If you're pro-vax or delay/selectively vax

Could you do me a favor? i'm interested in seeing what particular studies you have to support your view.

Topics I am particularly interested include the theory of herd immunity, vaccine efficacy, rate of adverse reactions vs risk of the disease itself, vaccine ingredients and at what dosage they begin to have toxic effects on the body, studies on long-term health effects, etc.

I'm not interested in mom blogs, opinion pieces, etc. and in effort to avoid a war, please don't argue with each other lol! I've done crap tons of research on the anti-vax side and so far I'm pretty firm in not vaxing my son, however I'm interested to see the other side from an unbiased viewpoint.

Thanks!

Have you read Dr. Sears vaccine book? He lists dozens of studies for and against vaccines.

Doesn't the CDC have pretty much all of that info?

I want to see the studies themselves, not what the CDC has to say about them.

Re: If you're pro-vax or delay/selectively vax

I think the Dr. Sears book is wonderful because it seems that both sides of the aisle appeal to it. To me that speaks to it's impartiality. (Personally we do not vax and that book actually was the first thing that led me down that path.)

I know you're not interested in mommy blogs, but the Guggy Daly blog has posts with lots of links to great scientific info. Guggy is anti-vax, but she uses an evidence-based approach.

Re: If you're pro-vax or delay/selectively vax

I've heard wonderful things, from both pro and anti vax'ers about the Dr Sears book, so I'll 3rd (or 4th or 5th, whatever!) that.

Personally, we didn't do any research. We vax'ed DD, except for the varicella at 12 months. We were hoping she would contract it naturally, but that doesn't look to be likely so we will get her that vaccine in the next couple years - at which point the risks of the virus really start to get... well, riskier.
So, we vax'ed DS1 as well... and he reacted to his first set of needles. We stopped completely with him and held off anything more until after he was 2 years old. He reacted again to the same set of needles (ironically he reacted not at all to the MMR... that, ya know, every baby reacts to!). We've stopped with his needles.
And the other boys just got what they got - it's different for each of them, for different reasons.

At this point, because of what I found out with DS1 when researching reactions and delaying, I'm debating delaying any vax'es with Hiccup until after 2 years of age - at that point, less doses are required of some vaccines.
I kinda thought about that with DS3, but didn't follow through... not really sure why. He's only vaxed to 12 months anyways though because of other, non-related issues.
