happend to my friends son. My daughter is nearly 3 and she had this vaccine and is totally fine. Its a personal issue when your thinking i could affect my child by trying to protect them from dieseases. I wouldnt hesitate to let another of my child have this.

"The preservative that was linked to autism has been pulled off the market and is not being used in vaccinations anymore. Do your research before you get on a no vaccine bandwagon." -- Actually that is a false statement. So perhaps you should follow your own advice. Thimerosal is still used in vaccines. The influenza shot...the HepA/B shot and the Meningococcal shot as a preservative. It is still used in the 'processing' of ALL vaccines but only in trace amounts. It is claimed that the mercury is "washed" away during processing.

The link may not be the vaccines. There was a study just done where they can identify autism at 6mos of age with a brain scan, and correct me if I'm wrong but I think that's around the age they give the MMR? My youngest is 10 and has autism, so I don't really remember. I know she got the shot later then she should have gotten it, because she just kept getting ear infections and colds.

i've heard all the risk about vaccinations, but i just think it's better to go ahead and vaccinate because there are a lot more kids who get sick from not getting vaccinated than get sick from being vaccinated. in my opinion, there are a lot more risks not getting your children vaccinated vs. getting them vaccinated...and plus, in our state (texas, idk how it is in others), they have to be up-to-date on their vaccinations for state-licensed child care providers, school, etc.

My advice to all parents out there is to educate yourself. Two things we know for sure, 1) vaccinations HELP prevent disease 2) some contain ingredients such as Aluminum, Formaldehyde & Thimersal. Aside from the Autism debate (which my nephew has) you must decide when you want to expose your child to these chemicals. I believe that vaccines are useful, I just think we are giving them at a very high rate to such small babies. I want to split the MMR vaccine, but our Dr. has warned that not all doses may be available. So be careful when you decide to split this vaccination and the availability of the single measles, mumps, rubella at your dr's office.

[deleted account]

I am a nurse and vaccinate kids everyday. I would recommend giving vaccines according to the recommended schedules. All my kids and myself included are fully vaccinated and we are doing just fine. My grandma had polio as a kid and is still dealing with the effects. I would never want my kids to go through anything like that.

We vaccinated our daughter & we never thought twice about it. Being vaccinated is important. The diseases your child is getting vaccinated for are very serious & can be deadly. I would rather my child be protected from those diseases than to suffer through them if she ever got them. I believe that autism is genetic & I don't believe that being vaccinated will cause autism. There isn't enough proof to prove it. We aren't getting the chicken pox vaccine or the flu shot for our daughter because they feel that they aren't neccessary.

My kids have been done.
I think daycare centers & schools have the right to not accept non vaccinated children.
I have learned a lot from reading everyone's posts & am one of those parent's that just do what the doc says (I trust their judgment on what is best for my kids) although I now agree with the point of not giving kids the chicken pox vaccine. A very good friend of mine's brother died at the age of 26 years, after contracting chicken pox from his young son. He developed complications (pneumonia) & you just don't expect that to happen this day & age. I remember having chicken pox & yeah it was itchy, but hey, I got almost a month off of school!!
But then, you can't choose when your child contracts this....

all of my 3 kids have had their vaccinations and have been fine, but with that i must also state my son had whooping cough before the age of 2. that was hard

[deleted account]

well ive been sat here reading this for a wee while now... and im in the uk. im glad that majority of parents on here are getting or had their children immunised. i was fully aware of the link between the mmr and autism all i did was delay it a wee bit until he was 2yrs old. the link really i feel is at around the time your child is immunised is generally the time that autism is noticable. but again this can depend on how you feel about the subjet personally. what i dont agree with is NOT having them immunised, does the child really stand a chance against an illness with no previous backup??? and we dont have chicken pox injections over here....but apparently when a woman has a baby they are immune from any infectious illness for the 1st three months so a peadiatricion told me. but i had chicken pox when i was a little girl so technically should carry immunity over to my child.......who got chicken pox aged just 3 weeks!!!!! he was admitted to hospital because they wasnt sure what it was because of the afore said reason.



so really its all down to a personal choice. but children are defensless and its our job as parents to protect them as much as we can, this includes imms!!!

I was hesitant about my son getting the chicken pox vac because it may not 100% effective and it's worse to get it as an adult. But, 1st he goes to day care for a couple hours a week and they have to have it there and 2nd with all of the babies that ARE getting the vac now it's a lot less likely that he will get it from another child, therefore still the possibility of getting as an adult. If you've had the shot, the outbreak will be less severe it you get it.

I plan on getting our son all but the chicken pox vac, but we are holding off on the ones starting at 12 months since he had violent reactions to the first two sets. Our doctor said it was nothing but a baby should not throw-up like the exorcist after getting his shots. I do believe vacs have a place but that we push to much onto new babies immune systems.

I asked my doctor becuase I had (intrusive)  family members and friends with concerns... I received the same answer about the mercury in the vaccine and was assured that the ones that would be used had no such ingredients.

Dr. Sears wrote that book on Autism but remember he vaccinated all his children differently. Also on the tv show The Doctors, they had a family on where their oldest children had autism and were vaccinated and the two youngest were NOT vaccinated and they have autism. I believe it is all genetics.

I've heard this theory too, I know one American tv personality is trying to spread the word that vaccinations are no good.

So far there is no scientific proof that autism is caused by immunisation and the risks are too great not to immunise your child.

Quoting Ally:

We will not be getting the MMR or chickenpox vaccines for our daughter...not so much for the autism link but bc those are diseases that are meant to be had in childhood...and while unpleasant for a week or so they provide lifelong immunity after having the diseases. In this day and age in the US pretty much the only reason that their are complications/fatalities is bc parents fail to recognize when their child needs medical attention and it becomes a downward spiral. The last thing I want to do is vaccinate my child against usually uncomplicated illnesses when the vaccines have not been proven to be lifelong (about 10-15 years) so then you have basically set kids up to get these diseases as they enter their late teens and are most likely going to be living in college dorms and not getting booster shots...just doesn't make sense to me personally!


I am sorry, but this is a ridiculous comment. Your child is never MEANT to get sick, Especially that getting measles and mumps has been linked with many health problems later in life.It can permanently damage organs and cause lingering side effects.



 



The immune response to the disease and to the immunization are the same except the body is not attacked by the disease if you immunize. And no, the only complications and fatalities are NOT because a parent is not paying attention it is because these diseases are dangerous and completely un necessary in this day and age.



If you have children that are unvaccinated it also puts other people (the elderly and pregnant women are of special concern) at risk for contracting a disease that does not need to be present.



Why you would put your child at risk and choose for them to get the disease just because you don't trust them to get boosters in adulthood (which are normally not necessary anyway) is beyond me. WHere is the logic in "Im not going to get an immunization so my child can get sick...and therefore have immunity that MIGHT be a little stronger"

I remember when the first polio vaccines came out, my father was a delivery driver for the vaccine. Parents cried with relief and joy that their children would be safe from the summer sickness, and not die, be crippled, or more horribly be put in an iron lung for life. At one point 250,000 people were paralyzed in the US by polio. Those people who did recover are now suffering post-polio syndrome.

As a hospital volunteer I took care of an unvaccinated baby with whooping cough, and there is not a more dreadful sound of a baby trying so desperately to breathe.

I also remember my dear friend Nan, taking care of a child born blind, deaf, and dumb, because she caught german measles from an un-vaccinated child. My aunt now has painful shingles because she had chicken pox as a child.

Vaccines are not perfect, have possible side-effects but does anybody seriously contemplate the alternative.
