I thought the only issue with people opting out of vaccines was because of the mercury in them. My pediatrician is very pro-vax and I guess I just trusted her. She did her residency at a highly regarded children’s hospital where she said she saw a lot of families dealing with the heartache of vaccine preventable diseases because they did not have a choice as to whether or not their children would be vaccinated. She said the parents there would have given their right arm to have access to the vaccines we have here in the United States. So I followed my pediatrician’s vaccine schedule. My ds is now 5 1/2 months old and I just came across the vaccine forum and started reading threads from it this morning. I am now crying and I feel really ill. I feel really scared. Ds has had his two month and four month old shots and is scheduled for his six month old shots in two weeks. Should I cancel? I don't have a medical degree (just a B.A. in psychology) and honestly, I feel like some of the information in the stickies is over my head. I really want to do the best for my ds. He has GERD and is on two different types of medicine given twice daily. Other than that he appears to be healthy. I really want to keep it that way. Any advice would be really appreciated. Thanks mamas.
