“Did you vaccinate your babies with the MMR vaccine to prevent measles, mumps and rubella?(If not, WHY NOT?¬† Seriously, why NOT?) Every now and then we hear of cases of measles amongst the kids in my child’s school who were not vaccinated. Why wouldnt a mother vaccinate her child and why is the school so careless to admit these kids without proper immunization records.

Did you know measles can cause deafness, among other things?” – Dorathy

Here are a few responses from some mums:

“Nope. My children are unable to receive vaccines because of severe reactions to them. Not everybody fits into your perfect, ones size fits all box of medicine.” -Funsho

“Yes my kids are fully vaccinated” -Hadiza

“Yes, my children are fully vaccinated, and will be kept up on their boosters.My husband and I also keep up with the booster shots.” -Tolu
