In brief: There Isn't One
There are no complementary or alternative medicines to vaccinate a child.
There are only two ways a child becomes immune to a particular disease: a) having the disease and recovering from it, or b) being vaccinated.

There are no proven natural, organic or homeopathic alternatives to immunizations.
Thus you have to hope your child does not come down with life-threatening vaccine preventable diseases and if so, that medication is available to maybe save their life.Despite medicine's best efforts, prior to the hib vaccine 2-3000 children died yearly from this disease in 2010 it was 2.This was due to the vaccine.

In brief: Agree
Correct. The alternative to vaccination is not to vaccinate.
Some practitioners recommend homeopathic nosodes as an alternative to vaccines. They work great if there is an epidemic to help prevent illness. Homeopathic vaccines do not stimulate antibody response. Maintaining a healthy immune system is your best bet. Chinese medicine / homeopathy are worth researching.
