Have you entered my Spring giveaway yet? It ends on the 25th! It’s my coolest one yet.
The other night I was watching Larry King and they were talking about vaccinations and Autism. Boy was it an interesting show. There are a few things I’ve noticed will cause a mommy rivalry one of the biggest is the topic of vaccinations.
I’ve read countless blogs and articles and forums encompassing statements like “Don’t bring your unvaccinated child around mine!” and on the other hand “Vaccines are dangerous.” I have no idea where I’ll stand on the subject line when the time comes but I know I want to do a lot of studying beforehand.
I do, however wonder why someone would be worried about their vaccinated child around an unvaccinated one because if their child is “protected” why would it matter if someone else isn’t? Isn’t that the point of the vaccine?
I don’t know what causes Autism and I’m not going to pretend like I’ve done all of the research to have an opinion one way or another. But I am curious to know your opinions on the matter. Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carey seemed VERY passionate about the topic during Larry King, just as others I’ve met and discussed the topic with.
Have you changed the schedule of your child’s vaccinations out of fear or because of things you’ve read? Are you considering it? Why do or don’t you vaccinate? Any good books your recommend on this topic? SO curious about this topic! Sorry I can’t lean one way or the other one this– I’m just learning.
