My dd is getting ready to turn three, but she has had very limited vacs. In fact the only ones she has gotten are because of the doctor putting pressure on us, and my neglectful lack of knowledge. I absolutely refused to give her any until after she turned 1 and she has never gotten more than one at a time. The last few that she got gave her a fever and bad crankies. I am always afraid that the next one is the one that will do irreversible damage. I don't know if I would be making things worse if I just stopped in the middle. I could kick myself for not knowing more. I don't know the laws about vacs in my state, just hearsay. And I don't know which vacs do what. I have avoided the hep B because I was told by dd first doc that it is given to babies for two reasons 1. the younger the child, the better the effect of the shot and 2. the real worry for hep B is when the child is a teen, but it is harder to get a teen to go in for hep B than a baby that doesn’t have a choice.
I have avoided the books because I don’t have a long attention span and I hear that so much of the research is contradictory. Is there such a thing as an easy reading non biased book on vacs?
Also, if anyone has info they will share about the laws pertaining to vacs in NC, I am listening! Where do you find the answers to the legal questions? Is there a book?
