Nope-not until hes much, much older, and then only selectively. My 2 year old isnt vaxed at all either.
I researched all the diseases, what they do, how they are transmitted, etc, and the number of cases in the US each year. My conclusion was my kids arnt at risk for any of them, most arnt that easy to catch (ie, they arnt airborn or caught by touch), and the few that were easier, really werent that bad even if they caught it. I am going to pick a few specific things to vaccinate against before they start school, but they wont be getting nearly everything and I will be signing on the back of the immunization record thing that they are unvaxed.
Having said that, my oldest is fully vaxed and my daughter is almost fully vaxed but was delayed until she was 3. My ds has had pertussis TWICE now! And my unvaxed daughter didnt catch it! lol Anyway, I wouldnt be able to put their vaccines in anyway because I refuse to get the stupid chicken pox vax. Ugh.
