Honestly I have never felt weird telling anyone that we don't vax. But, I'm a sahm and we don't do a lot of group things with other people. Our church is pretty no-vax AND vax friendly. So, I have a feeling that I simply haven't come into contact with the type of person who would make me feel weird talking about not vaxing. I have no problem bringing it up on my own, telling a complete stranger, or a neighbor... or answering if asked. Today for example, Ds1 wanted to go next door to see the 'doggies'. So we did, the daughter lives there and had a son about 5 months ago. I walk up and we start chatting as we have on a few occasions. Conversation goes like this:
Me: Does your little one see Dr. **** here in town, too?
Me: *shaking head* Every time we go he gives me a long spiel and TONS of pamphlets about vaccinations! He drives me crazy!!
Her: So, you don't vaccinate your kids?
Her: How does that work with school?
Me: Oh you just have to fill out the exemption form that says "I don't vaccinate my child." (Said very matter of factly.)
**End of conversationt** **No weirdness**
I hope that maybe I've planted a small seed in her mind that there are people who actually don't vaccinate! Who knows if it will have any effect. If the opportunity comes up, I will probably try to see if she is receptive to more in-depth info about it. I guess I better read up and refresh all my facts and statistics!
