Your Child Your Choice

My dear cousin Diana, asked me to write about vaccines, said she wanted to know my opinion.  Disclaimer: I am not a medical doctor.

I’ve been very vocal about my decision (hubby’s too) when it comes to vaccines (immunizations).

Back in 2008 when I was pregnant with my first baby, I freaked out (like most first time parents)… “I don’t know anything about babies, I don’t even know how to change a diaper… what am I going to do?”….  so I bought me that famous pregnancy book (the one that tells you what to expect)  and it helped a lot.

But as my due date approached I wanted to learn more about how to take care of my baby and her health – I took a special interest about children immunization… and I was shocked to see that the CDC and Pediatrics Association suggest 49 doses of 14 vaccines by the age of 6 !!  In my heart I felt it was not right to start putting contaminants and bacteria to my 2 month baby (they suggest to start immunizations at 2 months).

So I started to read (a lot)… about the diseases these vaccines “protect from”.  Long story short… I made my decision based on eradicated disease, the severity of it and the likelyhood of my daughter catching a disease Vs the likelihood of having a bad reaction from the drugs.    After much research, thought and consideration my husband and I decided to do a selective and delayed vaccine schedule. I stopped doing shots when she turned 2…. I skipped the combo ones. Our daughter is almost 4 yrs young and very healthy.  Now we that we have our second baby girl (she is 2 months)… I am delaying and selecting vaccines as well.

Many people roll their eyes and keep saying put all the shots !! (just because it is suggested) but without knowing what they put in these vaccines.

In my opinion the likelihood of vaccines injury is far greater than the likelihood of catching a disease (most of them are completely eradicated)… and the ones in pandemic…. kids and grownups who have been vaccinated it against it catch it !!!!  (based on CDC information)   ironic huh?

You and only you decide if you chose to vaccinate your kids or not, don’t let anyone make that decision for you, not relatives not even a pediatrician.   —my daughter first pediatrician was a bully and did not respect our decision, so we fired him and found Dr that respected and supported our decision—

Stay happy and healthy!

For more information I suggest the following books:
-A century of vaccination and what it teaches, by E. Scott Tebb MMA, MD
-The Vaccine Book, by Dr Sears MD
-A stolen life, by Marge Grant
-Evidence of harm, by David Kirby
