Quoting O ♥ G:" What vaccinations/shots (vit k?) do you feel are important and why? Just curious to hear some different ... [snip!] ... point I'm against Hep B, Varicella, Rotavirus, MMR, and leaning towards not doing the Polio. Still trying to decide others :/"
I strongly agree with you on the hep B... only I do think it is important, later in life. I do know people with hep B and it can ruin your life, but the only new born who need it IMO are the ones who's Mom have it.
I do not agree with you on the Rotavirus, because they have a newer vaccine out now that dose not have the risk of intussusception that the older vaccine had. So I feel that this vaccines benefits far out weigh the risk. I am not sure I would feel that way if they were still using the older version. that was taken of the market in 1999
If this vaccine is not given your child will get this illness and the risks of this are not ones that I am willing to live with, I am a SAHM who breastfeeds so I did think about not giving this but when i looked into the number of kids who do get it and end up in the hospital I felt it was pretty important for us
I also got the Polio vaccine but I can see how a lot of people could not feel it is important for them. My grandparents had Polio so I have strong feelings about it. the vaccine is one I feel good about so my LO did have it but I think for parents who are trying to give their LO as few vaccines as possible than this is a good one to cut out.
