If it was as simple as that, I would sign it. I also have to sign a form saying that I have been explained all of the potential side effects and ingredients of the vaccines, that I understand what to do in case of an adverse event, and that I know I have the right to refuse, when I go to my daughter's pediatrician in the United States. I sign that, too.
|I have accepted prescriptions for several things, and then thrown them in the trash when I get home, for example...
Watch out for one thing here. Those prescriptions might contain ingredients that commonly cause allergic reactions, and if your doctor thinks that your kid took them and had no problems, then he or she might also give you poor information about looking for allergic reactions in the future, or the medical records might. Like when you go to the ER or the hospital (for whatever reason) and they ask if you are allergic to "X". I usually write "no KNOWN allergies" and tick "unknown" for a lot of the ingredients. However if your doctor sees that the kid has already had medicine x with no reaction, he is not going to have information he needs if something does go funny.
I am not suggesting that that is at all a reason to TAKE the meds. God knows I have refused a number of things that our peds here and in the US have recommended. I'm just saying- watch for those records re: allergic reactions.
Sorry, don't want to derail the thread, just had to say that.
