What is delay vac & why?

You can regularly find me on the SAHM board but lurked in here since my 2 month old recieved her first vaccines yesterday.


My DS was vaccinated on time w/ every vaccine. This was due to him being in daycare @ the time & lets face it, not vaccinating isn't always "socially acceptable."


However, since becoming a SAHM I've begun to wonder how neccessary the vaccines would be for DD.


Why do you choose to delay & at what point do you start to delay it? I would prefer to wait until DD is a year old before introducing her to vaccines any further. But is now the time to start delaying them or is 4 months too young to delay? (As that is when she is scheduled to recieve more)


In the dr. office yesterday I overheard the nurse talking to a hospital rep saying that they'd seen 2 cases of chicken pox already that morning from children who weren't vaccinated. But again, since DD doesn't leave the house much what are her chances of being exposed?


I'm just confused. It's a war within myself. I know what I want to do but just like a lot of people don't know if it's the right thing to do. That's why this whole delay thing sounds so good to me....

Thank you!


I certainly have a lot of research to do.


I should have elaborated on my autism statement in the original post.


My friend has 5 neices & nephews, all bothers & sisters. None of them were vaccinated & 4 of them have been diagnosed w/ autisim. So it was a personal connection between the two for her.

1) get the vaccine safety manual, 2009 edition by Neil Z. Miller


2) your state has a religious and medical exemption for vaccinations; they are not required. See: http://www.nvic.org/Vaccine-Laws/state-vaccine-requirements/missuori.aspx

The other thing you would want to research is NSAIDs (ie: tylenol) and what giving them during a fever or a fever and rash can do to your child.

Since society is so effed-up, I don't see all the hoopla about being "socially" accepted, KWIM?

IOW, I want my kids to be better than what I see society producing today.

I waited two years to begin vaccinating my son. He was only given certain vaccines.

If I could go back in time, he would not have gotten the ones he got. I learned the hard way. He's not autistic or anything but he did get the chickenpox despite being vaccinated for chickenpox. (I was told my husband would die if we didn't get the chickenpox vaccine...not even true ). The one vaccine he did not get was Pertussis because my brother was left brain damaged within hours of the DPT vaccine. He (my son) has been exposed to Pertussis - he didn't get it, despite NOT being vaccinated for Pertussis. You just have to wonder...

So I did. I wondered. Then I began reading material not published by the pharma-mafia. Then I saw the light. :)

Welcome to the board!

"& don't know why these vaccines are supposed to add to that. Heck, the two probably aren't even connected."

I'm sure this is a repeat - BUT ---

Oh yes, they are connected. But to hear modern medicine speak, it's all just one big commercial...

There's a lot you don't know, it's complicated but so worth the learning experience. :)

I would hang on to that one friend of yours who told you her/his kid was autistic and never vaccinated. You may have questions for her/him one day and such families are rare. I always have to wonder in instances like that, how vaccinated the parents were, during conception of the autistic child?

Hi!


We have decided (although there are no reported dire symptoms) that we will definitely no longer vaccinate my daughter with the HiB vaccine. There is more of the anit-virus (or whatever you wanna call it) in the breastmilk she is given then the vaccine. So why take the risk, right?


I am still researching the others.


However, you will be glad to know that I am not getting the flu vaccine (and definitely not the H1N1 vac.) for my 2.5 year old. I am uncomfortable with the amount of mercury & virus injected.


Instead, my DH, parents & MIL got the flu shot to have the extra protection around the kids.


I'm still researching thanks to the amazing resources I've been given by you girls,

Just wanted to point out that the flu vaccine is available in single-dose syringes that have no preservatives in them, so you wouldn't need to worry about mercury.

Also .. the flu vaccine has no live virus .. only split-inactivated virus (killed virus particle), which can in no way result in infection with the influenza virus as a result of receiving the vaccine.
