Yes, one of the very last times we saw a ped for a "well baby" checkup, which then in my mind and heart is forever changed to, "pressure you to vax by fear mongering and distributing mis-information" our kind ped informed me that, "It ain't gonna be those crazy anti-vaccination hippies standing by your child's bedside when he or she is dying from chicken pox illness...it'll be me..and where will your hippie ways have gotten you then"... Yeah, he was actually sweating he took it so badly. Never did he cite actual examples, or experiences, just raged with hatred at anti-vax'ers.
I suppose there are about as many incorrect assumptions on his part in that statement as there are syllables, but to knit pick, I thought it was funny that he lumped me in with "crazy hippies."
I'm a conservative independent Christian quiverfull mom. Don't get any more "non hippie" than that. I guess we aren't allowed to have a free-thinking brain, though...we should just go mainstream and line up for shots cause' others do?
We are up in Northern Idaho, close to the Canadian border. I haven't heard of any outbreaks, except for the whooping cough outbreak the local news is blaming on a resurgence of the disease due to people who haven't gotten their kids vaccinated.
