I took my youngest dd (21 months) in to the clinic today because she broke out in a strange rash. I have recently been exposed to two babies who contracted measles from the MMR shot. I told the NP this today, and she was like oh, that's just a measles rash, not the measles. Ok, I may not be a doctor but isn't that the same thing. I know for a fact that each child did have measles, as they had other symptoms. She then said well, she's had her MMR anyway so if those babies did have measles you couldn't transfer it to her. I told her no, she has not had that shot or any other since the 6 month series because of a reaction. She got all up in arms asking why and then said, well her own son had the measles rash from the shot and he's fine. Ugh. I hate seeing this NP, our regular ped knows I have stopped vaxing and doesn't say a word about it.

Not many people here would say their PED is vax-friendlier than an NP! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="huh"><br><br>
I guess this just shows it's not wise to make blanket assumptions, huh.
