I wasn't sure were to post this so am putting it here. I have read that it is possible that there will be mandatory vaccinations for the H1N1 flu. I know this is a controversial issue but this board seems to be open to discussions of all kinds. I am asking because I recently filled out the government paperwork neccessary in order for my children to skip there vacs this year and still go to school. Of course, this H1N1 flu was not on it. My three year old daughter got a flu mist last season and got very sick that day and remained very ill for several months. After two doctors appt and finally insisting on blood test we found that she had mono. She also got fifths disease and immediatley developed and intolerance to dairy. I do not think it is safe for her to have another flu vaccination. I think that it is very possible that I have passed my immune dysfunction on to her and feel that the vaccination could be harmful to both of us, not to mention my son with all kinds of issues. We are all taking supplements to strengthen our immune systems and I feel this is the safest thing for my family. It is said that vaccinations are safe for people with immune deficiencies and even strongly recommended for the weakest of our population. My thought is that we should vaccinate the strong in order to protect the weak. Rather than sacrificing the weak to protect the population as a whole. I also think we need more research so that we can develop tests that will find immune deficiencies or mitochondrial dysfunction in our children rather than having a "one size fits all" mentality. What do you think? Do you think, considering your health issues, it would be safer to get the vaccine or go without it?
