Vaccinations My Son Has Had

When we think of the Hib, DTap and IPV vaccines my son has had so far, we cringe at the thought of letting it ever happen. With all the past and recent talk about the link between vaccinations and autism, as well as exposing infants to so many toxins, I wonder with great concern why I let my pediatrician talk me into it? Why did we fear exposure to pertussis prevalent in the area? Why did we fear polio from associations with third world countries? Why didn't we think about it more thoroughly? Or I thought we did? I guess at the end of the day, as parents, we always have to make the best decisions we can make with the information we have at the given time.

For our friends and family who are now thinking about vaccinating their babies, here is some useful information:
