My oldest daughter had reactions to the DPT (the whole cell vaccine) and also had a reaction which caused cerebellar ataxia (a brain disorder) from the MMR. My other children are selectively vaccinated. We do polio (injected, not oral, the killed virus) Tetanus and Diphtheria, and Haemophilis Influenza A (HiB.) That's it. Nothing that causes neurological issues, nothing that is totally unnecessary (like the Hepatitis B vaccine. Babies and children don't have sex or shoot up drugs, so they don't get Hep B. If they get it from their moms' they need a different vaccine. No Guardacil, as I feel it is dangerous and not efficacious enough. No MMR, as it caused brain damage in my oldest child and made my second child scream for a full day, then she slept like the dead for 12 straight hours (I had to feed her while she was asleep. Ever try to shoot breastmilk into a sleeping baby's mouth? It is not easy.) and left a lump that lasted for a year.
No Chicken Pox vaccine. In otherwise healthy children, the Chicken Pox is NOT a big issue. My two older ones got the Chicken Pox when they were little and never need a booster. The CP vaccine needs a booster every 5-10 years and we're going to see an increase in adults who get the Pox with not nice results. It's a "I don't wanna stay home with a mildly sick kid for 2-4 weeks" vaccine. I stayed in the house for nearly two months, as my oldest child and myself got it first and 14 days later my middle one got it. It wasn't a big deal for the kids, they itched for a few days, I gave them oatmeal baths and they were fine. I got it in my early 20s, though, and ended up with bleeding pox in my intestines and ended up in the ER before I knew what it was. I also have some scars. My kids do not. If people would just let their little darlings GET the real Chicken Pox as children, we'd all be a lot better off. (Of course, there are exceptions, kids with serious immune system diseases probably might want to get vaccinated, as per their doctor's orders, but they will need to keep up the boosters regularly.)
NO PERTUSSIS. My two older kids and I were all given the whole cell Pertussis. My youngest did not. My oldest got her boosters, my middle one didn't. My entire family got Pertussis. The vaccine made absolutely NO difference in severity, or recovery.
Two of my kids and myself got pneumonia from the Pertussis illness, and my middle one (who only had the first shot and no boosters) didn't. There was NO difference in the disease between who got the vaccine, who didn't get the vaccine and who had boosters and who didn't.
My middle one does get a Flu Shot, as she does get Influenza every year. She's our "Gateway patient" and usually is the one who brings Influenza into the home. She also has Reactive Airway (almost asthma) and this vaccine works well for her and she doesn't get sick from it. I have a very mild egg while reaction, so I can't get the Influenza Vaccine, because of that reaction via my doctor.
I think every parent needs to do their own research, look at their own family history (any history of convulsive disorders, autism spectrum conditions, migraine, allergies, a family history of MS or other neurological issues need to really do their homework and look at ALL warnings on the labels of the vaccines.)
Every family and every child will have different needs.
