I think I already know the answer, but I wanted to run this dilemma by you.
I have 2 kids--DS 8, fully vaxxed, and DD 18months, not vaxxed at all. So, in August, I have been invited to a party for some family friends. They are out of state, about 4 hours away. There is a person there who has Hepatitis B, and almost died from it. A close family friend, who will most likely come in contact with the baby. This person, from what I've heard, still has to take medication, so I assume might still be contagious? I don't know.
So, would I be stupid to drive all the way there, and possibly expose us all to HepB? I don't know if I've been vaccinated for it, and I know my DD has not. I believe my son had the vax, but nothing is 100%! Or, am I falling into a trap of fear, because let's face it--you never know who might have a disease. We could be in contact with diseases every day, and never know it. This person claims to have gotten it from construction work, so it might be easier than I thought to transmit!
I feel so guilty for thinking this, but it worries me as a mother. Part of me wants to let my DD grow a little more, to have a stronger immune system, before I take her to visit. That's probably what I'll do. I guess I just wanted to talk this over with other nonvaxxing moms, to see what you would do in a similar situation.
P.S. I'm not interested in the vaccine....lol!
