There is this girl on my facebook who is complaining because her pediatrician is giving her a hard time because she does not want her children to have all of the vaccinations. She wants to pick and choose which ones.
Can someone please educate me on why someone would not want their children vaccinated?
Also, where we live the schools request the vaccination records and if your child is not up to date they send letters home... what happens if the parents refuse to vaccinate?
EDITED TO ADD AFTER 3 PAGES OF COMMENTS: I still fail to see the benefits from not vaccinating your children and it seems that those who do not vaccinate just get upset and turn to insults instead of educating someone on their decision
Religious reasons, allergy reasons, medical reasons, philosophical reasons- just to name a few.. I can go on and on and on and on. There are countless reasons, but the pro-vaxers will just tell you it's because we are lazy and dont care about our childrens wellbeing.
Public schools MUST take an exemption form. Almost all states (but two) have up to 3 different exemption reasoning's; medical, religious, philosophical.

I am done vaxing my ds until he is 4, he has not gotten the MMR, chickenpox, or flu, hes 22 months old. After reading whats in them I am holding off until hes older, if he gets them at all. And most states have exemptions.

a lot of people believe that certain vax's cause austism..i'm sure there are other reasons thats just the most common one i hear. ive also heard that you can sign a paper if your kids are not vaxed to send them to school..not sure what the paper is or what it means but thats what i've heard
Well, some of the viruses that are used to make vaccines are grown in stem cells that originated from aborted babies. Some people are so agianst abortion that they feel it condones the abortion to use the vaccination. At least that is why you can get a religious waiver.
