I have a 9 year old and a 13 year old. They have not been vaccinated at all, for anything.
My son has had chicken pox (13 year old) but the 9 year old has not.
I am considering selective and/or delayed vax and I am looking for opinions and input.
When I decided not to vaccinate 13 and 9 years ago I felt it was ridiculous to inject so much into a little new baby. I was unsure how I felt about such conflicting information on both sides of the argument and I chose with my gut after 30+ hours of research, (each time). It wasn't a decision I made lightly either time but I didn't that I had access to honest (unskewed/unbaised) information on either side.
And now it seems the paradigm has changed yet again? I am told that the autism link has been completely debunked? I wonder who paid for that study. I have heard the supposed harmful ingredient has been removed? What did they replace it with? How long before we know if that is ok?
So again I find myself lost in a sea of information I am having a really hard time making heads or tails of.
So I look to you my fellow mothers and fathers, who love your kids and want the best for them and are not swayed by huge pharmaceutical bottom lines and try to read between the dollar signs and find the truth.
What are you vaxing for and why?
What should I be reading or studying?
Where can I get information that isn't backed by profit mongering conglomerations or other groups with less than ethical and moral motivations?
I want to hear what you think and what you are doing and why you decided that. I need your help.
I find myself pregnant again as well and wonder if I vax these older two kiddos will it endanger the baby I am carrying? And should I delay vax with this new baby the same number of years I have with my older two?
Thank you for any and all of your help in advance.
