Kristin Cavallari Explains Why She Doesn’t Want to Vaccinate Her Kids
Former “The Hills” star Kristin Cavallari is not vaccinating her children, and she has her reasons.
Cavallari, who co-hosts the E! show “The Fabulist,” appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday and addressed her anti-vaccination stance.
Host Andy Cohen said some viewers sent in their questions. "How can you knowingly support the spread of potentially deadly diseases by not vaccinating your children?" Cohen read from one viewer.
Kristin responded. "Well, 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 regarding what is in vaccines and what they cause. Asthma, allergies, ear infections, all kinds of things. We feel like we are making the best decision for our kids.”
Cavallari and husband Jay Cutler have a son, 18 months, and are expecting their second child in the spring.
A recent outbreak of measles in New York has reopened the vaccination debate.
