Hi mom, I am in Ma. also. THere is no law that says you HAVE to vaccinate your child at a certain time. If the tie comes for school and you still do not want to vaccinate all that is required is a letter given to the school. I have 4 children, my first son,- got shots on three occasions after which I stopped vax due to his response (this was almost 11 years ago), when my second son was born my thinking at the time was that the DTP shot was to blame for my oldest son's autism, so y second son got the HepB, when he started to worry me a bit with his super serious nature etc. I researched anbd dug like crazy and started to learn about thimerosal. No more shots , for him. He does have some sensory, mild OCD,attention and transition isssues , but is not autistic. My next two children are not vax at all. DSS has never been involved in our lives over vaccinating, not vaccinating.
You may find your doc tries to force the vaccines on you, scaring you with words like mandatory, etc. Keep tough find a new doc if you have to, and keep in mind the same docs who push all kinds of vaccines on their patients - are the same ones who refuse to get the flu vaccine. Rubella is an issue for mostly pregnant women, yet many OB's do not get the rubella shot.
Practice what you preach I say!
They say - do as I say , not as I do.
