|Do I look like I have Swine Flu, Asshole!?
Jake went for his one year check-up today. Thankfully everything looks great. The Doctor said according to some chart, Jake should grow to be around 5’11” and thin. That’s funny. According to most charts, I should weigh 135 pounds!
After the basic exam banter, the conversation turned to a topic my wife and I generally avoid “like the plague”. That topic is Jake’s vaccination schedule. We both agree in an EXTREMELY minimalistic approach to immunizations. It’s not that we want our child to get sick. Although, no one can give us a satisfactory explanation on why we need to pump Jake full of chemicals to help prevent Swine Flu and Hepatitis! In his first few days here on Earth, the hospital’s immunization schedule called for nearly a DOZEN different shots. I’m sorry, but we didn’t see Jake banging any needle abusing Hepatitis patients in his near future, so we declined.
I consider my wife and I to be adamant on educating ourselves thoroughly when it comes to our son. We do the research, talk to the Doctor, and talk to parents just like you. Based on that consensus, we come to a conclusion. When it comes to vaccinations, an overwhelming majority of the information we find is not good. We have heard story after story from parents who said that they noticed significant changes in their children after vaccination shots. My heart aches to say, in some cases, their children passed away soon after a round of shots. Not to mention, all the research that shows the metals found in many of the shots contributing to autism, etc. There is an eye-opening DVD called Shoot ‘Em Up. The Truth About Vaccines.
I believe that even the biggest skeptics would have a hard time debating some of the points in this video.
I know there are two schools of thought. One says that if we don’t vaccinate our kids, won’t those diseases re-emerge? The other says, those diseases are long gone, why vaccinate? The battle continues…
This is a heated topic to say the least. Who’s right? Maybe we both are. I just want your opinion. Don’t egg my house:)
