I am one mom who has pretty much been sheilding my kids from unnecessary vaccinations.
So I have not been taking my( to be) 6 month old to the peditrician lately because they want to vaccinate. This is all the well check ups really are. I am against and wish to be respected for that and want no harm to my family because of my choice. I already expressed concern with the doctor. By the way my baby is healthy and coming along just fine. Blessed that he doesn't need the close care of a doctor. Theres really not mych to do except go when he really has to. BTW, I am not a new mom,a mother of 9,I am experienced with children and rarely have they been sick even with colds.
Apparently, because the peditrician isn't seeing my child for vaccination,he decides to have his nurse compose a letter.
We have noticed --------------has not been seen yet at our office for his/her well child visit. We urge you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
Compliance with appointments is very important to maintain health and ensure optimal care,failure to do so may be detrimental to your child's health and well being
Public aid recipients are required to comply with scheduled visits to maintain benefits.
What do you feel about this letter?
How would you handle this or would you?
Is what the nurse saying have any truth,any law to back this statement up? or just a tactic to put fear in the alleged ignorant misinformed parents?
