I'm waiting for a longterm study of the safety and effectiveness of the current vaccine program. If you think one has been done you are woefully mistaken. My son won't be a science experiment.

I am waiting for pharmacutical companies to be regulated so that they aren't making billions off of vaccine sales. I'm not vaccinating my son so some company can make a buck.

I have boys! My first baby boy was born 10/08 and my second baby boy was born 7/12

Some of my reasons:

Husband has a history of disturbing, unexplained reactions to shots (not blood draws). Fainting, small seizures.

We have low risk for these diseases right now (breastfeeding - a couple of years ago, I still showed MMR immunities in a blood test; no daycare; nutrient dense diet with lots of vitamins A, D, K).

People have died after receiving vaccines. Might be the cost of doing business from a public health perspective, it's frightening to us, given #1 above.

I would like our son to be vaccinated for whooping cough, but I don't like injecting aluminum into his body. Nobody has shown clearly what all that injected aluminum does long term. Ditto formaldehyde, etc.

What about all those diseases we don't vaccinate for? There are risks in life. Pharmaceuticals are quite the human experiment, so we are picky about them.

Also,I don't know if this applies to you or not, but DP and I also have a deep distrust of the pharmaceutical companies, and the FDA.

Right on!

In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.

These are BOTH key to what I feel....I have added these to my siggy on another board and will use them eventually on my FB....AMEN TO THAT!

*there are medical interventions that can save lives, but injecting known human carcinogens etc directly into our bloodstreams (avoiding our bodies natural defence systems) just seems asinine (tee hee, love using that word!)

After researching testing, ingredients, and the rise in chronic illnesses, I think that the vaccine is the greater risk than the disease in our situation.
