Hep B is not so easily contracted. Unless your baby will be needle sharing or having sex(which, I am assuming, is a no), then your baby is really not at risk. Your friend kissing your baby is not an issue, that will not transfer it.
Autism, though it gets the most media time, is not the only concern when it comes to vaccinations. With the toxic ingredients comes many different reactions, one of which is death.
The best thing you can do is research each individual vaccination and decide if you want that given to your child. Research the vaccine, the ingredients, the possible reactions and rates of reactions, the disease, possible complications and rates of complications. And remember that it is not an all or nothing deal. You can delay them as long as you wish, pick and choose which ones you would like, and not give any at all, if you decide. Remember that while you can always go back later and get them, if you decide, you cannot take back what has already been given.
My personal take: We do not do any vaccinations at all. In a nutshell, I believe the risks of my children suffering a reaction to the vaccinations are much greater than the risk of them contracting a disease and suffering complications to it. Many of these diseases are complication free in healthy immune system. Polio is 95% asymptomatic, and less than 1% of those cases end in paralysis.
I also greatly disagree with injecting my children with, what I view are, toxins. Mercury isn't my only concern, and some vaccines still do contain mercury in trace amounts and are still allowed to be called "mercury free". Aluminum, formaldehyde, and antibiotics are only a few of the vaccine ingredients I am concerned about.
And I have extreme issues with the level of their testing, as all vaccinations are not tested for carcinogenic or mutagenic properties, or effects on fertility.
Oh, and I should add that my decision has absolutely nothing to do with the Autism theory whatsoever. I made my decision before I even heard about it, and am not convinced on the link completely myself.
And your children do no have to have shots to get into public school/daycare. No vaccine is mandatory, you do not have to give them to your child. My 3 children do not have any. All states offer some sort of exemption for school and daycare, you just need to know how to get them.
