Former Laguna Beach and Hills star Kristin Cavallari recently said in an interview that she and her husband have decided not to vaccinate their 18-month-old son Camden, and have no plans to vaccinate the next baby on the way.
Many people worry about the link between children’s vaccinations and developments of certain types of diseases, like Autism. Cavallari said that she has read, “too many books,” and learned too many, “scary statistics” to take a chance.
“It’s our personal choice, you know, and if you’re really concerned about your kid, then get them vaccinated and it shouldn’t be a problem,” she said. She is not the only celebrity who has openly talked about this sort of thing. Jenny Garth has an autistic son and believes the same about vaccinations.
It is a widely debated topic and is very complex. It is not certain and it has not been confirmed by scientific data that there is any direct link between vaccination and Autism but there are theories that exist, that are enough for people like Cavallari, not to choose to vaccinate their children.
What do you think? Will you vaccinate or have you vaccinated your children?
