Anyone regret not vaccinating?

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I've read many posts from people that say they regret vaccinating. I was just wondering if anyone regrets not getting a vaccine?
post #2 of 54
No.

No, and the more I read and find out, I'm very happy we don't.

No. I only regret the vaccinations my first 4 got before I figured things out...

Not one bit and the more I learn the more I am firm that I made the right decision.

The only time I did was when at 18 mos DS had a deep wound and the ER staff kept asking and asking me if he had all his shots. It was an "Oh Sh!t" moment, and I guess I didn't regret it as much as I regretted that I wasn't confident about what was going on, not to mention being terrified for my son. I started to calm down when the ER docs advsd that I could go home and research whether I wanted to get the Tetanus (dtap) for DS. Then I came here and then it was none too clear that I had NO regrets for skipping vaxes, and still do not.

My biggest regret was allowing the Hep B shot in the hospital before we went home. But I learned a lot about motherly instincts that day.

Good question to ask.. no regrets at all, but i did have a tetanus scare and am prepared with knowledge about what to do if ever it happens again.
I guess that's the best bet!

That's how I feel. We stopped at 4months with him when I realized something was wrong. Just been trying to give them the healthiest diet possible to clean out his system. And keep educating myself in case they do ever catch one of the viruses.

No, I regret allowing my first six kids to be vaxed. The youngest has been the healthiest of the bunch.

Excellent point about soooo my people regretting vaccinating. I've never seen anyone regret not vaccinating.

No regrets for me either whatsoever for my completely unvaccinated daughter. I've seen that her immune system is quite strong, as compared to vaccinated children who have been sick much more severely and much lengthier than her. She's almost 2 years old, and the only signs of illness that she had were very brief and non-eventful, which included the very first time when she was 17 months old and in my mom's care while I was at work, my daughter had a fever and runny nose for about a half a day, my mom said. The same thing happened to my daughter in my care when she was about 20 months old, fever and a bit of a runny nose, also for about a half a day. I have exposed her to lots of germs all over the place, touching shopping carts, touching the ground, not washing hands obsessively and really quite infrequently and without soap even (just plain water), letting her touch other kids, taking her out in public everywhere to playgrounds, been on airplanes, etc. and I've witnessed that her immune system is strong enough to overcome whatever she is exposed to. If she got measles, mumps, rubella, or chicken pox, I'd be very happy because I know that she would recover nicely, she would have lifetime immunity from the particular disease, and her immune system would strengthen (Dr. Mendelsohn addresses how harmless and beneficial those diseases are in childhood in his book "How To raise a Healthy Child In Spite of Your Doctor." And her blood is clean, not contaminated with diseased animal and aborted human fetus matter and toxoids, i.e. vaccines. Her immune system is strengthened naturally with proper nutrition, sunshine and love. So I'll say it again that I'm very happy, and feel 100% confident about her being completely unvaccinated.

No. Every day I am so thankful I knew enough not to vax. I hear first hand stories of vaccine reactions on a regular basis and it breaks my heart.

I also respect the power of the immune system so much I would never compromise it in any way and vaccines damage the hell out of the immune system.

No

No, no regrets here.

I do however deeply regret partually vaccinating my first child (before I started my research).

Most people who "regret" not vaccinating would simply go out and have their older child(ren) vaccinated. It's a simple thing to "undo" if you change your mind later. But once a vaccine is inside a child, it can't be undone.
post #17 of 54
No
post #18 of 54
No, I only regret the vaccines my oldest had before I started asking questions.
post #19 of 54
absolutely not. My 18 mo. old dd is totally vax free and I thank God I for that. I wasn't sure what to do at first but the more I learn the more confident I am I made the right decision.

No way. We are glad every day that our grandchildren are not vaccinated. My dd just thanked me the other day for alerting her about the dangers of vaccines. She feels her second child would be dead had he been vaccinated. (Don't ask me how she came to feel that way, she has no explanation, just a gut feeling.)
