I am so angry! I just got off the phone with our local health dept. to request a vaccine exemption form and was treated with utter contempt on the phone by the staff person. She drilled me about my childs age and immunization stataus, and when I tried to have a dialog with her she was practically spitting at me over the phone. NOt only that but she was close to telling me outright lies! I am furious. No wonder it is so hard for parents to get any info at all. No one wants to discuss even the remote possibility of vaccine reactions....they think I am a total imbecile and crazy. She did not have any usefull info to give me and pretty much hung up on me. I tried to explain to her that I have been doing research, am a Biologist, and have studied extensively. Why waste my breath, as far as she was concerned I am a complete idiot! However, I must say I finaly got a hold of a state epidemiologist who was a very good source of information and not at all hostile. Excuse bad spelling, I don't know how to do spell check in this thing.
