Does anyone have a sample of a refusal to vaccinate form? I found one on the computer, but I do not like it, it is too harsh. I refuse to sign the one the doctor has from the American Pediatric Academy. I was never asked to sign one until my last visit with a new nurse.
Honestly, your best bet is to make one yourself and attach it to a TON of research, and a 1-page summary of the research. The more you have, the better.
When I refused at my last Ped, I brought in over 200 articles and a quick 1-page summary of the research explaining why I was refusing. At the very bottom of the summary page I wrote the below for the doctor to sign, forcing the doctor to acknowledge that s/he was going against the American Academy of Pediatrics policy (they say NOT to drop a child from the practice simply because they're not vaccinating).
"I, Doctor (name), refuse to participate in the care of (name of child) due to the parent/s (name/s) Informed Refusal to vaccinate. I have read the parents' attached research and have unsuccessfully attempted to convince them to vaccinate the above child. I understand this goes against AAP guidelines "
Congrats to finding a doctor!! I'm having serious problems finding a doctor.
Here's the AAP info about Not Vaxing:
I cross out the parts I don't like and initial. On the one my ped has, you can cross out enough to make it sound like vaccinating is a bad idea. ;) And then I signed it. Voila!
