Long story, short: I met a salesman this week and we got to talking about family and he is a new father to a 2 month old. He began talking about the child getting his 2 month shots and how it's hard to watch and no fun.

He said he had a friend who had 2 autistic children who she felt were that way due to vaxing. She kept telling him that vax was not a good idea and he said he did a lot of research and felt okay going ahead with it.

He said his ped put it like this: "Would you rather have an autistic child or a dead child?"

That just seems like such an irresponsible thing for a HCP to say.

Since I feel vaxxes could very well kill my children (Especially the one with numerious food allergies, including eggs) my answer would be NEITHER. Thank you very much.

Ah, the dead baby card.....it's a classic

And I would have said, "My feelings exactly...which is why I refuse to vaccinate my children, thank you."
