The Case for Vaccine Choice - Page 3

post #41 of 43
One of the things that scares me most about vaccines is that the number of them keeps going up and it seems the sky is the limit.
They try to say that refusing a vaccine for even a mild issue like chicken pox can result in a dead baby. It's so patronizing, hysterical and therefore scary at the same time.

The case should always be for choice. I am not anti-vaccination, I am pro-choice. Parents right to choose should always be the issue, not what the parents choose.

Most of the time, we can't even choose which freaking brand we want. All of these decisions get made for us from On High. I often wonder how many more parents would vaccinate for certain diseases if they had their own say in how to go about it.


I think this must vary a lot from doctor to doctor.... We can usually chose what brand we want at our peds office.  Sometimes they have to special order it, but that's about it.  I would like to do whole-cell for pertussis, which isn't on the market anymore.
