Once our family moved into a new home I started to look for a new Pediatrician.

I was SHOCKED by many of the responses from the staff.
I got downright refusals if I didn't vaccinate to one nurse saying "How would you feel if your unvaccinated child killed a room full full infants too young to be vaccinated"?

I was unable to find ped to see our family so now we use a walk in clinic. We have a family care Dr that will see us and takes families that don't vaccinate/delay vaccinate but now it's a 4 plus month wait to get into the Drs and for us a 2 hour drive...

It makes me sad that none of the Drs are willing to talk with me to ease my concerns they will just flat our refuse to talk to me.

I think the best response to that sort of over-the-top hysteria is two part:

1) Thank the nurse with painful politeness for sharing her opinion.

2) Share the article about the 700,000 cases of flu each year spread during well-baby visits. And ask the nurse with even more painful politeness how many calls their office gets from parents of babies who got sick after their "well-baby" visits? https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/02/140212144611.htm

Often the best attack is a graceful retreat.

How would your child contract a disease to kill them in the first place?:eek:

You'd get the response of a blatant lie right out of her mouth back to you.
"We don't get those kinds of calls"
"Whatever you read on google isn't true"
"It's normal for babies to be sick after vaccines"
"Oh, babies get sick all the time"

and other pooh pooh excuses.....NEVER the truth.

Published study--just deny

Mainstream news--just lie

You've got it.
