I was really puzzled by cdc's response, I thought the Tdap started at 7!   This vax is so confusing, with DTaP, Tdap, Td, T, pedi/adult versions... and several different brands!   One thing to keep in mind is that if DS had tetanus concerning injury, the protocol (for unvaxed) would be Tetanus Immunoglobulin, which is a blood product, which some people also find scary.

  for just the MMR vaccine. Here is the conclusion too:    
It is interesting that this is worded so:     When the MMR II product insert states that 1/4 - 1/8 teen and adult women receiving vaccine will experience that side effect, 12 - 20something % if I am remembering correctly.
Well that is really interesting, there are adult Tdaps, but only approved for 10-11 years +   http://us.gsk.com/products/assets/us_boostrix.pdf http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM142764.pdf   There is a Td for 7+    http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM246215.pdf   http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM164127.pdf   and...
  I am not a non-vaxer, although perhaps some of my views would set me at home there. The guideline also state that it is not the place for such topics, (as far as I am interpreting it anyway):   This is not a place for debate or discussions on the merits of vaccines or the dangers of not vaccinating, it is also not a place to argue against vaccines or selective and delayed vaccination schedules. Such discussions are already hosted in the main Vaccinations forum and posts...
From all the recent threads I have seen and participated in, no one has ever said pertussis or tetanus vaccines shed. So I guess it was an example??
I think it is difficult because very often some "science" exists on both sides of whatever point is being argued. (peer reviewed/govt/official site)   Both sides can understand perfecting well what they are presenting, dislike/dismiss the others' info, and continue to disagree.
  I would be pissed too. I'm glad I had natural cp so I could pass on those antibodies to baby.   ETA, I think also, most people are aware that other people can pass on all sorts of illnesses to newborns, vpd or not. I don't know how many people realize it is possible for a recently vaxed mom to shed rubella through breastmilk and potentially infect her kid, or pass on chicken pox.
  Yes, it does go both ways. There have been many posts about deaths from chicken pox... and how dangerous chicken pox is.    Both come with risks. Some people feel more comfortable with the vaccine, some people feel more comfortable without.   Pro-vaxers continually up-play some vpd risks, Anti-vaxers continually up-play vax risks.   Seeing as how vaccine risks are little known/not discussed/socially unacceptable to point out in many other arenas, I do point them out here.
