Does the lack of separate vaccines impact you in any way or push you towards non-vax? - Page 2

post #21 of 26

When my DS was a newborn, yes I would have vaccinated him had there been single vaccines. That said, I know a lot more about vaccines now than I did when he was born 19 months ago and I would never ever get him vaccinated regardless of whether or not they were single vaccines.

A bit more on multivalent (combo, poly vaccines):

 

Quote:

Vaccines, including polyvalent products, should be selected to include only those antigens appropriate for the specific risk needs of the patient, thereby eliminating unnecessary immune system stimulation and thus lowering potential risks of adverse events. Veterinarians need to be aware of the risk of "endotoxin stacking" with the use of multiple Gram-negative vaccines.

It has led to procrastination....my soon to be 5yo never received  his mmr after my long efforts to track down monovalent vaccines 4years ago.  His older brother got the monovalent vaccines. ...

I wouldn't give my kids any vaccines now, but earlier in my research, I probably would have given the single tetanus vaccine it if were mercury-free, and FDA approved under the age of 7.

Yes. I think that it is a big reason why I started to question vaccines in the first place. Now, I don't think it impacts me much bc I doubt I'd vaccinate anyway (except I am a bit worried about Rubella bc I have a daughter and don't want her to get it when she is PG.) For me, the CDC planned backfired. I don't think I would've questioned vaxxes nearly as much if they hadn't added so many to the schedule and limited the options. Also, adding chicken pox. Having had CP, it just seemed silly to vax against it. Maybe they are hoping in a generation, everyone will begin to fear CP like the rest of them. . .
