So I (thankfully) became aware of the issues surrounding vaccines before taking my son to his first baby well check up.  However, when I had him in June 2009, at boca raton community hospital, I was not aware that most hospitals give hep b at birth.  I remember signing a bunch of forms upon admittance, but didn't really read them.  No one ever came and asked me to sign anything authorizing vaccination.  I'm afraid that I may have signed it in the initial paperwork.  I did call the hospital and they told me they don't give hep b unless the mother is positive for it.  I felt the issue was resolved for a while, but now I still have my doubts as to whether the person I spoke with told me the truth or even knew the policy.  We haven't been to the Ped in about six months and I don't anticipate a visit anytime soon as we don't vax and he's never sick.  I suppose I could call, but I'm almost too scared!  I'm pretty sure he didn't receive it but wanted to know if anyone else delivered there and knew the policy.  Thanks!

Have you considered getting his records?  You probably have to pay copy charges for them (FL law allows for that) but they are yours if you request them.  You could call the hospital and ask to talk to records.
