Re: Vaccine Question?

I've heard from many sources that people in the medical profession are doing just that; vaccinating right before their child needs to enter a school which requires vaccinations and avoiding them during the developmental years, just as a precaution.

Hindsight always gives one clearer vision. As a young parent you tend to buy into all the medical mumbo jumbo that is thrown your way about things being perfectly safe and necessary. One can recover from whooping cough but once neurological damage is done there is no recovery.

I can't add one thing to this statement. I must edit. I do not agree with the last statement from antiquemother2. My grandson is improving. Complete recovery? He is still in the process. There can be recovery. My opinion, of course.
