To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate It Is Up To You

 

I for one personally am wary of all vaccinations. Reason being one can never be sure what you are being injected with. Thats just me and I am entitled to that opinion. I recently had a shingles vaccination after being shown by the doctor a graphic picture of s shingles infection on the face and body. No ill affects. A friend of mine had the same injection. Not  a good result. He ended up with inflammation that basically froze his shoulder and eventually his muscles  atrophied. He is in his late 60’s and will probably never regain the same use of that arm and shoulder. If I had known this before I had the vaccination I doubt if I would have taken the risk. Thats just me though. Like him I am very physical in my lifestyle so, no I would definitely not have had the vaccination. What is happening to him is scary to me.

You need to listen to what Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) has to say especially if you are deciding wether or not to vaccinate your children. It may help in your decision.
