Do you get your child's immunizations on time, do delayed or selective, or not get them at all?

Please educate yourself about immunizations. Visit http://www.momvaccines.org Vaccines are highly profitable for the medical association. Do your homework. Your child depends on you to make an informed choice.

I didn't mean to come across as harsh. I have 4 children ages 21, 20, 18 and 5, and with my first children, I just did what the doctors told me to do. I was so young. When Ethan was born, my 5 year old, I researched it more and was surprised by what I found, and I chose not to vaccinate Ethan or have him circumcised. I just believe now in making informed choices. The chicken pox vaccine for example is ludicrous and dangerous in my opinion, but there is a lot of pressure to get the vaccine.

ah, yes i was highly concerned about some of them and she has yet to recieve the chicken pox vaccine and I'm not sure she will be getting it. My son got it and he did fine. But like you I was younger when I had him, 7 years makes a big difference in what you decide to do with the next child.

my daughter has gotten all her vaccinations except for the chicken pox vaccine....I had to go to school and fill out a form stating why I did not want her vaccinated.. My doctor does not pressure me on the issue.. she just states that when we are in the doctor's office he has to give me a doctors point of view, it may not be his own personal choice. I have chosen to wait on the chicken pox vaccine and let her have them naturally however with the chicken pox vaccine being given daily... I have not yet heard of a case this year... Very disheartening... The poster who stated.. do some research and make your own choice is right.. My daughter did have all of her shots...however I had a hard time with the MMR shot...He stated that chances were if she did fine with the first set then she would do fine with subsequent sets...I however had a nephew that was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3... so my skepticism...was legit...

that is one of the shots i had issues with too. My cousin has autism and he was diagnosed around the age of 2 or 3. I just can't imagine my bubbly little girl going quiet and I don't know what I would do if she did.
