Does anyone happen to know of a pediatrician in Oklahoma who is okay with delaying vaccinations? I cannot find any!

  • If thats how you want it, Then you tell your doc thats how it's gonna be. Thats your choice not theirs. They can't make you. And if it;s a prblem with school. Then go to your health dep. and ask for a paper that you sign for the school

  • I don't understand why you would want to delay that unless it's medically necessary. There is more risk to your child by not doing this.

  • doctors cannot do anything you do not consent to. Screw the doctor if he isn't for delaying them It's your choice, tell him to get over his opinion.

  • No they can't make you. But if it is a private practice they don't have to treat you either. Don't tell them until you are in the office. Once you are there you are an established patient.

  • I dont understand why you would want to do that? They have to be up to date on all shots by the time they start school so by delaying them now you are putting them behind in the long run. How ever its not your doctors choice it is your so just let him know i guess you want to delay them.
