I guess to me it depends on the illness in question. I have no problems with any one vaccine,better safe then sorry in my book. My home chooses not to get the flu shots though,more so because we seem to get flu worse after a shot then we would have if we hadn't.
All other shots are fine with me simply because schools won't allow students to attend if everything isn't updated each year.
There are other things that I'm sure my children will never get, simply because of my husbands former career. he was in the ARMY and as we all know those men and women get crazy amts of vaccines before theygo over seas.
I found out that both my girls will be immune to all kinds of things including Anthrax at a dr. visit when they were both newborns.

I have vaccinated all 3 of my children and have NEVER questioned it.

I would prefer to know that if there was a reaction, it can be treated, rather than getting the disease and potentially dieing from something that could be prevented.

I could not live with myself if my child died from a disease they could have been immunized against. I was immunized and never had any adverse affects.
