Since our children have delicate immune systems and other possible physical problems, the issue of vaccines is huge! Jett got one shot a visit for a total of two a month during his first five months of life. He hasn't had any more vaccines since. My present pediatrician agrees 100% to give no more vaccines even though she recommends them for the majority of her patients. His neurodevelopmentalist seems to think that Jett does show some symptoms of vaccine damage (sensitivity to light, visual stimming, inward turning of one eye). I am looking into ways to treat. If I could go back in time, I would not have given him any shots.
To understand more, I recommend these books, websites and articles:

About vaccinations, please read the relevant chapter in Gut & Psychology Syndrome . Babies in GAPS families must not be vaccinated until they have developed strong immune systems and good physical and communication skills: this means no vaccines until the child is 4-5 years of age. Even then, if you have to vaccinate, make sure that your child is absolutely healthy and well at the time of the vaccination. Ask to see the ingredients list of the vaccine and demand that they are explained to you. Try to avoid combined vaccines, look for single alternatives.
