Other, none really fit.

I am vaccinated but with just a couple and only a dose of each. I've had measles, chicken pox and whopping cough, illnesses that is. I actually was vaccinated for measles. My husband has no idea if or what he is vaccinated for. His mom died when he was four, his dad remarried when he was barely five and moved then across country. His dad had no clue about anything to do with the kids medical and his step mom (having her own kids) assumed his previous wife had already had anything he needed done and told the doctor that so nobody really knows. The downside is nobody really knows if he ever had anything like the chicken pox either. He has three much older siblings that know when they had several things like chicken pox and measles but nobody remembers if he had them.

With our kids the oldest was fully vaxed up through Kdg age but nothing after that, she's nearly 16 now. One other had a few vaxes before a year and two others have never had any at all. I wouldn't have given any of them any vaccines if I could do it over.

I also chose other.

I've had one vaccine in my life, given without my parents consent.

My grandfather decided vaccines were a bad idea, so my grandchildren are now the 5th generation to be either unvaxed or selectively vaxed in my family.

I gave my daughter a few vaccines when she was around 8. I regret it as her health (perhaps just a coincidence) took a nosedive after that.

My grandkids are almost totally unvaxed and I think will stay that way.

I chose other, because I vaccinated (with boosters) my two older children, partially vaxxed my son, and did not vax my youngest. I am vaccinated, but on the 1970s schedule and have received no boosters. At present, I wouldn't further vaccinate my son or my youngest. However, this does not mean that I wouldn't consider a couple of them given the circumstance.
