I just scheduled a well child visit for my ds b/c he does attend parents day out one day a week and they need his records for the vaxes. The receptionists made a comment about him needing 2 vaccines before kindergarten. I mentioned that he was going to be homeschooled so we didn't need to worry about the vaxes. I did ask out of curiosity what vaxes would he get if he were to get them. She said MMR and the second chicken pox. I said that he shouldn't need the chicken pox since he never got the 1st one. She said that the computer says he got the 1st one in 2006 along with the 1st MMR. I told her I distinctly remember saying NO to the chicken pox. She said she would look in his actual records. She did say then he did get the first chicken pox along with the MMR. She said it was combined.
I AM LIVID. They went against my wishes. I even remember signing papers saying no to certain vaxes.
The office manager and the our current ped is going to talk with me on Friday when I take the twins in for their 2yr visit. I am hoping that it someone wrote it down wrong in the file.
We have been through 3 peds at this office. The first moved out of state, the 2nd became head of some dept in the hospital and now we are on our 3rd. I have been wanting to check out another ped office closer to home whom I have heard great things about but I need to find out what their views are on delay and select vaxes and how they treat me as a mom making those decisions for my kids. This may be the time to leave this office.
Update: I did not get to speak with the office manager today. I was informed that she went out of state today to visit her grandkids. She has a note on her desk from our doc and she is going to call sometime on Monday.
I did talk with our doc about what might have happened and b/c she wasn't our ped at the time, she can't really say.
