Need Advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I normally post on the I'm not vaccinating forum, but I have always been open to the thought of vaccinating our son (he is three).  I try to do as much research as I can, but obviously I do not know everything.  I am becoming increasingly worried about not vaccinating him and him getting a VPD (though I know that vaccines are not 100%). 

 

I just found out today that it is possible to get tetanus from horse manure and we live on a horse farm.  So, this has reopened the thought to vaccinate.  Along with tetanus, I am considering other vaccines, but I am not sure which ones. 

 

I am worried about menigitis (I have always been fearful of that disease not just when it concerned him).  Obviously I don't want him to contract anything ever, but that is not realistic.  However, I don't want to make decisions based on fear alone.

 

I am extremely worried about him having a reaction to a vaccine, but again do not want to make the decision to not vaccinate based on fear. 

 

So, how do you choose which vaccines to do?  What do I start with?  I am just so lost.  My husband does have input, but he doesn't really do any research.  I have everyone around me telling me he has to get vaccinated so they are unable to give unbiased advice.

I was very similar to you at first, but then I began increasingly worried about not vaccinating DS (who is 3.) I started with Polio (which was for public health reasons) and also tetanus. He is now getting mostly caught up and so far, nothing has gone at all wrong, and I feel better.
