Hi Ladies,

I know this is a sensitive topic and I'm not attacking anyone in here but I am entitled to also give my opinion on this.

I am pro vaccine, I read books by Dr. Paul Offit. I visit websites like www.voicesforvaccines.org

I am absolutely pro vaccine. I used to be anti vax untill I started doing proper research on this and reading books by authors like Dr. Paul Offit et al. (who is a Paediatrician with a specialisation in infectious diseases, not a GP, not a former Playboy model but someone with proper credentials (referring to the old "I wouldn't take my broken car to a doctor" logic))


I just feel about this that I can't believe that someone would willingly put my little girl in danger of contracting a disease for which she's still to little to be immunized against and compromise our herd immunity because of quack science. I know people who cannot be vaccinated due to having received transplants and I know that vaccinating my baby also helps them not to contract a horrible disease that our parents and grandparents might have suffered under.

Well, there's my 2 cents worth on this one.

PS: if you want to read up on this, start with "Autism's False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine, and the Search for a Cure"

This will always be a sensitive topic unfortunately but I would suggest to join both groups to hear both sides of the story IF that is even possible because one is very pro & the other one very anti.

Here is the pro vaccine one :

and the anti-vac one :

I have not vaccinated my 3rd Child completely but second that you go to the Vaccine Awareness Facebook page. I think you will get some valuable information on there.

Hi Marina

Check out the VASA facebook page (Vaccine Awareness SA). There are lots of mommies on there that have never vaccinated.
