I was talking to my 79 year old dad about this and he basically said the same thing as you all here. He said, "In my day, when someone got measles, everyone would rush their kids over! Leave it alone! They're fine! Oh, but they should get a smallpox vaccine b/c THAT'S important!" Lololololol.
B/c before I felt like I was riding on herd immunity, and now I hear of more and more VPDs b/c so many of us are not vaccinating. I have never been comfortable not vaccinating. I was just scared to. Now I seem to be tilting the other way.
Before: vaccine risks>disease risks
Now: so much measles, etc., and adults getting it which is worse (imagining dh and I laid up with measles and unable to work)
This would mean we should get boosters for ourselves.
Now: kids older so can tolerate vaccines better, and I don't want them getting sick
This would mean I should vaccinate them, but when?
