Was I vaxed as a child?


I did have vaccinated friends, as in everyone. Some of them had braces on their legs, or had allergies, or asthma, or MS, or brain tumors, all of which are linked to vaccinations, sometimes.

I was not vaccinated as an infant/toddler, but received shots prior to entering school at age 6. I was/am very healthy. I was also breastfed until 3 yrs. and I am sure that helped.

You know, I was just thinking about this some more. I NEVER got sick as a kid until my family started insisting I receive the flu shot. Every year they forced me to get one and every year I got very, very ill. Hmmm. Interesting.

I think I got my last vax at 12 or 13. I was fully vaxed up till then but I don't do boosters, and I don't vax DS. DH has to be vaxed for all kinds of stuff since he's in the Army. :

I believe I got my last vaccination when I was five or so. I may have gotten shots after that, but I don't believe so. I distinctly remember having a terrible reaction to my DTP shot. My leg, on the side that was injected, was hot, sore, and for awhile I actually could barely move it. It felt like it was going numb, and I had to hobble around the house. It was a really scary feeling actually, thinking back, but at age five I just thought that was what happened. I know my mother had to have signed the exemption form to get me into high school, because I never had my 12 year old measles shot and I am fairly positive I didn't have any in my teen years, and definitely none since I had my daughter.

I would be coming more from your hubby's perspective, as a child I was always vaxed, loaded up with antibiotics, stuff like that. In my house vaccinations were just a normal thing, never questioned, because the doctors said it was the right thing to do. When I first had DD, I went right along with that line of thinking, but now I have seen the light

No more vaxes for her!

I was fully vaccinated

I was born 3months early in 82, weighing 2lbs 2oz.

I have a 3yr old brother a 2 yr old sister and my mom is very pro vax.

She keeps telling me i'm going to die if i get the chicken pox because i never got that vax and never got the chicken pox when friends got them.
