Are you for or against vaccinating your child? I vaccinated my child, but I have a few friends who are to scared to vaccinate their child because they heard some bad stories... my son is fine and everyone in my family is vaccinated and fine.

I'm proud to say I immunised my child!!! I have friends and family members that don't, and that is their perogative. If I didn't do everything in life that could potential do "something" to me - I probably would neve have got pregnant ... lol .... Some people I know who don't immunise do so because of the "possible side effects" others don't because they live a completely natural life - garden patches with organic food, naturopaths and their children are perfectly healthy. My concern is in Australia alot of Day care and school will not enrol and unimmunised child, so, how do those kids get educated!!??

I did with both children. Except for the flu shots and this H1N1 junk. Both my children have amazing immune systems! I do however think that there are some docs who push too many vaccines at one time. There are alternate schedules for those who want the immunizations but are afraid. I have a very good friend who lost her daughter due to a rare allergic reaction to a part of a vaccine. Very sad, but she still chose to have her other babies immunized. Just on that alternating schedule. I

I personally feel that the benefits outweigh the risks. But it is a parents right to choose, so to each their own.

Im totally for it and i kinda think its irresponsible of parents that dont vaccinate. Its their childrent that end up making ours sick, although our kids have the antibodies, its not always enough.

I don't understand why people wouldn't vaccinate their child. I mean with the normal vanccination not like the H1N1 or stuff like that because I didn't vaccinate them my son with that one. But at the hospital, at 2 months, 4 months, 6months and when he turns a year he will be vaccinated (2-6 have already happened lol) but they tell you when they go in there is a chance of them having a mild reaction but I don't understnad why you wouldn't do it. When they get into middle school (atleast around my area) they have to vaccinated in order to start middle school. And I'm not talking about like religious reasons just people that say well I'm not gonna do it

Im totally for it! We all had them done as babies and kids, and we are all just fine! So i think its a good idea to get our kids vaccinated.

I have had both of my kids vaccinated. My daughter has a mild developmental disorder(a very mild form of autism), but I think she was born like that because of trouble that I had during pregnancy that is common in kids who have those issues. They also get the flu vaccine every year. I personally feel that the risk of most of the illnesses would be worse than the potential risk of getting the vaccine.

we vaccinated our child against most of the stuff. We opted to not give our son one of the shots because he's not in daycare and his dr said that since he's at home all day he'll be fine. He's now 21 months and we don't plan to give him anything that isn't required for schools, fore example the flu shot.
