Before you choose a vaccine, ask yourself:

Before you choose a vaccine, ask yourself:

 

1. What is the true chance that my child will contract the disease for which the vaccine is intended?

3. Does my child have a personal or family history of:  

     -vaccine reactions

     -convulsions or neurological disorders

     -severe allergies

     -immune system disorders

4. Is my child sick right now?

5. Do I know if my child is at high risk of reacting to the vaccine that is to be administered?

6. Do I have full information on the vaccine side effects?

7. Do I know how to identify a vaccine reaction?

8. Do I know how to report a vaccine reaction?

9. Do I know the vaccine manufacturer’s name and lot number?
