Momversation: Concerned about vaccinations?


Vaccinations: a topic of contention among many. But not us. Heather (Dooce) asks: what's up with folks who don't get their kids vaccinated? Alice (Finslippy) and I respond.

In general, you're a pretty evidence-based decision-making group, and so I'll wager that most of you support vaccination. Am I right? Or am I oversimplifying?

If you'd like to get a read on how Momversation viewers feel, take the vaccination poll.
