I vaccinate my son and I found out at the pediatricians office last week that even though I choose to do so that he is still susceptible to catching airborne diseases that he has been vaccinated for from other children who have not been vaccinated and may carry that virus. That made me very angry and may anger a few of you too but I think that this is something that everyone should know. So if we do vaccinate and I children go to public schools who allow admission of children who have not been vaccinated, our children are at risk. So if a child has measles or whooping cough or hepatitis and goes to school and their parents don't know they are sick, all of the children they come in contact with will have been exposed. This includes the children who have been vaccinated. I know there is a lot of controversy around vaccinations and autism and I do not want to upset anyone I just think we should all be informed. Am I the only one who is upset about this?
