Name that lie . . . and other scaremongering stories and quotes from your ped - Page 2

post #21 of 666
It's immoral to not get vaccines and expose your child to dangerous diseases.

Said in response to my flat, firm "we are religiously opposed to vaccinations" stance.

My oldest dd's first pediatrician told me that "recent studies have shown that a baby can get 10,000 shots in one day and their bodies can handle it." Unfortunately, I believed her and let her vax my baby for nearly a year.

I would LOVE to know where she thinks they'd get that kind of data?!

Because your days-old baby is going to be sharing needles with drug addicts and having unprotected sex?

After expressing my concerns about a family history of seizures following the DTP, my doctor spoke to an infectious disease doctor and asked about the possibility of my son having a seizure following the DTaP...he told her it was a 0% chance. He should really let the drug manufacturer know cause I'm sure they'd love to change their package insert which clearly states the risks of neurological reactions including seizures.

"It's against the law not to vaccinate."

"I'm going to have to talk to the Health Department to see what I need to do in your situation."

"He'll get sick if you don't vaccinate."

"He'll get others sick if you don't vaccinate."

"If you won't vaccinate, then you cannot be apart of this practice anymore--it's too much of a risk for our other patients."

"You're fortunate to never have seen these diseases. I've seen them. Babies die from Diptheria and Pertussis"

"Don't you trust me?"

"I've been in practice for 25 years and I've never seen a negative vaccine reaction other than a fever"

"There's no Mercury in our vaccines."

...We obviously left that practice!!

That link is ridiculous

I love how the pp's ped referred to that as "recent studies" :

"If your child hasn't had whooping cough by the time he/she is five, you have to get the DTP vaccine, because older kids getting wc after they are five is really dangerous. They could die."

and

"Tetnaus is deadly, if you get it, you're going to die."

And this was uttered by a supposedly "alternative" and non vax friendly family doctor.

It's the stupid moms like you who don't vaccinate that are going to get everyone else sick and die. Said by an ex friend when I asked what her problem was with me lately (this was awhile back).

Cause it's stupid moms like you who don't vaccinate. They ruin it for everyone else. Said by the same person in response to, "If vaccines are so great why are you worried about my one unvaccinated child giving you something?"

She did just fine. Maybe your so called reactions are cause you aren't healthy. Not cause you got vaccines. Those make you healthy. Same girl in response to the fact that we have had reactions (in DH) and that not all reactions are immediately visible.

But she didn't really even say what Offit is saying. The link given in a pp says "Offit and colleagues calculate that infants could theoretically respond to as many as 10,000 vaccines at one time."
and I thought I read somewhere (on the aap site?) that the 10,000 number was the number of antigens (is that the right word I'm looking for?) that a baby's immune system could handle. It didn't take into account the toxins in the vaccines.

So, even though she read the studies, she quoted them wrong, and was giving wrong info.

"you'll have to give your child the meningococcal B vaccine because I've had 6 cases of meningococcal invasive disease just this year alone in my practice."

This was said by a doctor to a mother who had elected to not give that shot, after her husband who was with her said, "Well there aren't many cases of it anymore".

They got worried, but rang me, and I was able to find out for them that there hadn't been even 6 cases in the whole medical district that doctor was under...covering 350,000 people, according to official statistics, for this year so far!

That doctor probably won't see 6 cases in his whole life!

People who don't vax should have their kids taken away and given to people who actually LOVE them

You know you have to homeschool because by law you have to have vaxes for school

"That doesn't count as a bad reaction to a vaccine"... in response to me refusing further vaccinations for my daughter after she had a fever of 105 and convulsions from the MMR.

Said to my baby: "You don't want to get meningitis and die, do you? Do you, now? No, that's a good baby. So let's give you a shot so you don't die."
