I was raised without vaccination, as were my parents- so naturally I have adopted the same mindset and do not vaccinate my children (and not without substantial personal research).
But where I live, if I tell someone that I don't vax my kids- they nearly shun me. My pediatrician makes me sign all these waivers basically saying I'm a horrible parent, schools think I'm insane, mothers think I abuse my kids, etc etc etc and I'm sure you all have similar experiences.
So my question is- How many do not vaccinate? Is there a national percentage? I can't be the only one in the area- are there areas in the US or global where the tables are turned and most do not vaccinate? Perhaps if I knew there was a small army behind me in my family decision- I would have more confidence telling others....
