42. I'm not against vaccines.
I'm for safe vaccines and prudent vaccine schedules. My children are all fully vaccinated, except for the one vaccine that gave my son seizures and killed my sister. After my son had the seizures and another cousin developed a temp over 105, all the cousins' pediatricians decided to stop that vaccine -- the old DTP vaccine that was eventually removed from the market and replaced by a safer vaccine.

And recently, I encouraged all three of my young adults to get their flu vaccines. It's ridiculous to say that I'm against vaccines.

Your article, about the number of vaccines in children by the age of 5, had nothing to do with my point, which is how many vaccines are given to BABIES under the age of 2. As I said in another post in this thread, In Britain there are 17 recommended vaccine doses for children under 2; in the U.S., there are 26. I see no reason why U.S. babies need 50% more vaccine doses than British babies. Maybe you can enlighten me.
