Wow he must be old then since the last case of naturally occuring polio in the us was 30 years ago.

Love the scare stories. I guess thats their version of informed consent.

LOL! Our first ped volunteered in South America and saw all those kids dying from the diseases I refused to vaccinate for. I very sweetly said "and the dirty water and malnutrition has nothing to do with that?"

Blech.

What I'd really like to know and can't seem to find actual numbers on is of the people (particularly kids) who do contract pertussis how many of them were already vaccinated? I've read several stories online about babies and kids who had it after being vaccinated, but I'm not sure if they keep track of this info.

My doc actually wasn't that bad, he said pertussis and meningitis are the two things he worries about most and would recommend we have done, but told me to do some research if I wanted and ultimately he was there to educate. They did however have me sign a waiver that I refused the vaccines they offered. Hadn't heard of that before, but I guess it covers their butts should my kid get sick.
