Vaccinations: Your Views and Theories

I am really interested in knowing what people's vaccination theories are here. I have been doing some research and am leaning towards not vaccinating anyone again! http://www.shirleys-wellness-cafe.co...acc2.htm#qanda

Officially the AAHA has now issued a 3 year vx protocol for both cats and dogs, but some vaccines have been shown to provide immunity for up to 7 years. As I understand the 3 year guideline just came about as sort of a compromise between these studies and what vets were willing to do that would not cause them to loose too much money.The protocol that reccomended that you vaccinate every year really came about by chance as it boosted profit and also made sure people brought their pets in for regular check ups. http://www.aahanet.org/PublicDocumen...s06Revised.pdf

So I am just interested in how often you vaccinate and why you choose to do it the way you do, and any interesting articles you may have come across along the way.
