If you don't vaccinate...or selectively vaccinate... EmmaGrace 3 kids; Ennis, Texas 27010 posts

...has your child ever caught a disease in which he/she was not vaccinated for?



This can include infants who were perhaps too young to receive a certain vaccine...not just those who choose not to do (certain or any) vaccines.



Please explain your answer.



Thought I'd make a poll I can more fully participate in. :)

Nope.
Non vaccinating and kristens never caught anything.
And also- i have not had a flu shot since grade school and have never got the flu :lol:

Travis was fully vacccinated asa child. And has had the flu numerous times.
I was selective vacinated and never caught any serious illness. the only serious thing i had as a child was scarlet fever (non vacc related)

My 6 year old is partially vaccinated (hep b plus first 2 sets of infant shots,) and my 4 year old is unvaccinated.



Neither have caught any diseases. In fact, they are barely ever sick at all, and when they are, it's mild and short-lived.

I delayed vaccines until 9 months old and still vaccinate selectively.
My child is and always has been very healthy.

Unfortunately Piss is caught up on his vaccinations, so I can't vote. But I'm interested in the results.

My older 2 are fully vaccinated except for my 4 yr old doesn't have her 5 yr MMR. My 19month old is partially vaccinated and she's generally pretty healthy, knocking on wood.

I wonder if there's any correlation. I was fully vaccinated and I was sick constantly until I had my tonsils and adenoids removed. I guess we'll never know!

Jaedyn is partially vaccinated, Olivia and Sidnei are up to date, and Torance will not be vaccinated until a year.... Olivia and Sidnei get sick all the time! Jaedyn has never had a "disease". Olivia and Sidnei both had roseola, and Liv had rotovirus.

We are delaying and will selectively vaccinate at 3 or 4.. they both just got over their first cold a couple weeks ago, just a runny nose but you can't be vaccinated against that. But no, they've been perfectly fine otherwise =) My dd turns 2 tomorrow!!! <3

aww. I can't answer in this because bella has been vaccinated and vaccinated on time. She just recently got sick with her first cold bug and she's 18 months old. I'm interested in seeing these results though!



ETA: My best friend does not vaccinate her daughter and she herself is not vaccinated. Her daughter gets sick rarely but she gets sick quite often.
