I’m not against vaccinations. I just think that parents have a right to make an informed decision about whether or not to vaccinate. I respect the decisions that parents make on behalf of their children. I also support greening our vaccines.
In our case, my intuition strongly told me not to vaccine my child, but we selectively vaccinated him because my husband felt strongly about the importance of vaccinating. If I could turn back time, I would not have vaccinated him as I know now that immuno-compromised children are at the highest risk of vaccine injury. Furthermore, there is a lot of scientific research, as well as countless stories that demonstrate that vaccines can result in autism, brain damage, seizures, increase of infections, asthma, as well as death.

A look at the vaccine schedule and autism rates here.
- “My daughter was born in 1994 and was vaccinated according to the schedule. We were a military family at the time. I don’t know if you’ve ever been in the military, but there is a pressure on parents to comply with military regulations, including the CDC’s recommended vaccine schedule. In fact, did you know that the children of military parents are the most highly vaccinated children in the United States? “Coincidentally” (I just LOVE that word!), the incidence of autism among children of military parents is much higher than the rate of autism in the general population. (Now that IS an interesting coincidence!) In 2007, when the CDC announced that autism affected 1 in 150 U.S. children, the rate among children of military families was 1 in 82.” Read entire open letter here.
