|Dear Dr. Castrop and associates,
I have chosen to alternatively/selectively vaccinate my children. I have done my research and am comfortable with my decision. I am aware of the risks and benefits associated with my choice and feel it is in my children’s best interest to follow our own schedule for vaccinations. I propose the following vaccination schedule for my children.
Catch Elijah up on all needed vaccinations on August 4th, 2010.
DTaP: August 4th, 2010 -- October 2010 -- December 2010 -- February 2011
IPV: August 4th, 2010, October 2010, December 2010
MMR: February 2011, August 2011
If Eden has not contracted Chicken Pox by the age of 12 years old, Varicella may be administered at 12 years of age along with Hep B, if needed. Elijah will receive all boosters as needed.
At this time, we will not be administering The Flu shot, PCV, HIB, or Hep A.
I don't think vaccinating makes you any less crunchy. I am pretty crunchy I think in many ways...from a diva cup to homebirth to limiting meat intake to treating illness naturally first to sewing and line drying when we can. I feel you can care deeply about keepng life as "natural" as possible and still turn to something like vaccines after looking into the issue. AP is about instinctive parenting for us, sometimes our instincts may lead us to modern medicine.
