This is something that has been weighing on my mind for years (I can say that now because Little Olive is two). Ever since Little Huck was born, I'm going crazy wondering if I'm making the right call to not vaccinate against a couple diseases.
I can defend my position when it comes to Polio, Chicken Pox, Hep B, Measles, etc. But you never hear non-vaxers talking about why you shouldn't get Hib and Pc. In my old post about vaccines (read here), I said the breastfeeding/no daycare angle really lowers your chances of catching the illnesses. And yes, the ingredients of those vaccines are disgusting. But what if?? Do the cons outweigh the pros? I'm looking for facts. I'm looking for good, sound information that will help me make the best decision regarding these two vaccines. My doctor, who I respect a TON because she respects my position, recommends those two (Hib and Pc). Meningitis is very serious, and by the time you know it's meningitis, isn't it almost too late?
This is what I'm reading, and it really scares me.
I'm asking if anyone has resources, sound and valid information regarding the Pc and Hib vaccines, please send them along. I'm not interested in fear-mongering articles from either side.
