There is so much controversy about vaccinations and how they cause autism! There has been research done on this matter. There is not a single answer to weather or not vaccinations are the actual cause. In my opinion I believe the risk of not vaccinating my children out weigh the other possible risk of developing autism. I spread there vaccinations out. So there not getting them all in one visit.Remember your the parent and if your pediatrician gives you a hard time about it, it’s time to switch Pediatricians.
***Warning I am not a medical professional, this is my opinion only!***
There is one vaccination I won’t allow my children to receive and it is the influenza vaccination. My reasons for this are: I don’t receive it myself,due to the fact I am allergic to eggs and the influenza vaccination has traces of egg. I have never gotten the influenza vaccination due to this reason only. I have watched my identical twin sister become very ill after the vaccination. My younger sister had her 3 year old vaccinated and she became very ill.My sister told me she felt forced to vaccinate for influenza. I told her she has the last say! From then on my niece does not receive the influenza vaccination.
Now by no means am I saying not to get the influenza vaccination. It still helps many people. My point is always keep an eye out for different things that could be a warning sign that your body or your child’s body may not be able to handle and make sure you let the doctor know right away.
