I am expecting a baby shortly and would like to research weather or not to vaccinate, but am not sure where to begin.<br><br>
Could someone please point me in a good direction of some info on why or why not to vaccinate ? ~ Pixie

I don't have the technical savvy to paste a post from another thread, but this is great from I'mmykid$mommy:<br><br>
For an even handed treatment of the issue I recommend "Vaccinations, A Thoughfull Parents Guide" by Aviva Romm, and "Naturally Healthy Babies and Children: A Commonsense Guide to Herbal Remedies, Nutrition, and Health" by Aviva Romm for keeping your dc healthy and treating "VPDs".<br><br><br>

You can search the VAERS database for reactions to recommended vaccinations.<br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>

Vaccines are Not Mercury-Free:<br><a href="http:/a/mercury7.html" target="_blank">http://www.*********/a/mercury7.html</a><br><br>
To find out what exemptions are offered by your state (for school and such) check here:<br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br>
All states except West Virginia and Mississippi offer religious and/or philosophical exemptions, and the supreme court ruled that you do not have to belong to a non-vaxing religion or have clergy sign your religious exemption.<br><br>
Some basic questions to ask yourself...<br><br>
What is the disease?<br>
If my child gets it, what are possible complications?<br>
How likely and how severe are those complications?<br>
What should I do to prevent those complications or to properly support my child through the disease?<br>
What is in the vaccine?<br>
How likely and how severe are the various complications?<br>
Can I treat those complications? If so, how?<br><br>
Start making a list or packet of articles for each disease and vaccine. This then turns into a super in dept pro/con list. And it takes a lot of fear out of the equation. Use all sorts of sites and books to get your info. Identify the bias and then take that into account. You'll be surprised at how much info you can find from the CDC that (as long as you look at the info and not the conclusions) lean toward not vaxing!<br><br>
We do not vaccinate and I would go through any amount of hassle, and if I did not have a philo exemption I would lie out my arse, to protect my child from what I have found to be harmful.<br><br>
Also, you do not have to go to a ped, your child can see a FP or even a chiropractor.<br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br>
