Vaccination requirements?

I am thinking about delaying my daughters vaccinations but want to be prepared if my pediatrician tries to force it on me. It's my understanding that vaccinations aren't a requirement until I decide to put her in daycare and when I enroll her in school? Is there anything else I should know? She is 2 months old and just got her 2 month vaccines, we have decided vaccinating is not for us at this point.

I think thats it as long as she is not in school or daycare then she is okay I hate that they push that on you about getting them. My kids have the waiver for the next 3 years

I hope your pediatrician doesn't force it on you.  We are the parent and should be able to choose for our own child.  I have known of some who have done the delayed vaccination, and they never had an issue with their doctor.  It may help just to let your doctor speak what they think (as long as more of a discussion versus them becoming forceful and confrontational) just so they feel like they gave you information?  Just an idea.  Good luck!
