My almost 9 mo DD has not had any vaxes, due to my husband's objections. He thinks vaccines cause autism and the risk of side effects are not worth it. We have had many arguments over immunizations since our daughter was born. I agreed to wait out of respect for him, but I am definitely not comfortable not giving her any immunizations. She is our only child, partially breastfed and not in daycare, but I work with sick children. I had the Tdap a couple years ago.
I would really like her to at least start the Dtap at her 9 month well child check up coming up. We live in WA state where there is a pertussis epidemic that is expected to peak this summer. I guess I am torn as to what to do. I do not want to have to go behind my husband's back.
