I have a question - why do people always say they wouldn't want DC to play with unvaccinated kids?

My DC has gotten shots but, I have a friend whose DC has not gotten any (same age) and I always hear this comment but, I don't understand it - I mean shouldn't she be the one that is worried? If he has all his shots why should it matter if she gets one of these diseases because of not being vaccinated if he is?

I know I must be missing something but I am always Chat Icon

Yeah I don't get it either but whatever. My DD is vaccinated but was really delayed compared to her friends. None of my friends cared.
The only time I could see caring is having an unvaccinated child around a newborn. Chat Icon

Re: I have a question - why do people always say they wouldn't want DC to play with unvaccinated kids?

Well I guess it's because even if your child is vaccinated, there is still a small risk they can contract the disease they were vaccinated for. Your unvaccinated kid has a 100% chance of catching it, thus passing it along to the already vaccinated kid and him/her possibly getting the disease. Yes the risk is small, but it's still a risk.

If everyone vaccinated, there would be nothing to worry about because there would be no diseases passed around.

I believe in spacing but I vaccinate.

but there is still the small amount of people not immune. I know three,..me being one of them...
for soome reason no matter how many times Ii get a MMR it does not take..weird huh?Chat Icon

Re: I have a question - why do people always say they wouldn't want DC to play with unvaccinated kids?

I was vaccinated for Chicken pox..I had it TWICE

I had Pertussis as a child...Bad vaccine batch

And Adults are suppossed to have 2 MMR boosters. I can tell everyone I know of maybe 2-3 people who have actually gotten that done.

Diseases cannot be eradicated ever.

But I think vaccinating helps as much as we "can".

I agree - I was in Vermont, where lots of kids weren't vaccinated (lots of kids with autism, that is Chat Icon ) and they went to schools with vaccinated kids and everyone came home at the end of the day healthy....

Re: I have a question - why do people always say they wouldn't want DC to play with unvaccinated kids?

not only I...but two others Ii know of their body rejects the MMR,
I think we need to take that into consideration.
Soome people are carriers and some are not!
ex: Im sure the ped my bro got whopping cough from was vaccinated,,hes not like that..
but people assume he was not.
