It depends on your ped.  My old one tried making me sign one that made me sound like I was giving my kids a death sentence....  My new one said I do not need to sign anything.

Don't sign anything! I'm guesing if you dont they  can refuse to be your doctor but so be it, go find a new one! That is what I will do if I come across any problems.

We go to a military medical facility and they wanted us to sign the AAP's but I refused.

My pedi just made me sign a form saying that she talked to me about the risks and benefits of vaccines and how I still decided to not vaccinate my children. It was to protect her incase my children got a preventable sickness. Wasn't a big deal she nicely asked me if I would read it and sign it.

I work where my son's go and was not asked to sign anything and if i was I would throw it out.I learned from this group early on to never sign anything for IF something happened to your child you could be held accountable for you KNEW what could happen w/o getting vaxed (yeah let's talk about what happens when you are people) and your kids could be taken away. Hope I explained that clearly

For all of its proven PUBLIC health benefits, breastfeeding is a PERSONAL DECISION -- shooting your kid full of toxins, though, is a "social responsibility."

Not directly. In directly yes they will if they want to. I have the paper that is widely used and recommended and if you read it carefully it puts all blame on you should something happen to your child as a result of *In their eyes* Not vaxxing. There is a form you can use to substitute that one in addition to an exemtion however if they do not accept it and you refuse to sign it they can refuse to see you.  I have had this happen before, but no big deal just find a Dr. who is compliant.
