I chose "Vaccinated and have not had any VPDS" because DD is actually mostly up-to-date on her vaccinations and is only now due for more. So though we have decided to stop vaccinating further, she is technically up-to-date and has not gotten any VPDS. Thought I hope she gets the wild strain of CP naturally whilst she is young.

Jason has had DTP x 5, MMR x 1 (I'm pretty sure he got measles FROM the vax, but without documentation, there's no way to prove it ), Hib x 4, OPV x 5, Hep B x 3 (so, technically he is fully vax'd without the Td or MMR boosters) Jason had chicken pox at 23 months (8/92), the measles rash & pertussis at 13.

Chase has had DTP X3, Dtap x 2 (wasn't licensed under 18 months at the time), OPV x 5, Hib x 4, MMR x 2, Hep B x 3, Td (because my ex husband is a moron and only listens to half of what I say and is too stupid to understand the other half) As far as I can recall, he's only had chicken pox - for which the vaccine was new. The group I worked for wasn't using it wiht their own kids yet, and the group that my sister worked for - the male doc in that practice was VERY selective in what vaccines his kids received (and this was in the early 90's)


Liam is unvaccinated - caught pertussis from Jason at 14 months (I'm still trying to figure out what on earth the big deal was. Yup, it was a pita for sure, but it was just a cough - he nursed like a madman, we went back once a week to make sure it wasn't turning into pneumonia and wasn't losing weight - he never got pneumonia and the little turkey actually gained weight (he was pretty much still exclusively breastfeeding. His solid intake was minimal at best) He has had chicken pox 2/2007.


Olivia is unvaccinated - she's only had chicken pox in 2/2007


As big as my family is, if there was something going to go wrong with a childhood disease, I can't imagine that we wouldn't have seen it by now. My parents have over 50 grand children and great grandchildren.
