Vaccinate your child

Yes, I believe in vaccinations.

I want to keep my child’s immune system capable and keep other children safe.

Now, that a lot of parents are choosing to not vaccinate their children…the rates of vaccine-preventable illnesses such as measles and mumps have been on the rise. In most cases it has been the non-vaccinated children.

A must read below

There is absolutely no scientific evidence to conclude vaccinations are unsafe, just that not getting vaccinated can cause significant harm to self and others.

I am just curious and would like some insight as to why parents choose to not vaccinate?

  1. This is a very good topic to be raised. I’m interested in what people’s responses could be about their reasons to not vaccinate. Before I got pregnant I always said I would not vaccinate but something has come over me and I feel like it’s better to be safe than sorry and what gives me that feeling is the knowing that we have been vaccinating babies since our time and even before us. I’m only 3 months but it’s always a thought that comes to mind.

    1. I totally get what you’re saying. I also thought vaccinations were bad because it’s a foreign substance but then I actually did research while I was pregnant and found it’s not the case at all. It’s tough to differentiate in today’s world what is and what isn’t. But I firmly believe it’s best to be vaccinated. It’s too much risk to expose our children because we have “doubts.” Thanks for stopping by love ❤️❤️

  2. I do also choose to vaccinate my child. Although, I do not allow him to get the flu shot. In my years as a child and young adult the few instances I got the flu shot made me more sick, sick for longer, and I feel my immune system became so weak during the season I was vaccinated with it, I became vulnerable to everything.

  3. I had a friend recommended The Vaccine Book by Dr Sears and it was hugely helpful! A must read for parents. I’m very much for vaccines, but also very much for knowing and understanding why they are needed, how they work, and what is in them. It’s hard to find very objective resources our there.. It’s mostly “vaccines are evil!” vs. “just do it because science!”.. but this book gives all the info you need to know pretty objectively. It explains every vaccine in détail- what’s in it, how it works, the level of risk in skipping it, side effects and how common they are, and the primary reasons some people reject it (with an assessment of the validity of those reasons). It’s a great book to recommend to an anti vax parent.

    1. Thank you so much for the recommendation! That is a great and widely education book for moms who are hesitant and Need “more” information. I research everything, maybe a little extensively but I feel it’s worth knowing.
