Hi Everyone,

I'm a brand new mom who just moved to central PA and I'm having trouble finding a pediatrician who does not require vaccines in the area. Does anyone know of someone?

Any help or guidance would be greatly apprecaited!

Thank you!

i'm in the lewistown area and we are no vax. our ped does not agree with it but seems tolerant. he was fine with delaying but after dd turned a year he began to put a little pressure on. however, at her 2yr appt he seems to have accepted it and the only thing he said is that he now has a second no-vax patient. if you are interested i can give you his name.

Thank you. Yes, his name would be great. It's a little far, but at least it's somewhere to start. Do you think other physicians would become more tolerant over time as well?

Thank you again!

Could you email me the name of that doctor too?  I'm due March 30th and the closest "vaccine friendly" doctor I can find is in Norristown.  Sorry, but I didn't see a response with the name on the posts.

 

Thank you!

I live in the York area and my ds sees the doctors at Springdale Pediatrics.  While they did discuss the possible "dangers" of not vaxxing, once i stated my decision the rest was paperwork and legalities and no fuss. At Every well-baby visit I'm required to sign a paper refusing the vax which I'm on edge about each time out of fear I'll get that judgmental eye or a speech. but so far, just paperwork.
