While I am still trying to decide what to do about vaccinating my children anymore or not, my children's peditrician told me today that he will fully support my decision and wont try to talk me into vaccinating. He said he would sign waivers for my kids to get into school if I needed. He even said that he dosn't agree with the varicella vaccine b/c it doesn't give lifelong immunity, and that it was only invented to keep parents at work, not because it is a life threating disease. So I guess I'm lucky to have a doctor like that.

Why can't all doctors be that supportive.

I have to say that mine was supportive too.  She said if your uncomfortable, then we won't do the vaccine.  What a relief that was.  I'm sorry to hear others having such a hard time, but there are supportive doctors out there.  I don't know if it matters that mine is a family doctor and a DO at that, but I love her and hope I never have to change.

Mine is a family practice doctor too, but he admitted to me that he was Libertarian when it came to things of this nature.

Congrats! I'm really happy for you that you didn't have to go through some of the things other parents have.
