To vacinate or not!

That is the question. I am trying to work on how I feel about this topic. I know what Eric wants. He believes in vaccinations.

I am just not sure how to get unbiased information on this topic. I am starting to believe it doesnt exist. Everyone has an agenda. And its frustrating to see people call others bad parents for following a belief of one way or the other.

Here is my current "facts" that I believe including reservations I have on each comment:
1. I think vaccines are good for some reasons. Is the chicken pox vaccine necessary? I got the disease as a child and am none the worse for it. Is the flu vaccine necessary?
2. I dont want my child to have more than 1-2 shots in any visit. I know various sources say its perfectly healthy to have all the shots they list. But what happens if my child has an allergic reaction to one of the shots, how would I know which shot was the problem?

Its hard to figure out whats the right choice.

  1. Good grief. Beyond the basics, like MMR & polio (is that one?) what else is she supposed to have? I have an opinion - surprise, surprise - let me know if you want it.
