Something to consider if you do vaccinate your children: run titres at the time your child is due for their kindergarten boosters around the ages of 5-6 yrs. Often your child still carries adequate immunity to a virus from the earlier vaccines, and boosters are unnecessary. I did this for my Autistic child to work with my MD husband who believes the risk of disease outweighs the risk of harm from vaccines. The only thing my son didn't carry an immunity to was tetanus. All of the others were adequate: the measles, the varicella, the mumps, the polio. He needed none of them based on blood titres.
I have read up to 95% of children do not actually *need* the MMR booster, but we give it anyway because it is easier and less expensive than running titres on everyone. They say that the child's immune system did not respond to the initial shot but why would we think it will respond to the booster? Absolutely no science behind this theory as far as I can tell.
This is so emotionally charged for me. Sorry.
