Scared to do more vaccinations

My daughter is now 16 months old, and she has not had any vaccinations since she was 9 months old. Shortly after, she developed several food allergies (wheat, egg white, peanut, dairy and oats), and is now possibly allergic to amoxicillin. She also has several other sensitivities like severe eczema and polymorphic light eruption (a reaction to the sun). She got atopic dermatitis from disposable diapers and we switched to cloth. I started researching what is in vaccines to see if there was anything she is allergic to (like some have egg). Frankly, I am terrified that she will have an allergic reaction, or something worse. I am starting to think some of them cause more harm than good. However, my husband would have a fit if I told him that. So would her pediatrician. I am torn between being scared to give them to her and scared not to. Am I just being overly paranoid here?

Re: Scared to do more vaccinations

No, you're not being paranoid. You are being wise, considering your situation, and getting some very strong signals from your gut, or intuition. Just remember, you can always give vaccines later, but once you've given them (and suffered a bad reaction) you can never take them back.

Don't expect your doctor to give you the full story, either. Most have no idea what the ingredients are and simply follow the protocol encouraged by their administrator. Many get bonuses for high percentages of their patients being fully vaccinated so they will not be encouraging you to wait. It's rare to find a doctor who will sit down and go over your concerns, so it is up to you to do what you feel is best for your baby.

Good luck with your decision.

I totally agree. In fact I just read there is mercury in the baby shots. This has been known for sometime but the drug companies were not forced to remove it.
