We have gone to every well check and they give us such a hard time about not vaccinating. I do not want my darling daughter vaccinated at all but I told them we would start around 2 years (she's 6 months) to get them to shut up. Every time they make me sign a form saying I'm not having her vaccinated and last time my pediatrician said "I don't see what the problem is, vaccines aren't some type of voddoo magic". But she did say she would ease up on the pressure some because now we have given her a "start date." I will not be vaccinating her at the start date though so what happens when we get to that checkup? Could they report us for not vaccinating though we first said we would? We have Medicaid for our daughter so I don't know if there is extra rules as far as seeing the pediatrian goes or what? We don't have a primary care doctor, I just see the gyno for my birth control and my dd sees the pediatrician for her checkups.
*** I do plan to keep doing well checks but I'm tired of being harrassed about our decision. I am afraid of what will happen when my daughter turns two and we do not let them start vaccinating like we said we would. There are other pediatrians we could see that belong to the same practice, we saw one other when my daughter was first born but she was an awful, mean old lady and literally made me cry on the way home :-/ I would like to find a general practice but have no idea where to start. I have insurance through my parents company but I'm not sure how to find who takes Medicaid children as well... I'm assuming just call around and ask but it all so daunting..
