Should I Immunize?

Author: Acgrace123 05.02.2013 · Posted in Holistic Health

I don’t know about you, but this question has been on my mind for quite some time now. Although my youngest is over a year, he is definitely not up to date with his immunizations! With all the rumors flying around about autism and the danger of immunizations, it’s hard to know what to choose. Do I wait or should I go ahead? Hopefully what I have learned on my journey will help you make your own decision.

When I first started to question immunizations, I approached my pediatrician as well as my general doctor. I also turned to a family member who is a Physician’s Assistant. Their answers were all the same; “If your child was ever to contract this disease, you would hate yourself for not doing your part to prevent it. These diseases are serious. They can and do kill.” While I appreciated their honesty, I had to ask myself “Well, what if my child gets autism? Will I hate myself just as much for not trying to prevent that?”

I’ve discovered there are no definite answers and believe me, I’ve searched both sides thoroughly. The thing I’ve decided to do with my little one is take it slow. I believe that most vaccinations are a good thing. I don’t believe that they should be given to our children so young and at such a quick pace. Why not start with the vaccination process when our kids hit 18 months or so? Then they have had time for their little bodies to develop and become strong enough to handle them. Between 18 months and the age of 4-5, I will be getting my child fully vaccinated….slowly. Do I know if this is the best option? No, but it is what I feel the best about.

For each of us, it is our responsibility to do the homework and be educated when it comes to vaccinations. Then with a little bit of help from friends, family and ultimately our own inspiration…make the choice YOU feel best about.

If and when you do decide to vaccinate, you may not be able to afford it. There are organizations out there that are willing to provide free or low-cost vaccinations. Look into your local “Vaccines for Children Program.” However, health insurance is the best way to go when it comes to our kids. To find a good coverage program for your child, go to www.healthplanone.com. Most health insurance plans will cover the full cost of immunizations.
