A User-Friendly Vaccine Schedule

Since 2003, I have been researching the subject of vaccines and their affect on health. My oldest child, Celeste, has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis which was diagnosed at age 3. Jamie, my second child, had allergy-induced asthma for years and it made for many sleepless nights. Dan, my third child, experienced a drastic personality change after receiving the MMR vaccine. (Needless to say, we didn't get the booster at age 5!) I recently came across an article that I saved regarding a different vaccine schedule. It is very clear reading and puts forth a different vaccine schedule than the CDC or your state might. I want everyone to be aware that most states have exemptions for vaccines due to medical, religious, and philosophical beliefs on the part of the parents. Think about it, does the government have the right to tell us what to put into our children's bodies? If your pediatrician is not friendly to a different vaccine schedule, or perhaps, no vaccines at all, then I suggest you find another pediatrician. My two youngest children are not vaccinated at all and have been the healthiest children thus far. Arm yourself. Don't just do what the government or the doctors say is best. Be informed.

Here is the article: A User-Friendly Vaccination Schedule.

I have recently received information regarding the HPV vaccine (Don't give this one to your girls ever!) and meningitis vaccine. I will try to get that info up. I have the HPV info in email format and am trying to figure out the best way to post it as it is long.

I found your site via a link off of Amy's Humble Musings. Fascinating article! Thanks for sharing. This is a topic that I have wanted to investigate for some time as I have 3 small children. Every time that any of my children have received immunizations, (especially when they are itty-bitty- 2, 4, 6 months old)I see side effects that disturb me. I have often wondered if all of this vaccination is really necessary. It seems that a new vaccine is added every time I take one of my kids for their well checkups. Again, thanks for sharing!
