I am 27 years old and have not been vaccinated... yet. I was recently accepted into nursing school and was told that I would be restricted from clinicals if I do not get vaccinated. I can't become a nurse without clinicals, so although they won't kick me out of the program for not vaccinating, I basically have no choice but to do so if I want to become a nurse.
I had chickenpox as a child and I went just today to get a titer to prove my immunity.
I guess I am wondering what I should expect... it was my mother who did all the research and decided not to vaccinate me. I am not completely uneducated about it, but I don't know everything. Which ingredients are the problem ones? I know about Aluminum and Mercury, are there others? And if a vaccine has an ingredient I don't want can I opt for another version? I'm actually pretty scared of having a reaction and developing asthma or worse.... Also, would it be worth it to get titers for diseases I have not had?
