After doing research and reading Dr Sears' vaccine book I have decided to go with an alternate vaccine schedule and will defer several vaccines altogether. I am wondering if there is anyone who can recommend a pediatrician in the gig harbor/ Tacoma area that is supportive in this area. I hate to get lectured every time we go in. That's why I took the time to research each vaccine so I could make the decision myself.

I don't know about GH or Tacoma, but we're in Port Orchard and the GP I see (very very occassionally) was pretty cool about it.  No lecture, nothing.  The nurses were all: Great! less work for us.


I don't know if that's an option for you, but at least you know they are out there.

Fir Creek Pediatrics in Lakewood on Bridgeport. We vax on schedule but do other alternative practices and she's talked to me about vaxing in the past, and stated that she goes with what folks choose.
