"Know your risks and responsibilities

The Canadian Paediatric Society urges all children to receive routine vaccinations and an annual influenza (flu) vaccine, unless there is a medical reason not to.

If you choose not to vaccinate your child, against one or more vaccine-preventable diseases, you should understand the risks. You need to know how to make it less likely that your child gets an infection or spreads disease to others." - Choosing Not To Vaccinate Your Child? Know Your Risks and Responsibilities
