My husband and I have been toying with the idea of no-vaccinations. The reason being is because I wasn't vaccinated as a child and he was. When I was 17 I received about 7 vaccinations at once because I was at a doctor's office who insisted I needed them. I became very sick for about a week afterwards and I thought, "why did I do this!?" I never came down with anything before getting my vaccinations but I also know that there is a possibility that my daughter may come in contact with diseases such as Polio.
My parents never gave me a reason for not allowing vaccinations and so I feel that I am not educated enough to make a good decision for my daughter.
So my questions are:
What vaccinations are OK to skip?
What are the positives and negatives to vaccinations?
What age should we vaccinate our daughter, if we chose to do so?
