I stopped vaccinating my son after a bad reaction to a series of shots at his 1yr ck up (Chicken pox, MMR are two of the three given at that time) He has since been diagnosed with Apraxia. My son is now three and will be starting a special ed. program at the elementry school.
We have to make a choice before Sept 2nd (that's when to ped. appt is) to get the Dtap shot or to sign a waiver before school starts. I've heard from a mom in my area that the health dept. has mercury/thermisol free vaccines due to the amount of people coming in. I didn't 100% understand that. I hear so many stories about children being affected by the vaccines and besides the obvious I just want to know for sure... these people stop all vaccines from there on? Or do you just stop the obvious harmful vaccines?
If you have stopped vaccinating altogether, did you sign the waiver? Does your state still threaten you after that? Do you have to explain why along with signing the waiver?
