<span style="font-size:small;">Check this out! from the CDC:<br><br>
"If a person reports a severe (anaphylactic) allergy to latex, vaccines supplied in vials or syringes that contain natural rubber should not be administered unless the benefit of vaccination outweighs the risk for a potential allergic reaction."<br><br>
REMEMBER that latex cross reacts with a lot of foods and nuts, including peanuts. THIS MAY BE A GOOD TABLE FOR EXEMPTIONS!<br><br>
The following table lists each vaccine and whether it has latex rubber, check the package insert for the vaccine in question.<br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/latex-table.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pin...atex-table.pdf</a><br><br><br>

I would worry less about nuts and cross reactions and more about bananas and avocados! Here is a good chart.<br><br><a href="http://www.latexallergylinks.org/GreerLabs.html" target="_blank">http://www.latexallergylinks.org/GreerLabs.html</a>

I agree, but nut allergies are so common, it might opt-out a lot more kids!<br><br>

My dd is allergic to bananas and avocados and was partially vaxed on schedule. Once I realized she had a bunch of allergies and that it was crazy to be vaxing a child with her allergies I stopped. But I wish I hadn't vaxed her at all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
