my dc DIDNT have an adverse reaction and i don't vax! weigh in! - Page 2

post #21 of 68
I've never vacinated a child, but like many more of us than that, I've been vacinated myself, both before and after it became my decision. I don't do it any more, though. I did do anti-D, with some trepidation, after making that decision, but that's not a vaccination.

I'm not horrifically opposed to immunization ... after all, I've done planned chicken pox exposure for my childen. I do think they have a *lot* of kinks to work out before immunization through vaccination is probably more generally healthful than harmful for most children. Does that make sense?

No vaxes, no reactions here. Just the good fortune to have started thinking about it beforehand.
post #23 of 68
No reactions here. I started reading about vaccinations before DS was born and wasn't comfortable with it.
post #24 of 68
We started doing research while I was pregnant with dd, and decided before she was born that we would not vaccinate.

ds never had a reaction (vaxed to 12 mos.), but my gut kept telling me to research before the MMR shot (not because i'd heard MMR=autism, but because i KNEW the MMR shot was what caused my miscarriage, and it scared me).

that's when i found this forums and did my reading. no vaxes since.

My oldest two are fully vaxed. Matter of fact.. dd#2 had K vaccines 6 months before dd#3 was born. In those 6 months I learned a lot about vaccines and stopped vaxing altogether. dd#3 has never had a vax. We have never had an adverse reaction.

(of course I still swear the HepB is why dd#1&2 lost all their hair at six weeks old.)

I so regret having my first son almost fully vaxed on a delayed schedule. No adverse reactions but such an unnecessary exposure.

When I was pg, I had a student who won a settlement due to vax & that started my research. Obviously, it took a couple of years to swear off most vax entirely.

No vaxes, no reactions here either. I started researching when PG with DS and it just didn't feel right. Little did I know at the time how deep this rabbit hole goes.

My siblings and I were never vax'd and we never vax'd our children.

wow! this is interesting! certainly discredits the argument that MOST of us are here b/c our dc had an adverse reaction to vax's (of course, i feel very sad for those who came here initially b/c of an adverse reaction...certainly not meaning to take anything away from those mamas).

our Dd has not been vaxed
post #32 of 68
2 children partially vaxed and no reactions that I am aware of.

aisraeltax (would love to know what your username means, BTW!)--we are in the same boat as you. We're 'delaying' for now, but it's very likely a forever delay. No reactions, obviously, as I only have one dd and she hasn't received any vaxes.

My 1st dd was vaxed (selectively, she never had the MMR) until she was 10mos and then we stopped. She had no adverse reactions that I am aware of. My 2nd dd is not vaxed.
post #35 of 68
I was fortunate enough to learn about vaccinations years before I got pregnant, so my daughter has never had a vaccination. It took a few years to go from the selective/delayed mindset to none at all. Luckily, dd hadn't been born yet! After she was born I was actually thinking of doing just the tetanus at some point. Luckily, the tetanus-only shot isn't given to kids under 7. Then I found out it had 25 mcg of mercury, and I decided on no vaxes, ever. After more research, I'm no longer afraid of tetanus anyway.

No vaxes for DD, so no reactions

That's us too.
post #39 of 68
no adverse reactions here, either, and we stopped vaxing DS at 9 months. i had reactions as a child, though. i had to have half-doses of all my vaxes.

Kids not vacced, so no reactions.

The cat on the other hand had a severe reaction.
