Whether you have an advanced degree or not, some things about vaxes are just common sense (I'm finding). The Hep B thing is one of them. WHY does every newborn need the shot? The logic totally falls apart when you look at it, and you don't even have to touch on what's in the shot or what it could do to you. You know? 10,000 babies don't need a Hep B shot at birth to catch a couple dozen who might potentially fall through the cracks. Most of those babies don't HAVE to fall through the cracks anyway.

Oops. Done soapboxing.

WHY no vaccinations?

Because I started reading Mothering magazine when I was pregnant with my daughter (2003).

1) the benefits do not outweigh the risks
2) there are too many toxic chemicals that I don't want injected into my kid
3) I don't trust the gov't or big pharma to keep my child healthy.
4) every instinct in my being told me not to
5) the more research I've done, the more convinced I am that I made the right choice for us

I've removed some posts from this thread & will be sending PMs requesting edits over the weekend. Please keep in mind the guidelines for this subforum:

Quote:
This forum was created to serve the needs of members who have made the decision not to vaccinate or are seriously exploring making this decision. It is not a place to denigrate or criticize those who do vaccinate....

This is not a place for debate or discussions on the merits of vaccines or the dangers of not vaccinating, it is also not a place to argue against vaccines or selective and delayed vaccination schedules. Such discussions are already hosted in the main Vaccinations forum and posts in that vein are most welcome and appropriate there.

I don't vax because I feel that it would be harmful to my child. I wouldn't let her touch most of the chemicals in vaccines and I will not ever willfully allow her to have them pumped into her flesh.

Absolutely!! I couldn't have said it any better myself!

I too thought I would be selective, only get some and not others. THen I did more research and found that I couldn't live with myself if I allowed my baby to be injected with the nasty chemicals, heavy metals, human and animal tissues, etc. in vaccines. I grew a beautiful, healthy, perfect little baby and now I'm expected to pump her full of things that may or may not harm her? I just doesn't make any sense. How am I supposed to allow the little person, who I am supposed to protect, be subjected to the possibility of autoimmune disease, developmental delays, seizures, and on and on and on. If she were to ever come down with any of these, I'd believe it to be from the vaccines.

Also the literature does support that breastfed babies are lower risk of contracting the diseases. My insurance is exclusive breastfeeding for at least 2 years and no day care.

I'm scared of the microbes out there and am sick with the thought of my baby catching any one of the vaccine preventable illnesses. I wish that the vaccines really were the protective instruments they are touted to be. Unfortunately I think they may be more lethal than helpful and until we have more honest research to support their use as safe, I'm not letting them near my baby.

me too!

the risks of the vaxes just aren't risks I feel comfortable taking AT ALL. and the cancer rate scares me. (in general and I feel it is due to vaxing among other things)

At this point, I refuse to live in fear. I am not afraid of the diseases and would prefer to fix the damage done to my immune system and fortify my kids' immune systems. I will not get another shot for as long as I live. I'm not comfortable with the risks of adverse reaction, but I'm not really afraid of them.

Good Ingredients Lists

Here are two good sites to find more information about the ingredients in vaccines:

Happy Reading!

Exactly.

I have never seen evidence that they are without risk.
Childhood illnesses are a workout for the immune system.
Asthma, Autism, autoimmune diseases, childhood cancers, etc.

i vaxed until one year and something wasn't right, i started to research. He had two reactions, nothing severe but it concerned me and i knew something was not right. The answers i was getting from doctors...just didn't seem to make much sense, really vague...i really got no answers.

Considering what i know now....Noone will ever stick me or my family with a vaccine again...

Vaccines are the most absurd pharmecutical out there....considering what they do in the body.....I am amazed that people aren't questioning this more....it's a horror show.

I agree with all the evidence-based reasons, too. Recent history has shown that governments are not against experimenting on their populations. I don't really trust the motives of the mainstream medical establishment and drug companies, esp when we consider how much $$$ is to be made by too many of those who have a role in insisting we vaccinate...

this belief led me away from mainstream medicine to a midwife and to not vaxing. I just don't buy what they're selling.

And my mother had a bad reaction and developed rheumatoid arthritis after a vax when I was a child.

the seeds of doubt were planted for me when I learned of the chicken pox vaccine. I had them at age 17- not a big deal. I read about not-vaccinating when I was pregnant and decided not to because I learned that diseases we vax for were already on the decline before the vax, not to mention the ingedients in a vax. I had to read more after my baby was born because I guess I still had to make sure it was the right choice, even with what I'd learned. I also learned that my dad had the mumps and the measles and lived to tell about it!

because when i was pregnant, my bff told me her 6 month old daughter at the time had a bad reaction to vaccines. i didn't want that to hapen to my boy::tr eehugger:::: :::: hide:
post #59 of 71
We don't vax for many reasons, but the one that stops the questons (from others) the fastest is that my twin nephews are autistic after their MMR vaccines. You could see the decline immediately. So sad!

I also take care of a child who was partially paralyzed after chicken pox vaccine. At two 2 yrs old she looked like a 6 month old and could not even raise her arms to ask to be picked up. At 8, she is just starting to walk on her own and say some words. And can you believe some of her doctors still recommend she receive other vaccines?
post #60 of 71
I started my vaccine research soon after I found out I was pregnant. A friend of mine doesn't vax her daughter and I know my friend is very smart and doesn't do things on a wim, so I figured there had to be a reason. I started researching and wow, I was shocked to say the least. Mostly the reason that we don't vax our twins is the ingrediants such as aluminum, aborted fetal cells, formaldhyde, thirmosel, etc. I also believe that overvaccination is leading to the many health problems that adults and children have now such as JA, allergies, auto-immune disorders, diabetes, etc. I have never really believed in western medicine and the mentality "take a pill and you will feel better". And I guess is has always been part of my character even when I was a child. I received my last shot at 12 years old (hep B) and afterwards I told my mom "I didn't like that and I don't want anymore" and she respected that. Something in me just didn't feel right to have a vaccine. Instinct perhaps
