I've been slightly uncomfortable with the fact that my DCs are not vaccinated, especially lately as family members have been making comments and discussions about immunizations have occurred and my kids are the only ones unvaccinated - which really makes me question myself, because I haven't done the research yet to back myself up.
In any case, I just had this moment of, wth. Why am I expected to vaccinate my kids? Are ANY of these adults that I'm having conversations with IRL aware of their levels of immunity for each of these VADs or know of which vaccines they've had? I wonder how many people who are vaccinating their DCs know of their own status. And for those who don't know - IRL, I would bet that would be almost everyone that I know, what IS the reason that they are vaccinating their DCs?
I'd assume they do it with hopes of avoiding the disease, some may do it to with the idea in mind that they're helping to keep these diseases from spreading.. so of it is SO important for their kids to be vaccinated, why aren't adults making sure they're up to date as well?
What about you? If you're vaccinating your DCs, do you know your own vax status? Are you getting all the shots to catch up?
I have no idea what immunity I have to these VADs, though I was vaccinated on schedule as a child. Why the heck am I even worried about my kids not being vaccinated when I have no idea of my own levels of immunity.
