Resources for a new dad....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi there everyone, 


I have two beautiful healthy children, and both are completely unvaccinated. I am so thankful that I had the insight to make this decision as such a young mother. I am very much against vaccines. 


So now I am having a third child with another man, one who has an opinion about all things child rearing. He doesn't seem to be leaning toward wanting to vaccinate but he says he wants all of the right kind of information-not just one sided in order to make a decision. It would be very difficult for me to even compromise on this one...but it is his right to want to help make this decision for the child we are having together. 


So, I need great links and information for this wonderful intelligent new father. I don't even remember what I read when I made the decision not to vax my first two. I have the Aviva Jill Romm book and one other...


Thanks so much for the help!

A must read for him would be the CDC pinkbook - availiable on the CDC website.

Here are some questions to answer for yourself in deciding about vaccination:

1. Name of the disease
2. Description of the disease
3. Length of time from initial infection to end of all symptoms
4. Infectious period
5. Normal symptoms of the disease
6. Known serious consequences of the disease
7. Proportion of persons infected developing serious consequences
8. Transmission route of the disease
9. Prevalence of the disease
10. Treatments of the disease and efficacy of those treatments
11. Relevant research about the disease
12. Name of the vaccine
13. Company that makes the vaccine
14. Contents of the vaccine
14A. The significance of whether or not the vaccine is live
15. History of development of the vaccine
16. Known side-effects of the vaccine and rate of incidence of those side-effects
17. Possible side-effects not yet acknowledged by the vaccine maker
18. Relevant research into the vaccine
19. How effective is the vaccine at preventing the disease?
20.What is the vaccine meant to do? (Many vaccines are not meant to prevent infection or transmission).
21.Number of cases reported each year.
22.Number of deaths reported each year from the vaccine and natural disease.
