Quoting anonymom + 1.5:" When a care provider asks you (non-judgementally) what your reasons on, how do you respond? I lock up ... [snip!] ... curious but I went completely blank and felt like an idiot (okay... he's kind of uber attractive so... maybe that's why)."
Ouch, I just realized what state you are in. Hardest state to be a non vaxxer. Kudos to you. When I am asked I immediately start blabbering about all the neurotoxins, the press releases the FDA has made about the manufacturing of, the side effects in the clinical trials are about the same risk as a major side effect for the disease and for us the risk isn't worth it. One analogy I always use is if I were to have a 1000 guns lined up with 100 rounds in each, and I was told all rounds are blank, but in one single gun there was a single bullet then asked to pick one up and shoot it at my child, chances are really good that I will not kill my child. But that very slim chance I could, isn't worth it. Same goes for vaccines. I am playing roulette either way, and for me, doing everything naturally to keep their immune systems up to par is far less risky than a synthetic booster filled with neurotoxins.
