I have a 15 month old daughter who, at this time, has received no vaccines. My current plan is to wait until she hits puberty and have her MMR and chicken pox titers drawn, and if they are negative, give her those vaccines at that time. I was also considering giving her a meningites vaccine if, when she reaches college age, she chooses to live in a dorm. Other than that, I had not planned on giving her any other vaccines. I have many people in my and my husband's family with severe neurological and immune system disorders and while I realize the current belief is that vaccines will not cause these conditions, it seems to be recognized that if a person has certain genetic predispositions, environmental factors such as vaccines may make the person more susceptible to some of these illnesses. Would this be a reasonable course of action given these circumstances or could you offer a better plan? I'm interested in doing the absolute bare minimum without putting her at risk for future long term complications should she happen to be exposed to a vaccine preventable disease in adulthood.
Thank you for your time.
