I choose to vaccinate to protect our family. Members of my family have been affected by Vaccine preventable diseases. My 96 year old mother can no longer walk on her own because she has post polio syndrome after having survived polio at age 3. My sister has vision problem related to measles and my beloved grandmother for whom I am named died from cervical cancer. My own children and grand children are all fully immunized. We choose to be healthy and not risk a vaccine preventable disease.
