What's your opinion on vaccinations?
We've heard the conspiracies, we have heard them bunked, we've heard them supported. To vaccinate or not to vaccinate?
Most vaccinations should be recieved, such as HPV and meningitis. But not the flu shot.
My opinion changed once I had children. One of them is allergic to the multi shot vaccine given to babies. It was a horrible reaction with tons of pain and a super high fever at age 6 mths. Now the doctors won't vaccinate her with anything. On top of that she will not be allowed to attend public schools here because they require them.
I find it stupid that children are required to be vaccinated when our bodies should be our one and only thing that we have ultimate control of.
With that said, I don't care what others choose to do, but after learning what happened with my daughter is common, no one in my house will be getting any more vaccines.
I wont get in a debate here on the whole vac thing, but I've got some experience in this department. If you need help drafting a letter to help get your kids into public schools without vaccines you can email me.
Thank you Christin. I'm okay for another 2 years. Honestly by then I think my faith in the public school system will be zero.
I'm indifferent. I think some vaccinations are neccessary...others, not so much. For babies, I'd rather have the shots spread out.
I do not get flu shots. And I wrote about why here: http://blissfulwriter.hubpages.com/hub/ … a-Flu-Shot
As for babies, the vaccination schedule is too many shots and too close together. If you are going give babies vaccination, skips some of the less important ones and delay them and spread them out. Use single vaccines and not multi-shot vaccines.
As for vaccinations and autism, it is controversial, but take a read of this ...

All my children gone through the standard vaccinations as a preventive measures. And those are good and necessary.
When comes to traveling, we also get ourselves vaccinated for preventive measures as well since we do not want to be caught up with something unknown in our vacation.
I think Polio and Smallpox have proven vaccines to be a good thing. I don't mind getting the flu though, I like to make my body work for it. Why wouldn't I want some easy days off work anyways!
I have seen too many bad side affects of vaccinations to ever support them. The combination of multiple vaccines into one shot is stupid and careless. My brother almost died from a vaccination, and my daughter ended up in the hospital with 105 degree fever. She also went from a normally progressing child to one who tested on the spectrum for autism.
Personally I have seen too much bad, read too many unbiased medical reports to ever believe the government again on the matter of vaccines or medicine. Medications are the same way, go to the dr to get treated for a stomach problem, develop a side effect that requires another drug, then develop another, and so on and so forth. Eventually you are taking 7 pills a day when all you had was stomach acid. Its pathetic.
I need to know what's in it exactly so I can do research. Also a vaccination should target a specific thing.
I think vaccines are definitely a great advancement of modern science, and have helped many diseases here in the US and in other countries. I think that in some ways though it is gone to far - do I agree all children should be vaccinated against polio and rubella? Absolutely. Is it really necessary to get vaccinated against chicken pox if you haven't had it by age 5? In my opinion no. Basically I think for things which are deadly, highly contagious etc. or which can only really be prevented through a shot (i.e. polio, MMR, tetanus etc.) then I am all for the vaccines, but when it comes to things like chicken pox, flu shot, Gardasil/HPV then I think we should get to make our own decisions.
The ingredients list alone frightens me. The majority of vaccines are full of heavy metals as well as such things as stem cells taken from aborted human fetuses, monkeys and pigs. If lead paint causes such a panic, then why is there mercury in our vaccines? These ingredients (used as binding agents for combined vaccines) are poisons that we willingly inject into our childrens' bodies, often unknowingly because we accept the vaccine schedule given to us by the CDC.
In 1986 children received a total of ten vaccines. I'm not great at doing searches, but in articles that I've read it's been suggested that in 2012 children were required to receive as many as 30+ vaccines. And the number is rising.
For example, children are required in some states to receive a vaccination for HPV, which is a sexually transmitted disease. Twelve year olds are being vaccinated against this STD, and for what reason? One of my friends (a virgin) was required to take this vaccine in order to go to college. Why? She's in control of her own sex life, shouldn't she know whether or not she needs to be vaccinated against something that is only transmitted through sexual intercourse?
Every year the list gets longer. Why? Many parents don't even know what they're vaccinating against, let alone what is in the vaccines that they're injecting into their children (and themselves).
Many of the illnesses we vaccinate for aren't catastrophic, let alone deadly. There are exceptions. People with depressed immune systems need to do everything they can to prevent disease, and of course nobody wants to see another polio epidemic. It's happened recently, too, but the polio vaccine may be dangerous in and of itself.
The decision is very individual, but the best thing for your immune system is natural medicine, including good nutrition, hygiene and exercise. Our bodies weren't made to have toxins put into them in the name of preventing disease. No matter how you cut it, these heavy metals are toxins.
Check vaccine ingredients. As far as I'm concerned, that's all you need to know. No theory: just fact.

I'm not sure if this subject has been presented yet (I feel like it would have been, but I couldn't find it): what do you feel about vaccination vs. anti-vaccination? Do you feel it has been substantially linked to health problems such as autism, etc.? Does not vaccinating endanger others' lives?...

I am still very much on the fence when it comes to this topic. With health nuts saying doctors will tell you anything, and vaccines cause side effects. Then you have doctors, saying without them our society is doomed. With the recent outbreak, or what we are told is a recent outbreak of diseases...

"The vaccine program is based on financial interests, not health, as serious side effects are routinely ignored and ineffective and/or harmful products continue to be used" There is evidence all over the Internet to support this, albeit from "unofficial" sources, whilst...
