DD is 20 months. I have been able to hold off any decisions about vaccinating her by saying I'll start at age 2. My family practitioner is great and hasn't pressured me one way or the other. Still as we get closer to her 2nd birthday (Dec) I've heard a few people ask about when we'll start. What kills me here is a lot of vaccines I thought were important (ie: polio) I am now questioning. Dd only visits western Europe (France, Ireland) and here at home. A lot of infant vaccines it sounds like aren't as scary once they hit 2, (eg: pertussis, rotavirus, hib).
Is there really any vaccine out there that is imperative necessary after age 2 ere in the states? Bear in mind I am not looking at the herd idea; I look only at MY daughter here. I already have two boys with autism (high functioning autism and aspergers) and am not willing to play Russian roulette with my daughter to protect someone else's baby. Sounds harsh, but experience has given me a thick skin.
