It's a tough call today, Basil. Do you see anything that might suggest your child having a tendency toward Autism? I've heard that some children develop this after having immunizations. Usually multiple immunizations in a single injection. Some people whose child develops autism choose to still have their next child vaccinated, but with the serum given separately from one another. I believe that the mercury has been removed from those injections now because of the rise in autism rates and the controversy therein. Some people, obviously, choose not to have their children vaccinated at all, which poses other risks. It's a tough call.

I didn't have any of my kids vaccinated, because I got to watch a two month old go into convulsions when my first child was a newborn and I started doing some research on it and I just decided against it. If you have ever seen a two month old go into convulsions and then the doctors say there was not much they could do It makes you wonder. You think about it now they give newborns these vaccinations these babies just started thier lives they do not have a hold on it yet, I didn't agree with the two month old babies getting it I exspecially didn't like them giving them to newborns.

Hi, Basil.

If I knew, back then, what I know today, I would have only given them the PWFD and NOT given them ANY vaccinations.

You might ask your Chiropractor for an opinion since they have found that exuberent health is the best protection against any complications of the "childhood diseases".

Someday we all will know what long term effects vaccination has on chronic conditoins later in life. For now, it is an unknown risk.

here's an informative site to help you decide :)

I can understand the reticence to vaccinate, but on the other hand one must consider the practicalities of raising a child on the PWFD, unless you live in a monastery. The child will have friends, and will go to parties, camps, and school, where atrocious SAD diet snacks will abound. How will you preserve perfect immunity in that situation? You can control the diet at home, but home is not your child's only environment, especially as the child gets older.

Then there is the issue of school itself. Kids can't go to school without proof of immunization. Home school? Can you afford to do that?

My guess is that the PWFD and other health-enhancing strategies on this BB will help to ameliorate the likely ill effects of immunization on kids. That, and trying to delay each shot to allow the child's natural immunity to mature. Oh, and making sure the child gets breast milk exclusively until one year -- never any formula -- and breast milk into the second and third years, if possible.
Good luck.

It depends on which state you live in, whether or not your kids can attend school without immunizations. Different states have provisions for different exemptions (medical, religious and/or personal exemptions).

If it is decided that a parent MUST vaccinate the child then I would look into finding out if there is a source of thimerosol free vaccines and also, vaccinate at later ages and no more than one or two vaccinations at a time. (not the 8 or so they assault babies with in one day).

I have heard of children here where I live getting into school without their shots, of course you have to have a reason. I decided to homeschool all my chilren and have not had to worry about shots I have a 17 year old fixing to graduate at the end of May and I think it has been fun teaching her I have enjoyed it. I still have three other children I am teaching at home. I have purposely taken my children around other shildren that had the three day measles and chickenpoks and none of them have come down with any of it. I felt like that would give them a little immunity.

Vaccines still aren't safe enough in my book. My four year old son has never received any vaccines to date and will start kindergarden this fall with a "religious" exemption.

If you do decide to vaccinate, listen to Ellie K. Her advivce is right on target.

Hi, Ellie K.

I thought these kids were less than 3 years old. "As the twig is bent so does the tree grow!"
