f my mum didnt give me the jab when i was younger i would be worried if i was pregnant with the outbreak.i would think she was selfish,thoughtless.if my baby (my mums grandchild) was stillborn,brain damaged,no hearing caused by german measles i would think my mum could have prevented this by giving me the mmr = i wonder how my mum would feel?
I had my child vaccinated i will do anything to safegaurd my child and other children families.its not just the child who has not had her jabs at risk.so i think it is very selfish and thoughtless of the parent who refuses.I want to help my community i give to charity,i have an organ donation card
protected my child against nasty diseases and also people with cancer,low immune systems from a serious ilness,newborn babies to 12 months so it upsets me others are so selfish.if only communities could help each other and think of others to.
i hope my organs and money i give to help others goes to someone who would do anything to help others not selfish putting risks to themselfs and others.-------but i cant 2 wrongs dont make a right do they? i believe in life we should treat others how we should like to be treated our selfs.take a step back and think hard would i like that ? how would i feel if someone treated me like that?

I am in favour of vaccinations but MMR will not necessarily protect your unborn child in pregnancy. My mother was fully vaccinated but was exposed to German Measles in her first trimester; my sister is profoundly deaf as a result. The body will mount an immune response, whether vaccinated or not, and this may affect a foetus.

YANBU to think parents should consider the effects of non vaccination on their children, but it is never too later to be vaccinated. As a young adult you can see your doctor and arrange to get it done.

you asked this exact question on Saturday

and here on Sunday

Now, I'm not accusing you of trolling, nor am I stalking, I'm pointing out that you seem to be having trouble accepting that others just MAY have a differing POV; you seem to be thinking that constantly starting threads on this one single topic will eventually get you the responses you want.

Or something.

My DS didn't have the MMR jab when he was a toddler, as I had reasons to be concerned about it. However, he has just had the MMR jab, as I gave him all the facts and at 16 he was able to make his own decision. Others would be able to do the same. SO a baby born with disabilities from a disease caused by the mother not being vaccinated is not the fault of the Grandparents - if the mother was old enough to be a mother, then she was old enough to choose to be vaccinated before getting pregnant.

OP, do you really need to start 3 threads about this?

racheael76 Mon 22-Apr-13 19:40:03

hi 5318008 ,soupdragon ,sorry if i have upset you.i just want to read and see different points of view to try to understand why people are not vaccinating.if i had a wish i would wish all nasty diseases could be history/extict so people wouldnt have to suffer or live in fear.x

You could read the 14 billion other measles MMR threads.

CloudsAndTrees Mon 22-Apr-13 19:46:37

Didn't you already say pretty much exactly the same thing on another thread you started? confused

There are already threads you can read for views.

YABU to suggest you would blame your mother if your daughter were affected because you were exposed to german measels as and adult. You can choose to get MMR when you're an adult. If you think it's important to be vaccinated, as an adult, you can rectify that. This is in contrast to someone who thinks the MMR is a mistake but was subject to it as a child - they can't take it back.

As a parent you make the best decisions you can with the information you have available. Some of those decisions are going to be wrong. My choice is to vaccinate my children because I trust our current knowledge on vaccinations and the immune system is sufficient that we haven't missed side affects and my children do not exhibit any contraindicators. I hope >95% of other children are in the same position, but I'm not going to "blame the mother" if they made the best decision they could. Parenting is hard enough.

you have also posted the same thing on other MMR threads rather than actually join in the discussion

what do you want to achieve OP?

AnAirOfHope Mon 22-Apr-13 20:00:29

The MMR jab is the only vaccine that uses egg to grown it in. My dd is allergic to egg so gp, nurse refused to give it to her incase it killered her. I had to wait till she was 16 months to go to hospital and inject something into her that may have killed her - because once its in you cant take it out.

Luckly she was fine and is now jabed but we have to go thru it all again when she is three.

I understand why some mums dont want to risk the effects of an allergic reaction to the jab and to not get their children jabed. Its the hardest call i have had to make as a mum so far.

Not everyone can have the MMR. You should not judge untill you know the facts.

Egg allergy is common in babies and most grow out of it but some dont.

racheael76 Mon 22-Apr-13 20:04:37

what would like to achieve -to make people aware the dangers of measles /german measles different views from different people .everyone to help make these nasty nasty diseases extict/history so our future generations dont have to suffer whether thats one person or lots.x

racheael76 Mon 22-Apr-13 20:10:37

i understand that anairofhope.i agree if a doctor advisers not to give injections for medical reasons that is acceptable and the right thing to do .i think all other children should be given injections before being allowed to start school.

EmmelineGoulden Mon 22-Apr-13 20:18:39

If that's your goal racheael, might I respectfully sggest this is a very poor way of going about it. You will entrench attitudes of those who disagree with your perspective and annoy those who agree.

AtYourCervix Mon 22-Apr-13 20:21:06

Yes. You really will just make people want to kick kittens and swear at you with the 'nasty diseases' and 'blame your mother' shite.

In fact I strongly suspect you are out to goad and stir so please stop.

CoteDAzur Mon 22-Apr-13 20:22:51

How many MMR threads to you intend to start, OP? hmm

foreverondiet Mon 22-Apr-13 20:26:54

But effects of vaccination can wear off - should have immunity checked before ttc even if vaccinated.

gordyslovesheep Mon 22-Apr-13 20:42:42

Racheael76 you might be better able to do all that by getting off the interweb and doing something practical

thanks for highlighting it though - repeatedly, a lot, because I had no idea ;)
