Vaccines


The topic of vaccines has come up several times over the last week or so with some of my friends and I'd LOVE to see what all of you have to say and where you get your information.

As far as I can tell there are 2 choices:

You can allow your children to get their vaccines and there is the chance that there could be some very serious side effects (like autism), although there is actually no solid proof that anything is linked to vaccines.  One point being that there is autism in countries where vaccines aren't even available.

OR

You can choose to forgo vaccines and there is the still a possibility of something just as awful happening and your child could get the disease that the vaccine is supposed to prevent as well as your child being a carrier and passing the disease on to other children.

There are possible consequences for both choices.

So, what are you supposed to do as a mother searching for solid answers?  Where can you go to get real un-jaded information?  What have you decided is best for your children and why?
