In brief: All

Quite frankly, all of them.The current list of vaccinations have been vetted thru ongoing research and surveillance to be safe and prevent what used to be millions of cases and thousands of deaths.
When not given to people, the rate of the preventable diseases rises leading to more suffering.Some of the diseases were more common than others, but the suffering was blind to bias.Do you want to risk baby.

In brief: All

As long as there is international air travel, a person incubating these illnesses could be in your mall or supermarket the day after they left the third world.
Skip the shots & you return your kid to the risk rates of the 19th century. If you want to get your health care info from playboy bunnies or the deep net, fine, but don't expect us to agree.

In brief: It is a risk-benefit

Analysis.
The benefit of preventing life-threatening diseases like measles, tetanus, whooping cough and polio as compared to the potential, usually minimal adverse reactions. Would you walk across the jersey turnpike with a blindfold on or eat raw chicken without cooking it? Same thing. All the vaccines are necessary.
