Jenny McCarthy insists she isn't ''anti-vaccine.''
The 'The View' co-host, whose 11-year-old son Evan has autism, hit back at her critics for blasting her for her controversial stance on inoculation, and thinks children shouldn't have to undergo several injections at once because they could be linked to the development disorder.
The 41-year-old star wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper on Saturday (12.04.14): ''I am not 'anti-vaccine.' This is not a change in my stance nor is it a new position that I have recently adopted. For years, I have repeatedly stated that I am, in fact, 'pro-vaccine' and for years I have been wrongly branded as 'anti-vaccine.'''
The blonde beauty, who is dating Donnie Wahlberg, credits her son for inspiring her to ask more questions.
She said: ''What happened to critical thinking? What happened to asking questions because every child is different? I embarked on this quest not only for myself and my family, but for countless parents who shared my desire for knowledge that could lead to options and alternate schedules, but never to eliminate the vaccines.''
She added: ''For my child, I asked for a schedule that would allow one shot per visit instead of the multiple shots they were and still are giving infants.
''One size does not fit all.''
Kristin Cavallari also recently came under fire after she decided not to vaccinate her child.
She said: ''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 is 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.''
