any insights about the Japanese vaccination system?

 

i vaccinated my first child only after he turned 4 months and only with vaccines that made a difference (back in Israel)

there was the Whooping cough,tetanus Diphtheria and Meningitis

I think there a little more relaxed about it then in the US from what I have read. I lost all my bookmarks on vaccinating iN Japan a few weeks ago :( I have a 21/2 DD that is unvaxed and will be heading to Japan with her and a 6 week old so DD2 will obviously be unvaxed as well. From my readings I know measles is still somewhat common there but it is here in the states too.  There is also japanese encephalitis but from I have read the vax scares me and JE really only seems to be a huge issue in rural areas. The CDC will have info on that. If I can recall where I read all my info I will post for you.
