I am so glad I found your website. With the amount of misinformation about vaccines on the Internet, it’s hard to find a reliable source for up-to-date info. So first, I want to thank you for educating Indiana about the importance of getting vaccinated.
When I had my first child in 2009, I was completely oblivious to the vaccine debate. I had no idea there was even a choice on the matter. When I took my son to receive his first round of shots at the pediatrician’s office, I was asked if I wanted him to receive all of his vaccinations at the visit. Then I had to give oral “permission.” I had an “Are you kidding me?” moment. Not everyone gets their children vaccinated? Why in the world not? Call it “living under a rock”, but I had no idea.
I then began researching the topic. As a new parent, I started wondering if there really could be something to this. Was I doing what’s right for my child?
Long story short, the answer I came up with was YES YES YES. I firmly believe getting my children (and myself) vaccinated is not only safe, but it is one of the most loving gifts I can give them. I can’t protect my children from everything, but I know vaccinating them is something I CAN do.
I will continue spreading the word about vaccines, not spreading illness!
Thanks again. You guys rock!
