vaccinations

  1. Maryland, Metro D.C. Area, Delaware
    Hi. I am in a holding pattern with my kids' pediatrician. Their practice initially decided to not allow unvaccinated patients to stay with their practice but then they realized they'd lose a lot of patients and decided to just change to not accepting any further patients who don't vaccinate. My...

I joined this group as an effort to learn more about the anti-vaccination community, and the reasoning behind the choices we make.

    With all the hype surrounding the annual influenza vaccination, it can be hard to figure out if the flu shot is what's right for you and your family. This list of pros and cons might help. I was never one to get a flu shot, or any shot for that matter, if I could help it...until I experienced...

    There are many assumptions about attachment parenting. However, like most parenting philosophies, it is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Attachment parenting, a term coined by Dr. Sears, is a child-centered parenting approach that is said to promote a secure bond between parents and their...

    Hello! I am a senior in the North Bay Area in California and I am conducting a survey of parents across the United States regarding parents' knowledge about vaccinations. If you could please take the time and take my survey, that will be greatly appreciated! All participants will remain...
  8. Selective & Delayed Vaccination
    So, this may be a bit premature, but DH may get an offer to go to Stuttgart (from VA). If so, things will likely happen really fast, so I want to be prepared with all the info. My kids are not vaccinated currently. I have a 5 yo & a 7 month old, as well as a 10 yo (who is partially vaxed-...

    I am due in late October with my first baby and am moving to Beverly. My husband and I are looking for a pediatrician with holistic and alternative approaches who is also supportive of delayed vaccinations. Any recommendations would be lovely!

    I recently read that the two senators in my home state of California will be pushing a bill forward removing vaccine exemptions for children. This will essentially mandate vaccinations for children to enter public school. Frankly, I am horrified. I try not to be riled up by stuff like this, but...
  11. Selective & Delayed Vaccination
    My baby is scheduled to receive her first vaccinations in a few weeks. I'm reading The Vaccine Book by Robert Sears. I'm just interested to find out if anyone else here has read that book and made a modified version of his vaccine schedule. If so, please share your schedule and why you modified...
  12. I'm Not Vaccinating
    Hi all, I have a 3 year old son who was vaccinated up to age 18 months. At that point I began to do heavy research into vaccines, not because of any adverse reactions but more out of curiosity. It was my belief that my own disability may have been a vaccine injury as I had a medical exemption...

  15. Selective & Delayed Vaccination
    When my daughter who is now 4.5, was born I decided to delay vax. First a little background to explain my reasoning (however misguided it might have been), Im a vet tech (with fully vaccinated pets, lol) and we recommend dogs and cats do not get vaccinations until they are 8 weeks old, and...

    <p>So many of us here are so tired of the constant accusations that we are conspiracy theorists.  Conspiracy theorism has become the demeaning label du jour, forecefully applied to those who dare to question or criticize vaccine safety and efficacy.</p> <p> </p> <p>It isn't much comfort to...

    <p>I personally know that a health insurance company in IL, I believe it to be Aetna, contacted the very large Eisenstein practice and asked as to why there was a paucity of claims for asthma and other chronic childhood diseases; the insurance company thought that they had  forgot to send in...
