  1. This is so critical. I feel like so many parents are opposed to vaccines because they are scared of autism. And there really is no proven link between vaccines and autism. Vaccines save lives and I want to keep my kid safe.

    Knowing how dangerous the diseases can be, it seems like people should be happy to do the necessary vaccinations. You’re protecting your child, as well as shielding everyone else’s child from disease. Thanks for sharing this!

      Thank you for reading Chrystal. I think mostly people are afraid when there is so much mis-information out there. 

  3. Good reminder as we swiftly approach Flu Shot Season, and some offices run out of them quickly so it's good to book your appointment early!

      Yes, it’s nice to have it done early and have to search for them in the middle of the season. Thanks for reading Tracy!

    Immunizations are so important, and I'm glad the CDC has launched this campaign. Thanks for helping to spread the word.

  5. I've been told about the link between autism and vaccines and have been intimidated by that information a while back. We did, however, just go a head and vaccinate our little guy. It's a tough decision when you don't know the truth.

      Thanks for reading, Jeff. It is a tough decision. There is a lot of different information and we have access to all of it. At the end of the day, I think parents want to just do what’s best for their children. 

  6. Good reminder, the flu season is around the corner and is better to prevent.

  7. Depending on my kids' reaction I delay the shots but try very hard to stay within the guidelines.

  8. As in everything,if it's important to you- especially if it affects you and your family's health do some background checking.  Vaccines are very important for prevention, but as you mentioned, they may have ingredients that can cause allergic reactions. Great reminder- gracias y BB2U.

    Thanks for the info!

  10. I think immunizations are important, the flu shot is unneccesary though 🙂
