I was just wondering how you (vegans) handle it when your baby goes in for their vaccines and know some are made of monkey cells, and chick embryo's?
Some in the UK are made with rabbit kidney...
just curious as to how you handle this...

I don't have kids, so I hadn't thought about it, actually. If there's an alternative, I would be thrilled to pay for it. I admit, it hurts my brain a bit to think about it right now. If I ever do decide to have kids, I'll let you know! :)

cute av, btw, ceejay

aww thanks

I have four and never knew there were chick embryos in them. (I am not vegan, just thought it was weird)
never cared to ask what they are putting in my kids...what kind of mom am I?? LOL

Beside being Vegan, a lot of kids have allergies to eggs, so it's quite shocking that they don't tell you ahead of time what the vax contains.

We are not Vegan (I'm veggie) but we delay vax for allergy reasons.

well, you probably just assumed it was safe and the doctor knew what he was doing. I do that a lot, and then only think to ask when I get home!

I know of a family that does not vaccinate their child. I don't know if I can recommend that though. Sometimes you just have to do what's right.
