I read in some magazine-Time I believe-a while back about the actual necessity of certain vaccines. Alot of people talked about how some of the
vaccines caused severe problems, even mental retardation in young children who were otherwise born completely normal. I know that here in the states
you cannot start school without having certain vaccines, so as a parent you ultimately have no choice whether you have your child vaccinated or not,
if you want your child in school.
I know it's a difficult decision for a parent because if you don't have your child vaccinated, then they could of course come down with some
life-threatening illness but on the other hand if you do-then they could become brain damaged or die. There were actually parents comments in the
magazine that absolutely 'refused' to have their little ones vaccinated. And doctors who spoke of the low side affects of certain vaccines.
So here's my questions and concern..Do you think it's absolutely necessary? Did you even study the vaccines before having them given to your child?
Or did you just do it..no questions asked because 'they' tell us we have to? Also, if you are from another country, are certain vaccines required
there as well?
