Our family does not vaccinate. I noticed on this forum that a lot of parents who choose not to vaccinate also homeschool as well. I'm not sure if they go hand-in-hand, as this was just my observation. I was just wondering how many of you actually have small children in school who are not vaccinated. I ask because I tend to be a worry wart, usually for no reason, but sometimes I feel like my son will be the only unvaccinated child in the class, and god forbid there is a breakout, they will blame him or something. I know, I know. It's far-fetched, but these are the silly things that go through my mind because it seems it's a division of vaccinators vs. non-vaccinators anymore.
I am a first-time mom, so this is all new to me. We may be sending him to pre-K this September (he'll be 3 1/2), so these thoughts have been crossing my mind. I just read an article in the Parenting magazine where the doctor was telling vaccinating parents to get angry at those who choose not to vaccinate when entering school. I mean, are you serious????? I don't like that magazine because it's mainstream, and I can usually avoid those articles, but I had to read that one and it just made me angry and sick to my stomach.
I guess I'm looking for other stories in the same situation in regards to unvaccinating and entering pre-K/school.
