Non vax moms in Vegas?

Any moms who live in Vegas who choose to not vaccinate? If so I was wondering what pediatrician you have. Thank you! :D

  • Did you mean to put this in the religion section?

  • I'm not from LA... but if I'm not mistaken, didn't they just disprove the whole vax thing is bad for your kids?

    I believe they did.

  • Vegas is not in LA, no they did not, whomever "they" is, and neither one of you answered her question.

    I don't live in that area either, but you can try going to the choosing not to vaccinate group and looking for the link about peds. My pediatrician is extrememly supportive of our choice to selectively vaccinate and we exempt religiously for school. So...good luck.

  • Check out some of the non-vax groups. most of them have a list of pediatritians. We do not vaccinate and went through quite a few pediatritians so I hear you! Start calling and asking there views. More and more of them now know that vaccinations are harmful... We just had a big local article with a list of pediatritians that didn't believe in vaccinating. Thankfully there are enough of us to make people start checking... Sorry I couldn't help but hopefully someone in the groups can.

  • I live in Vegas and we use dr. Blank at Summerlin hospital...he's wonderful. We do vax but when I questioned him about it he was very undertanding and probably wouldn't have if we didn't want to. Call them and ask. Its Desert Valley Pediatrics.

  • Wrong section.

    Answer by Alize26 at 3:29 PM on Mar. 17, 2009

  • Thank you momofsaee, SabrinaMBowen, and calliesmommie.
    I posted this in this section because I had a hard time finding a section to put it in. Does it really matter? It's a belief I have to choose to not vaccinate and when going to school it'll be for religious reasons. So I felt this was the right section, sorry.
    Thank you to the 3 I named above. Blank and Kirmani are in my medical book of doctors we can have so we'll interview both of them.
    Good luck to all you non vaxing mom's out there, it might be hard but it'll all worth it. Keep strong!
    If anyone else finds anymore doctors who are non vax friendly let me know. Thanx. :D
