This steams for another post.
What vaccines do you believe are necessary, and which ones aren't? Or do you believe ALL vaccines are bad? Just looking for some others' opinions.

i don't believe that chickenpox and flu vaccines are necessary, but we still choose to fully vax.

I believe it varies from family to family. It may not be necessary for everyone.

I work in the medical field, and every day I have physical contact with patients. It would be very foolish of me to NOT vaccinate myself. My son is vaccinated, too.

I'm not sure that they're ALL necessary, but we are a vaccinating family from all well-child vacs to flu shots.

Why did you choose not to?

I don't feel like they are necessary. I'm posting from my phone, but there are charts showing decline of diseases. Most of the time, the decline was not from vaccines, but from better hygiene.

There's probably some truth to that.

But for my family, the benefits of vaccines far outweigh potential risks.

My LO is getting all her vacs except for the flu vaccine for now, one of her brothers had a really bad reaction to it and I'm just not comfortable with having her get one until she's a bit older...so I go and get it instead because I'm always with her there will be hopefully less of a chance of her getting it if I don't get it.

Its parents like you that don't get kids the right vaccines and end up getting sick and making kids that do get them ill for no reason. Yes you have the right not to do it, by all means but if so keep you're kids at home and home school them.

So unvaccinated kids make your vaccinated kids sick? If the vaccines WORKED, your kids wouldn't be sick. Stop spewing ignorance.

If your kids vaccines work, how does my unvaxed child make them sick? Do you not have faith in the vaccines?
