Nothing better then irresponsible and misinformed parents, who doubt known prevention of life threatening diseases while grasping knowledge from comedy actor and known frauds...
I've interacted with similar in RL, some of them did not like to vaccinate their kids, risking their life and then having to do all vaccines at once when they are informed that kids can't go to public school, where it would be a risk to other kids. Just imagine, taking those vaccines 2-3 per doctor visit or take them all in 2-3 visits... must be nightmare to have parent like that...
And then those calls to 'inform yourself', while ignoring that we eradicated most of child killing diseases, and most likely not thanks to ignorant parents like OP.
But this story has dark turn, because people like this are responsible that in some parts of the world people don't believe not only in vaccination, but also to other medical prevention or for example simple filtration of water?! This is where this story turns into nightmare and costs human life.
So yeah, inform your self... as acting this irrationally you might cost someone else life, or thanks to your misinformation, children might die from what is preventable disease...
And stay away form public places and school if you like to keep your kids not vaccinated...

so hopefully this can put the mmr =autism debate to rest
It has been suggested that vaccination against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) is a cause of autism.
Full Text of Background...
We conducted a retrospective cohort study of all children born in Denmark from January 1991 through December 1998. The cohort was selected on the basis of data from the Danish Civil Registration System, which assigns a unique identification number to every live-born infant and new resident in Denmark. MMR-vaccination status was obtained from the Danish National Board of Health. Information on the children's autism status was obtained from the Danish Psychiatric Central Register, which contains information on all diagnoses received by patients in psychiatric hospitals and outpatient clinics in Denmark. We obtained information on potential confounders from the Danish Medical Birth Registry, the National Hospital Registry, and Statistics Denmark.
Full Text of Methods...
Of the 537,303 children in the cohort (representing 2,129,864 person-years), 440,655 (82.0 percent) had received the MMR vaccine. We identified 316 children with a diagnosis of autistic disorder and 422 with a diagnosis of other autistic-spectrum disorders. After adjustment for potential confounders, the relative risk of autistic disorder in the group of vaccinated children, as compared with the unvaccinated group, was 0.92 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.68 to 1.24), and the relative risk of another autistic-spectrum disorder was 0.83 (95 percent confidence interval, 0.65 to 1.07). There was no association between the age at the time of vaccination, the time since vaccination, or the date of vaccination and the development of autistic disorder.
Full Text of Results...
This study provides strong evidence against the hypothesis that MMR vaccination causes autism.

He wasn't 'fussy'....he was screaming bloody murder for several hours straight. A pain cry. I'm his mother, I can tell the difference between cries. I can be in another room and he can start crying and I can tell if he's fallen off something or if someone has taken something away from him. I'm telling you there was something wrong. And for it to be dismissed as 'fussiness' makes me question the medical establishment more than trust it.
And yes, if your child has an adverse reaction to a vaccine and you give them the booster anyway the next reaction is likely to be worse than the first one. The vaccine companies, the CDC, doctors, everyone recommends NOT giving a particular vaccine again if your child had a reaction to it.
