At a most basic level, I'm very concerned about vaccines and my youngest child, who, at 18 months, isn't vaxxed. I do think about tetanus, and I want to know more about my options with respect to that vaccine. Any thoughts?
Also, I worry about vaccines becoming compulsory at some point. As it stands, they pretty much are in the US- you can usually exempt your children if you jump through certain hoops, but in most places, vax are required for school attendance. In worry that the already rigid requirements will become even more so. I don't want to give my child drugs that I don't think he needs. Right away chicken pox and hep b come to mind when I think of ridiculous vaccines to mandate across the board.
Anyone else? What are your concerns, thoughts? How do we keep this conversation alive when it is being stamped out at every turn?
