We still have one more month of summer vacation here, and though there’s still lots of time for summer fun, it’s time to start thinking about preparing for the school year. For many that means making sure your child’s vaccine records are up to date.
Vaccinations are a hot topic; no doubt about that. And while we choose not to vaccinate our children, I will not try to convince you to take the same route as we have. I only urge you, implore you, to educate yourself, as a parent, on the subject. If you choose to vaccinate your children, fine. But PLEASE do so AFTER finding out the possible side effects or downside of doing so. And PLEASE do it by choice. DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE BULLIED INTO VACCINATING YOUR CHILD!
I posted this last September. It’s that time of year again, and a timely topic for a re-post.
Have you ever been told that your children will not be allowed to attend school without being up to date on their vaccinations? If not, where have you been? That scare tactic has been used for so many years, it’s amazing that it’s survived for one simple fact: IT’S NOT TRUE.
Megan at SortaCrunchy posted this a couple of days ago last year, and the information is exactly what I’d like to share with you, so please click here to read her post: http://bit.ly/2lSNl
And Stephanie at Adventures In Babywearing wrote this post on the topic of vaccine exemptions. You can read about her experiences with vaccines and how they affected her family.
Then come on back here to leave your comments; this can be an interesting discussion as long as we are respectful to each other.
