  • Ok first off, they are safe and effective, doctors never claim that they are safe and effective for 100% of the time or for 100% of people, infact when your child gets vaccines you get paperwork about the virus about possible side affects and risks. So NO, there is no reason for a doc to go to court about Vaccines in general

  • You cannot because it was decided in court that you cannot. It was years ago. If you do the research that is part of a hold harmless clause. You'll find that the drug manufacturers and the doctors cannot be held liable for vaccines.

  • UGH! If you dont like it, then dont vaccinate! I think NOT vaccinating is pretty fu$*ing stupid, but to each their own!

  • Both of you pro vaccinating parents can mind your own business. I only want responses from mothers who THINK FOR THEMSELVES. It is very easy to believe what you are told. And this may come to a shock for you but SANTA CLAUS IS NOT REAL.

  • well if you want to be that way, then take the doc to court and good luck

  • you wont be able to take a dr to court. and its been obvious that i dont believe in vaccines........just do your research so the next time they offer you can say no. i dont think its something ppl should be petty and cussing others out as above. we have a right to choose not to. and no its not stupid. kids can still get the diseases that your being vaccinated for. i hate that they're called immunizations bc if you were truly immune to it, a booster would NOT be needed.........

  • Switch doctors, my doctor tells me the options. Everything involves risk-it is scarey.

    Alot of people think it is safer. I saw a true story once, a parent didn't believe in Vaccines, and wind up getting another little baby sick at a play area. Well the baby was to weak to fight the illness and died and the toddler who didn't get the shot lived. It is a tough call but you as the parent need to protect your kid. I get my kids vaccinated my oldest is 13 going on 14, thank God no problems.

  • First off, there is no prof that vaccines are NOT safe and effective. All drugs have side effects and those are always (if not, then pursue the doctor) provided to the parent so they will be informed. They are effective in so much as they have helped to irradicate many diseases. If they weren't effective, those diseases would still be around.

    The question of side effects could be debates as to if all side effects are listed. But sometimes, they just can't know them all and provide the most information the can at the time. That doesn't make the doctor the bad guy. He's looking out for the greater good.

  • Wow, OP. Why ask a question if you are going to dictate the responses? How do you know that vaccinating parents aren't thinking for themselves. Just becuase we vaccinate doesn't mean we haven't put thought into the pros and cons. And just because you distrust doctors, doesn't mean you can sue them. That's part of the reason we need reform on malpractice insurance and lawsuits.
