(SORRY, personal rant)...Hey!!! Governer Gary Herbert of Utah

And QUIT sending my Daughter personal cards and invites to VACCINATE her child/my Grandchild...
She will vaccinate HER child when and HOW she wants....
Yours Truly, Marie
OH, and GARY...Here's an article to get your un-educated self up to speed:

Dr. Sears is a leading authority on alternative vaccine schedules.
Here are some things to consider when facing vaccines:

-If your child is premature, has recurrent ear infections or if you as parents have a history of autoimmune disorders or allergies, these are indications that your child may not respond well to vaccines. Each child is unique and some are born with weaker immune systems. The current vaccine schedule is a one-size-fits-all approach that assumes that all children are born with strong immune systems. This just isn't the case.

-Make sure your child is not or has not been ill recently or is not coming down with something at the time a vaccine is administered.

-Do not vaccinate at a time when your child has been on antibiotics or if they have recently come off antibiotics.

-Spread out the vaccines. Make numerous appointments so that only one vaccine per appointment is given to your child.

-Don't give the hepatitis B vaccine to newborns. Delay it until 2 months old or bypass it altogether. Today there are more reports of adverse reactions from the vaccine than there are reported cases of the disease in children. The acknowledged toxic dose of aluminum for babies is 20 micrograms and the amount found in the hepatitis B vaccine is 250 micrograms!!

-Prime your child's immune system with immune protective nutrients prior to vaccinating. Give 250mg of vitamin C, 2 or 3 echinacea drops and 1/2 tsp cod liver oil for a few days before and after the vaccine.

-Consider checking "titers" (blood immunity levels) for various shots before doing boosters. Some kids don't need some of the booster shots at age 5 because their original infant series may still be working fine. While this is a costly and time-consuming approach, some parents prefer it instead of automatically getting all the boosters.

-Limit large combination shots like the MMR. Ask your doctor to split up the shots into separate components to decrease the chance of a reaction.

-Consider delaying vaccinations until 4 or 5 years of age when your child's brain is more fully developed.

-If you choose not to vaccinate your child at all, know that despite what you might feel or hear, you are not alone. A growing number of parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children. Of the ones that I know personally, their children are nearly full grown and rarely even succumb to the common cold. They are extremely healthy. And know that no school can turn your child away as a result of your decision. Even though they may say that certain vaccines are "required" they can not force you to vaccinate nor can they turn you away.
 Also, Please try and find a "vaccine-friendly" pediatrician who will be open to alternative schedules.
