6 months... ALREADY?!
We took Landon to get his 6 month shots yesterday. I was raised by a pack of wild wolves so I never got any shots as a kid, not to mention the only one in class not allowed to do the fluoride at school. As a kid, other than being jealous of the kids who did get to "swish", I didn't think twice about it. My father (the chiropractor) opted not to have us immunized. For some reason I do remember getting a booster shot as a child, but only because our doctor's name was Dr. BUNzal, and as kids we thought that was pretty funny. Anyway in my own opinion, I don't think immunizations are necessary. I actually don't know anything about them. My opinion is based on no fact other than I was never sick as a child and can count on 2 fingers the times I've been sick as an adult. Why then do I subject my kid to these shots? For one, my husband does believe in them. And secondly, I'm too passive to try and fight him or the school systems about it. So at two, four, and now six months Landon has been a trooper only crying for a second while being jabbed over and over with sharp needles. As for me, I will probably rot with mumps and polio, but for now I'll take that chance.
