On the Topic of Vaccines
Sadie commented a while back:
I'd be interested in uM's points of view on vaccinations in general. All or none? Some or one? Younger or older? What if you travel abroad? And so on. I know this is a loaded topic, and perhaps this isn't the right thread for it. But i looked around and couldn't find a discussion on the matter.
Kate mentioned that:
I think it is a pretty loaded topic, but all the discussions I've seen on uM so far have been respectful, so I'm sure it could be done.
I highly recommend the book "Vaccinations: A Thoughtful Parent's Guide: How to Make Safe, Sensible Decisions about the Risks, Benefits, and Alternatives" by Aviva Jill Romm. We ultimately decided to vaccinate selectively (after one year) and I found this book to be very comprehensive and easy to understand, no matter what you decide.
