I think vaccines are a major problem in this culture. Yes, of course, Polio and Measles needed to be stopped, but for heaven's sake, do we REALLY need a Chicken Pox vaccine?
It's the same for dogs - vaccines are not 'harmless', and there is plenty of evidence of the side effects of them.
I will only give the vaccines that Ruby HAS to have - unfortunately TDI forces a number of them. Due to her health problems, I may be able to have my vet waive most of them though.
