|Hmmm, if it is so rare, I wonder why it is required here? They don't even require Chicken pox (yet!). Thanks everyone though. DS was breastfed until he weaned and he doesn't attend daycare. I think I will continue to skip these shots.|

I have decided completely against the MMR, chicken pox, Hep B and the rest of the Polio shots. But, I'm undecided about Hib. Does DS need it? And, what exactly does it prevent? I tried to search the forum here, but "hib" is too short a word to search. So, if you could help me out, that would be great. DS has had 2 Hib shots thus far, but I am completely open to stopping them altogether. They are required for school in our state, but if I got with the Philosophical exemption I plan on just claiming he never had any shots.
