Article titled: Some U.S. doctors may give up vaccines due to cost
http://www.wtop.com/?nid=106&sid=1529296

Most pediatricians are likely to keep giving vaccinations to kids, partly because of altruism and partly because giving shots drives business. "For us to give up vaccines would hurt our core business because that's why kids come in," Lessin said.


...oops, there was already a post about this...

My FP, who's an osteopath, (assuming you mean "Family Practice") wouldn't take our son, and told me to "stay off the Internet". Our ped (who ironically is now in the same group as our FP) is perfectly fine not vaccinating. It's all about the individual.
