My DD goes in for her two month visit on Monday, April 21 and I have been dreading it because of vaccinations. I do not trust the pharmaceutical companies at all and think they are all out to make money regardless of human best interest. My DS is 13 and I have noticed that there are far more vaccines today than he had.
I feel scared to vaccinate and scared not to vaccinate, which makes me torn. My DH is dead set against vaccinations and does not trust our government at all. I definitely do not want to give her 6 at a time. I stopped vaccinating my pets years ago and so did my parents. We have noticed a huge increase in their life span. Before the cats or dog would get cancer between 8-10 years and now they are going strong at 15. I have never had a problem with the animals getting sick from not vaccinating. Although I do give them the rabies shot every three years since I live in the mountains and it is mandatory for licensing.
Back to my DD. I feel torn. I am worried about ill effects of vaccinating, wondering if it is truly necessary (DS still got chicken pox with the vaccination), and then worrying about her getting ill if I do not vaccinate. Any advice or opinions on either side of this debate? I'd love to hear input from others while making this decision. Also, does anyone know of any good books I could pick up and read before my appointment or any good websites to check out? I'd love to hear intelligent information from a credible source that does not have ties to the medical industry and can remain neutral on the subject.
Also, which vaccines are more necessary and which ones can you do without? Thanks.
