You can hold off and delay vaccination until you do all the research you need to do to feel comfortable in a decision. It is perfectly okay to stop in the middle and pick up where you left off, if you choose to continue w that vax or vaxing in general. You don't even have to finish a round if you change your mind about a vax.
Parents need to live by the oath "first do no harm" as well as doctors. Doctors seem to fail at this oath all the time and they should know better, since they don't know better, we as parents MUST know more.
Knowledge is empowering. But remember "Absolute Power corrupts absolutely" and once you start looking, you will see Big Pharmaceutical Companies are nearing that "absolute power" position, look at who finances political campaigns, yes it is that important to know who finances those in positions of power over us "the people". Our representatives don't vote for the people, they are voting for their political campaign contributions, as in they feel obligated to vote in a way that benefits those who paid their way into their state or national congressional seat. Also look at lobbiest.
I did not know how far this went until I researched my local state representative when I was working on state midwifery bills. I was appauled. His solution was he was absence from the voting session the day the bill was passed. But he did not help one bit, we thought he was going to vote against it, but I think he realized that would cause an uproar from the women of his district. WE had just recently made headlines and a mockery out of another legislator for his efforts to put a bill into the session that would make pregnant woman who had a miscarriage report it to the police w in so many hours or face criminal charges, I say miscarriage here b/c the law was unspecific on the fetal age the law was to cover. Anyway, the point is, money is the reason vaccines are pushed today, not for the "common safety of others".
Follow the money and really look at the agendas to promote vaxes that have not been proven safe or even effective. The Rotoshield in 98 was pulled, the RotoTech (I think) is causing the same problems the former did. This is not "first do no harm" medicine.
