The good sergeant (that'd be me) is going to be a dad anytime between tomorrow and a month from now. As such I've been spending a lot of time researching whether or not to vaccinate my kid. Fortunately, living in one of the last free states I'm not compelled by law to vaccinate my kids at all. In doing my research I'm very much concerned about the safety and necessity of some of these vaccinations. As it stands now we've decided that:
Yes= tetanus, rubella (if we have a daughter)
No= hepB, diptheria, polio, rotavirus, mumps, varicella, hepA
Maybe= pertusis, PCV, Hib, measels
What are some of your experiences in vaccinating your kids?
Also, in the event the little crumb cruncher turns out to be a boy I'm not planning on getting him cut. The health reasons don't seem to be there and I figure if he wants it bad enough he can do it at 18. Nobody ever asked me.
In any case I'm not calling anyone's parenting into question. I just know that I'm about to get a crash course on being a dad and want to make sure I get it right.
