My husband and I definitely want our kids to get vaccinated (well, aside from the flu shot most likely), but we're starting to think about spacing out the shots. Of course, I haven't read about vaccines since my first was born, and only in mainstream books. I tried looking in my library catalog for books, but there isn't much choice and the ones they do have are all reserved way in advance.<br><br>
Can anyone recommend good websites that go over the risks of each vaccine, and also offer a good schedule? I'm most concerned about live vaccines and, through my brief researching today, I'm starting to worry about toxins that can cross the blood-brain-barrier. BUT.. I'm not interested in sites that have a lot of fear-mongering or sites that advise not vaccinating at all.<br><br>
Anyone who can point me to a good place to start would be hugely appreciated!<br><br>
Thanks!

The Sears vaccine book has a delayed schedule. It's up to date and informative. Perhaps your library has a copy? It is just called the Vaccine Book.<br><br>

i got a lot out of Bob Sears's Vaccine Book. he's definitely pro-vax, but he's very upfront with his agenda and willing to be open-minded to other positions - something i found lacking in the two other vaccine books i read (romm and neustadter). his big area of concern is aluminum - which gave me yet another reason to delay and space out shots.<br><br>
one thing i don't recall him addressing much is any possible relationship of vaccination to allergic and auto-immune conditions. this is an area that really concerns me, as it's hard to see it show up as an immediate vaccine reaction like fever or seizure, say, and yet we have an epidemic of immune conditions among our kids with unknown origin, and it really gives me pause... i would love to find some more credible analysis of the risks in this regard.

That's the one that has a long wait to check out. Maybe I can 'borrow' one of my husband's Borders gift cards that he's been hoarding.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
And congratulations on the pregnancy!

the sears books is definitely helpful if you are pretty willing to vaccinate. some have said it's pro-vacc and that it doesn't help them much, but if you are planning on actually doing any shots, i think it's worth reading.

it may also be in the library of your local LLL groups - call around and ask. i will probably be donating my copy there when i'm done with it. i know it's on the approved library list.

This is a pretty good site. It has a fair amount of disease-specific discussion and links to other places--basics like the CDC pink books, stuff like that. A good place to help decide which vaccines are valuable to you and which to skip, timing issues, stuff like that.

Scroll down to the bottom.<br>
It's a collection of links that I put together. They're not pro-vax, but they're not fearmongering either.
