wondering

Previous post deleted. It was long and disorganized. My thoughts organized:

I'm wondering why we vaccinate and if it has anything to do with the increase of women working outside the home.

According to this, the amount of vaccines did increase dramatically during the 50's, 60's and 70's. This was the time when many women started to work outside the home. I wonder if there is a correlation.

I need to finish organizing my thoughts. More tomorrow.

  1. Interesting thought. I know that if my kids went to daycare they would be getting vaccinated. I can't wait to here the rest.

  2. I have often thought the same thing. In fact, I always tell people who ask about vaccinations that if I either didn't/couldn't breastfeed my babies and/or put them in public child care, I would vaccinate them. No doubt about it.
