As a child I received only the "dead" polio vaccine. My daughter was born in 1988. Even then her doctor warned me about the risks to me, as well as grandparents! When I had to change her diaper within X amount of hours of her receiving the live vaccine, I used disposable gloves and washed well.

The controversy over live vs. dead polio vaccine has been going on since I was little. My dad wouldn't let me have it even then. And that's quite a while ago.

I worry about my daughter not being vaccinated against small pox. Eradicated or not, it exists in every biological warfare laboratory in the world. Scary stuff. :-/
