I would take the risk of getting the disease (even if no one vaccinated, and VPD rates went up) over the vax. Some people will say "what about the immuno-compromised and infants?Those diseases are dangerous for them." I agree, they are. I cannot make health decisions for my family, though, particularly non-benign ones like vaccines, based on another groups susceptibility.
As I said previously...
Choosing not to vax is your choice. But you have a responsibility to refrain from exposing unvaxed kids to newborns or kids with compromised immune systems. And we all have a responsibility to keep sick kids away from others to prevent the spread of disease.
I'm not saying you have to vaccinate. I'm not saying that there ought to be legal mandates for all healthy children to be vaxxed. I'm saying that if you don't vax, please keep your children away from the children who are most suseptible to disease. Or at the very least, give the other parents information and the same freedom to choose how much they want to risk their child's health. Other parents, the ones who vaccinate, DO NOT prefer the risk of the disease over the risk of the vaccination. They simply can't vax their kids yet because they're too young or too sick.
So please, don't force your choices on other parents. Keep your children from touching or breathing on newborns. Is that really too much to ask? I think almost all good parents would think that's a good idea. It's not about thinking that unvaxxed kids are "germ bombs" or "vectors of disease" (phrases I never used!) it's simply that newborns don't have the immune systems of older children or adults. And my little foster babies are particularly suseptible because they were preemies and because they're formula-fed (thus don't get any breastmilk antibodies). I really don't want anyone touching these kiddos, but it's not fair to force us to just stay indoors all the time. Can't I expect people to use a little common courtesy and keep a distance if they're sick or unvaxxed?
We live in the world with other people. We have to figure out ways to negotiate our differences and respect our choices. I'm not trying to make anyone vaccinate their kids if they don't want to. But just as nonvaxers believe vaccinations are dangerous, pro-vaxers believe that unvaxxed kids are dangerous. We can both believe the other side is ill-informed and has made the wrong choice, but please let's respect eachother's choices by providing as safe an environment as we can for all our kids.
