It strikes me as weird that you would consider protecting your pets but not your children.
Some of these illnesses you potentially protect your kids against could make them infertile or even kill them.
But of course - it is a valid point that we need a good epidemic to wipe out some of the surplus population.
It doesnt seem weird to me at all
My thinking is that their is more at stake with my flesh and blood children than a pet, I couldnt care less if a vaccine made my cats infertile as they will be neutered anyway. Also I had heard some of the issues with vaccines take decades to develop and if its the same with pet vaccines well I doubt they would be around long enough for it to be an issue.
Plus with kids if everyone elses kids are immunised then theres little chance my kids will ever come into contact with these diseases they are meant to be protected against
