It all depends who asks. We rarely go to the doctors. So far it has never come up in a medical environment except for at the pedi and he is fine with us not vaxxing. He justs asks if we are still not vaxxing at the well baby visits and that's it. As for friends and other moms around us, if they ask I will probably tell them the truth. Honestly it is a question rarely asked. I guess everybody else just assumes that we are up-to-date.

If people ask "are you up to date with your shots?" and I say yep and leave it at that.  In my opinion we are.

There was no option for:

I tell them we do not vaccinate and we don't


That is us.  If someone asks, I am truthful, but I usually do not come out and say it unless asked (except at the doctors office when I think it is pertinent).


Very few people ask me my status or opinion on vaccinations.

I've never been asked but I'm honest and say we stopped vaccinating once we learned how awful vaccines were. I've lost friends over it, but I've also been lucky enough that my outspoken attitude has made others question vaccines for their own kids. I just wish someone had told me sooner that not vaccinating was ok and why. Had more of my friends told me about not vaccinating earlier on, maybe we could've avoided vaccine reactions.
