i wish i hadn't gone. yesterday i took my 2 yo and 5 yo to wbv, just to get to know the ped. youngest hadn't been and oldest hasn't since she was maybe 2. well, i refused the vaxes. doctor came in with a waiver for me to sign, from the AAP. i told her i might be able to sign it if i could cross some things out.
here is the form: http://www.cispimmunize.org/pro/pdf/..._2pageform.pdf - 79.9KB
i crossed out this statement and signed it: I know that failure to follow the recommendations about vaccination may endanger the health or life of my child and others that my child might come in contact with.
she wasn't happy with my crossing out that statement and came back in and said she wasn't comfortable and that she wouldn't see my kids.
i only wanted to have a relationship with a doctor in case we need one. i'd like to have someone who knows my girls be able to treat them. i guess we are searching again...
just thought i'd share my experience.
suschi, i love your form and I used it with one change. instead of saying "I understand the following:
● The intended purpose of and the need for the recommended vaccine(s)."
I wrote "I understand the intended purpose of and the reason for recommending the above-listed vaccines." My ped would have been cool with "we don't vax" written on a cocktail napkin in crayon though!
We do go to WBV, but our ped is anti-vax (though the practice is pro-vax) and way cool with everything we do.
