Mothering receives a lot of posts from  members looking for practitioners in their area who are flexible about vaccinations. They are looking for a doctor who will be supportive of their decision, whether it be to not vaccinate, vaccinate selectively, or vaccinate on a delayed schedule.

 

We have a community full of members with recommendations to share, whether it be practitioners you know personally or through your family, others in your area, or members who have shared recommendations in their posts here at Mothering. Many of these recommendations are found in the Tribal Areas forums as well as in the Vaccinations forums, and possibly elsewhere in discussions. You may even know of some from other sites on the internet.  We need your help. By gathering these recommendations into a single list we can create a wonderful resource for the Mothering community. 

 

Here are the contest rules:

 

 

To be an “Eligible Entry”:

 

  • Submit a listing for a vaccine flexible practitioner's name, office address and contact information

 

  • Listings may be gathered from recommendations given in posts on the Mothering.com forums

 

  • Each listing should be placed in a new post to this thread along with either a link to where the information was taken or clarification of how the listing was obtained (see example in post 2).

 

  • Listings must be original to the list and not already posted to the contest thread by another contestant member

 

 

Prizes

First Place: One $50 Amazon Gift Certificate plus one Mothering Supporter Membership

Second Place: One $25 Amazon Gift Certificate plus one Mothering Supporter Membership

Third Place: One Mothering Supporter Membership

 

 

Prize Drawing:  All qualified submissions will be judged by a panel, which is comprised of members of Mothering’s senior editorial team.  The Submissions will be judged according to the following equally weighted factors: number of original listings posted by the entrant to the thread along with a link to originally posted listing if it was taken from another thread on the forum or clarification of how the listing was obtained. The decisions of the judges will be final. A Submission must not have been posted to the contest thread by another entrant.  A Submission may not violate the intellectual property or proprietary rights of other parties.

 

Please read the Terms and Conditions of this contest to make sure you qualify and understand the requirements. The contest will begin Tuesday, August 28, 2012 and will end at midnight Monday night, September 10, 2012

She is a traditional MD but she is very receptive and welcoming to those who don't vax or are on an S/D schedule.  However you must request her as your doctor, the other one in the practice is not vaccine flexible.

 

She is our family pediatrician and we are non-vax.

Respectfully, why is this a contest?  It would be more ethical simply to have a list of "MDC friendly doctors" rather than try to use the excuse of a contest to collect date and information, if thats what the goal is.

 

I have a very supportive ped who was very open to me delaying and selecting my vaxes and went through the process with me.  However, I don't doubt for a minute that she would be very upset if i advertised her name all over a message board that has a strong anti-vax agenda.  A general list of doctor recommendations would be ok, but advertising what these doctors do and don't do for us may not be appreciated.  They are professionals, within a professional community, and I know in my own career, it wouldn't sit well with me.  i.e. if i am a Propane Gas salesperson, I would not like if a customer told the internet about the giant discount I gave them as a favor or because of a good relationship with them.

 

Might i propose that, as with many nominations for public contests, that the people submitting the names and private experiences of their doctors simple ASK their doctor if its ok that they do so?  Then again, if it was just a list of MDC friendly doctors available for recommendation (leaving out the private details), and not a contest, then no permission is necessary.

This.


Our pediatrician is also very supportive, but he is part of a large group practice, and I think it would be extremely unethical for me to put his name on the internet with any information that could be used against him by his managing partner (who does not share the same perspective), or by the insurance/pharmaceutical industry.

 

I completely understand and agree with the need to let parents know which providers might be able to work with them, but I don't think this is the right way, not when we know that so many people have an agenda to prevent these providers from allowing parents to delay vaccines.
