after reading loads of papers and studies decided to not give E any of the jabs.
My main reasons are that the age we give them is way to young for them to cope with (especially when there is more than one) and that I do not think that one way to treat every single person can be right.
Me or my sister were not vaccinated and my sister got measels and I got whopping cough. It was really awful as it is when a child gets ill and can be very scary and dangerous (obviously life threatening sometimes) but GETTING ILL IS A PART OF LIFE. If we come through it ok it helps us grow, makes us stronger and contributes to the people we are.
I had two appointments with the doc (who was amazing) who went through all the stats of the chance of a baby (who was under 1, not in nursery) getting these illnesses, what would happen if she got it and how it would be treated. I then weighed that up with what I would do if something that was put inside her while I held her down changed her or even worse. What helped me make up my mind was this website www.thinktwice.com
I'm not saying I will never get any vaccinations. I would like to get some of them (tetanus and men) done one at a time and space them out over a few years but that isn't an option in this country. When making enquires I was told that there ''isn't call for this as parents don't want to have to keep getting there children injected''. I feel that this is really wrong (which every doc I have spoken to about this agrees). If children had one jab at a time over a space of time it wouldn't be such an overload and you could isolate and potential problems that your child may have. I think as parents we should deal with the fact that it is hard but this is a better way rather than taking the 'fastest' and 'least fuss' route.
Sorry for the long rant!!
