Kristin Cavallari Defends Anti-Vaccine Stance: I'm Just a Mom, it's Just My Decision!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kristin Cavallari knows a lot of people don't support her choice to not vaccinate her son, but she's okay with that, saying it's her personal choice.

Appearing on Watch What Happens Live Tuesday, the pregnant former Hills star defended her anti-vaccine stance as "the best decision" for her family.

"We got a lot of questions, Kristin, about your stand on vaccines," Andy Cohen said, not beating around the Kristin Cavallari anti-vaccine bush.

"Kat George wants to know, 'How can you knowingly support the spread of potentially deadly diseases by not vaccinating your children?'"

The reality star turned shoe designer, 27, replied, "Here's the thing: At the end of the day, I'm just a mom. I'm trying to make the best decision for my kid,"

"There are very scary statistics out there regarding what's in vaccines and what they cause, asthma, allergies, ear infections, all kinds of things."

"And we feel like we're making the best decision for our kids."

She notably did not include autism in her answer ... this time around.

Kristin Cavallari's opinion first came to light last week when she confessed on the Fox Business show The Independents that she hadn't vaccinated Camden.

"You know what, I've read too many books about autism," she said.

"There is a pediatric group called Homestead, or Home First. They've never vaccinated any of their children, and they've never had one case of autism."

Somewhere, Jenny McCarthy is nodding ... and others are baffled.

She later noted on Fox & Friends that the response to her comments had been "harsh," and that she had not planned to talk about the topic originally.

"It's not something that I publicly wanted to come out and say," she explained. "I was in an interview and it came up, and it wasn't what I was expecting."

Vaccinating children: For or against?

Kickpuncher, you're ignorant and dangerous. The truth is childhood diseases started to diminish in correlation with education about improved hygiene & sanitation well BEFORE vaccines were invented. You'll never hear this from the pharmaceutical companies or the doctors they have indoctrinated.

There is a girl in my daughter's school who has an older sister who had an allergic reaction to a vaccine when only 6 months old. She is home bound as she cannot handle crowds. The parents never go anywhere together, as one always has to stay home with the affected child. So sad for the younger sister. Have never asked if they vaccinated their 2nd child, but would understand if they hadn't!!

Ya....except your decision doesn't just effect YOUR kids. It effects all the immune-compromised children who CANNOT be vaccinated and who rely on herd-immunity to protect them. Ignorant and dangerous.
