Born in 1960 I have never been vaccinated, my kids have not been vaccinated, and I will not be using vaccines when I get out on land with my animals. So this thread is something I feel passionate about *grin* and passionate that others should follow their conscious, and do what they feel is right for their families and animals.
I hope we don't get off of the topic and start up the old debate of pros and cons of vaccines. But this topic of how can one limit or avoid vaccines for their animals is good.

So my wife and I are expecting our first child and we have come to the conclusion that we do not want to get him vaccinated for sure. <snip>My questions for all of you are:
1. Have you had unvaccinated children and what were your challenges and successes
2. Do you have suggestions on overcoming those challenges
3. Overall how healthy have your unvaccinated children been compared to those who were vaccinated.

(Chicken pox sidebar: it's my understanding that contracting the virus imparts lifelong immunity, while the vaccine wears off for many once they reach adulthood. I've heard that getting chicken pox as an adult--maybe even a teen--is when it's dangerous because it causes sterility.)

The vaccines haven't warn off of any children yet, but people are on the look out for it.
