First time I've been harassed over not vaccinating
My 17 month old fell off of our playset on her arm and was favoring it. Poor thing fractured her wrist :( We took her to the ER in a smaller size town nearby since we knew it wouldn't be a long wait. The nurse asked if Grace had any vaccines and I said no.
The Dr comes in and talks about her arm and what they are going to do. He leaves the room and comes back a few minutes later. Apparently he saw that she wasn't vaccinated. So he asks if all of my kids are not vaccinated. Then he proceeds to tell us that we need to be really, really careful. If they get sick at all we are to take them to the children's hospital because they will have more information on various diseases. He says "you know your kids are at risk for all of those diseases they used to get in the old days." By this point I was like wow really you came all of the way back in here to tell me this. I didn't mean to but I kind of busted out laughing and said "You mean the ones that don't really exist anymore?" He asked does your pediatrician know this and they're ok with it? I said yes they know and we are educated on vaccines. Then we just smiled and nodded. I couldn't even bring myself to say anything else just because there is no point. I just found it crazy that he wasted his time coming in there to "educate" me on vaccines and told me to take them to the hospital if they just get a runny nose, fever, or start throwing up!!! HAHAHA!
That is really the first time any medical professionals have really said much more than a few sentences. It was pretty funny! I never argue I just refuse to discuss it. One of our pedis is super cool about it and just asks if we have read up on it. Then our other one will try to discuss it and I just tell her there is really no point and we will vaccinate one day if we decide to (which we won't). They are really the only pedis around who won't kick you out or harrass you.
If you don't vaccinate or selectively/delay vaccinate do you ever have anyone say anything to you?
