Q: aren’t you afraid your kid will get a vax preventable disease?

A: the only really scary one (for me) was the chance of getting whooping cough as an infant. However, the shot doesn’t keep people from giving you WC, it just makes people asymptomatic carriers. 1/
Surrounding an infant with people vaxxed for pertussis is more dangerous, because they won’t get a cough and won’t know to stay away from your infant.
None of the other vax preventable diseases are very scary to me. I had to do a lot of research to get to this point. /2
My kid was exposed to chicken pox before the age of 1 and didn’t get it.
Measles is not deadly in the US for those without underlying conditions.
Rotavirus didn’t almost ever kill kids in the US even before the vax.
I like to look at the numbers. I don’t base my health decisions on the idea that 20 kids a year died from something in the US prior to the vax.

Our kids now die from cancer and other chronic diseases. It is my job to protect my kid.

This is why we don’t vax.
