CPS called ETA

CPS was called, and now some women is checking up on us this friday. I'm guessing it has to do with us refusing to vaccinate our kids. Our pediatrician told me i'm not a doctor and she strongly reccommends vaccines. Well now i'm upset and stressed out. I've never had CPS called on me before. I even asked the lady if she was joking. Sorry this is all over the place but i'm so upset that a doctor would do this. We are great parents to our children. Does anyone have any advice?

I'm in South Carolina. I think it was the pediatrician, because the case worker said she wanted to see if the kids were up to date on the immunizations. My children do recieve medicaid even though we never applied. Apparently the $48 of food stamps we use to recieve qualified us to be automatically signed up for it. I kept medicaid since Tricare doesn't give them dental. Anyways, I'm starting to hate south carolina. First it was doctors in my area refused to "let" me have a vbac. I was traveling 2 hours away to a birth center for 3 months only to end up having a emergency c-section. And now not vaxing my kids is an issue. When does it end. MY HEALTHCARE, How is it mine??

You don't have to let them in if they don't have a warrant or a police officer present.

don't worry about it. its the dr's way of bullying you into vx'ing. id find a new ped tomorrow though! cps isn't going to do anything. shes only coming out bc she has to, if it were her choice, im willing to bet she wouldn't bother.

As of now you still have the right to not vaccinate your child. I doubt they can do anything.

Find a new doctor.

and then just explain to the CPS worker why you've decided to do that. Sooooo, many parents decided to not vaccinate their babies. It's not against the law!!

Good for the doctor. Not vaxing is stupid and neglectful.
