Hello Fellow Parents....


My 3 year old daughter has been vaccinated on time with the recommended CDC schedule since birth.

Personally, I'm not concerned about either.


I also believe, IMHO, when discussion comes about regarding shedding, it's not that someone is concerned that catching said virus is going to be any worse as opposed to the wild; but instead is used as a point that catching whatever is not necessarily from

Hyperminimally? Surely you were provided with evidence of such a claim then?

I'm not irrationally afraid of attenuated or wild virus, but the notion that attenuated virus cannot make a person sick is rubbish. Plenty of live vaccines were attenuated before reverting to full virulence, so it's probably best not rely upon the definition of the word 'just because'. It is entirely dependent upon symptomology. No symptoms does NOT equal 'not sick'. Unless you're vaccinated of course.

Makes sense to me. Thanks!

I have said this before (recently) I am not afraid of either the actual virus nor the shedded virus for my family.

Honest question:
If you are not concerned with your child contracting swine flu in the wild, why would you care about vaccine shedding?

Is there some concern that the shedding would cause an unvaccinated child to acquire a more dangerous strain?

As far as daycare and bubbles, the grocery store, Target or Walmart could be just as big of a concern.

I'm sorry if my questions seem ignorant.

Maybe some find your delivery to be a bit of a turn off. You are right though, you aren't obligated to educate anyone here.


Take care. Maybe

I'm no longer here to educate the ignorant. I used to be, but now I see that its a waste of time, and in the end, hopeless. Besides, the children that I educate today are bright enough to read first, then think they know something. Unlike the few here that, btw, I'm NOT paid to educate. I'm done, regardless.

And my profession is Accountant, not educator. So you can rest easy.

<< What made you respond for BPmomo2? >>

I wasn't responding for her. You directly quoted me and insulted what I wrote. I don't post under multiple names and never have (that's the game I don't play). If you'd like to do some research as to my debate style, you can check out the SAHM/WOHM debate board. I find it interesting that your conclusion from someone agreeing with me was that we are the same person. I am not bpmomo2, but you're free to believe whatever you want.

I have to say I am very disappointed that as an educator that you find it acceptable to refer to anyone as "stupid." Educating others is an opportunity not to be taken lightly. At the same time we all need to strive to continue our own educations on both sides of this debate. Part of being an effective educator imo
