I'm new to this site so be patient with me!
I have a new family member who is 21 and expecting her first child. As a child, she never received any immunizations and plans to do the same for her new baby. Needless to say, as an RN, I am shocked. She says she and her mother heard they were "bad" for you, and points out that she's never been sick. Help !! I'm sick... What are/can be the consequences? Any feedback will be so appreciated.
