Over on the Prayer of Hannah's blog they are discussing if vaccinations are really safe for our children. Can they cause autism? The information out there all seems to contradict each other if you ask me. All I know is that I felt uneasy when Jackson was nine months old and the doctors wanted to give Jackson four shots (which contain small amounts of viruses, etc) all at one time. Can a nine month old baby really handle that many shots at one time? Jackson ran a high fever after these shots and acted like he was very sick for a day. When we were growing up they had half of the amount of vaccinations and I do not think they would dream of giving a baby four shots at one time.
Do you allow your pediatrician to give your baby up to four or five shots at a time? Our new pediatrician, "Palmetto Pediatrics," has only given Jackson two vaccinations at a time in the short time we have been going to them. Have y'all educated yourselves about vaccinations and read any good books on the topic such as The Vaccine Book? Also, why do all we hear about is boys getting autism from these shots?
I would love to hear from you...I really feel uneducated on this topic!
