i took my girls to the pediatrician today for their 3 & 4 year checkups (granted im about 4 months late but thats neither here nor there) and when i was speaking with the doctor, as he was checking over their immunization record he said "they're outdated for the flu shot so they'll need that today, yep, they'll have to get that today". before i had the chance to tell him no, the nurse told him they didnt have it in stock anyway. but he must've thought i was an imbecile who doesnt know that flu shots arent mandatory with the cdc guidelines. unless something has changed in the last year which i highly doubt. we aren't an anti-vax family and we dont delay shots or anything, but the flu vaccine is the one shot that we always opt out of. i was thankful they didn't have it because i didn't feel like justifying my reasons and i dont think i shouldve had to anyway.

I would have just informed him "We don't do the flu shot" End of discussion.
