So I have not vaxed my son but my dd had vax until she was a year and a half old. She was on antibiotics and had a bad allergic reaction. So since abx are in vax I thought 'gee maybe i shouldn't put this in her if she could be allergic to it'.
Anyways, due to the media reports on the 'measles epidemic' he flipping out because I neglect them by not vaxing and how I'll go to jail when my kids die of measles. He also says the VAERS reports are not reliable and are made up according to wikipedia?!?
So how can I talk some sense into him that a. vaccines aren't necessary and b. measles doesn't kill. He just doesn't seem to get that since she had the MMR vax (which I now regret) she doesn't need another one each time the news says there is an 'epidemic' and also I don't think the baby is even old enough Okay, this is mostly a vent but thanks for any advice!
