It's not like my kids aren't going to know they haven't been vaccinated. I'll raise them the way I see best, just as any other parent, but when they are adults they can make their own decisions for themselves. If *they* feel that it is too big of a risk to not be vaccinated and it fits in with their set of beliefs, then they can choose to get the vaccines any time in their adult life.
