|Acute bacterial meningitis remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States. It now appears that the microbiologic epidemiology of this potentially devastating disease is changing. We have seen a decrease in the incidence of Haemophilus influenzae meningitis and the emergence of high-level penicillin resistance in Streptococcus pneumoniae –related disease.|
I am still having such a hard time making a decision. while my son didn't have to start day care after all, I had to put him under the care of a nany at her home. so he is exposed to that family germs, she has kids in school that could bring a decease.
Also, I am having a terrible time producing milk, so he drinks 28 oz per day out of which only 2-3 oz are breast milk, the rest is formula. (I am under the care of a lactation consultant but nothing so far)
I lean towards non vaccinating, but I am terrified of him getting HIB.
Can any of you share your experience with a non vax kid that got it?
I see it is not very commom, but should he get it, how bad can it be and what happens from the long term perspective?
The mom of a friend of mine got meningitis and almost died!
IF I get the vaccine I think it will be after he is at least 6mo, he is 3mo right now and I would need one that doesn't have aluminum, mercury and such.
I'll pray I make the right decision.
This really sucks!
