well think about who this will appeal to. I do find it interesting that a holistic pediatrician has this on their page however. that is a joke.

 

You couldn't give me a 20 dollar coupon to McDonalds for doing anything! My DS is 3 and whenever we drive by a McDonalds he points and says "Donald's has yucky food mommy!"

oh sorry i didn't specify they were saying how sucky it was cos one of their clients had gotten it they werent condoning. and not even the mcdonalds but to bribe with anything is wrong i think... they should be educating the parents to make an informed decision instead of bribing grr and yeah we recently went to get ds a rio toy cos he loved the movie but we just bought it for like 1.50 at the drive thru haha.

Even my friend, who fully vaccinates her daughter, was like WTF?!

 

Way to move them sheep. The people that are all excited about this "promo" are the ones that blindly follow everything their drs. do or say without ever researching it. It's sad.

Yup....They probably don't know what's in those McDonald's hamburgers either.

Well, if a gift card to McDonalds is reason enough to vaccinate, I suspect those children *should* be vaccinated.  Children with poor diets tend to also have poor immune systems.

I find it interesting that a health insurance company is encouraging fast food consumption.

If I do extra boosters and experimental shots for my kid, will I then get a supersized meal? /sarcasm end

Now, if they were offering a vaccination for diabetes, that might make some sense eyesroll.gif.

We must be neighbors. smile.gif They've been doing those tray liners for at least a few years. Did you know that vaccines are even administered at some of our local Mickey D's locations on a regular basis? Yum.

That's appalling, Mc Donald's administering vaccines. I don't know what's worse--administering vaccines or Big-MSG-Macs! Lol!

It's actually not McDs directly administering shots - one of the local nonprofit orgs (related to a health insurance company) administers the shots out in the McDs parking lot in their mobile van. All the paperwork is done inside in the play area though.
