I have 4 children, my 2 older both have been diagnosed with ADHD (part of the autisim spectrum!) and my 3 1/2 year old is almost done with his and my 2 almost 2 year old is probably over 1/2 way done with his.<br><br>
I wonder, what the ramifications of not finishing the vax would be? I am just coming to find out the negative's of vaxing and am horrified that I signed the papers and now 2 of my children have ADHD! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I feel like a horrible mother!!!!! I want so badly to take them all back, re-do what I already did but I can't. But what I CAN do is to NOT put my signature on that line saying I give consent to injections for my children.<br><br>
My concern for my littlest ones is: is the damage already done??? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

My ds's name is Keagan <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
As far as the consequences of not finishing, there really aren't any. As a matter of fact, your dc could well be as immune to most diseases as they ever will be.<br>
For example, after 2 doses of ipv (at 2 and 4 mos, I think) 98% of people are immune. After the booster at 18 mos, 99% are immune. <a href="http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr4905a1.htm" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr4905a1.htm</a><br><br>
Same basic idea for most vaxes. For DTaP, it's 3 doses is considered "fully vaxed" (I think 70-80% are immune- but the numbers not much higher with more doses) and the 4th and 5th doses are more reactive.<br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr4913a1.htm" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr4913a1.htm</a><br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00048610.htm" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00048610.htm</a><br><br>
I have more cdc links like that for other vaxes. You can do a search with my name, or ask and I'll post them.<br><br>
About the damage being done, I think that NOT vaxing further, is the only way to prevent any more damage.

My advice would be to put the rest of the vaccination on hold until you've done sufficient research. You can always continue vaccinating if you decide to. You can NOT take any back if you continue (as you know).

This is what I was hoping to see! Thank you so much for replying to my concerns. I use to be VERY pro-vax and had been in some seriously heated debates in the past about them LOL Look at me now! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br><br>
Anyway, isn't Keegan/Keagan a great name? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
