DD's ped is an all or nothing office.....

 I wanted to do a spaced out shot schedule but they said they are an all or nothing office. I plan on getting all of the shots but, I just don't want her to get several shots all at the same time. The nurse said they were all or nothing and the doctor verified I wanted to do a spaced shot schedule and he didn't mention anything. I have to call and make her 2 month appointment in a week or so which is when she would start getting her shots. What do I do?

Go to a different doctors office. I wouldn't have my daughter seeing a doc that didn't respect my parenting decisions.

sounds like you may  need to find another ped.

Thats amazing that they would do that it doesnt make much sense,whats the harm in spacing them out thats what we do.

IDK why they won't space them. Honestly they would be making more money b/c you are coming to the office more so more money there. Each time they have a nurse administer shots more money...

  That's what my doc is to.  I ended up having to get the chicken pox one for my DD even though I am very much against it.  I can't just up and find a new doc. Gotta love military doctors and their policies sometimes.

I would join the educate before you vaccinate group on here. You could go by Dr. Sears' delayed schedule. If you get his vaccine book, it has it in there. I tried to find the schedule online, but I can't.

Most ins. wont pay for the extra visits and the spaced shots. My ins. keeps bugging my dr and calling my home to say that my child is not properly vaxed and wont pay for the visits unless he is sick or a reg well child check up.

I would find a new pediatrician. They are bullying you into vaccines. Why dont you get the vaccine book by doctor sears it tells you everything thats in all the vaccines. My baby is 8 months old and vaccine free. i have 3 kids my oldest is fully vaccinated hes in special ed for being delayed in learning. my daughter is ok because hers were spaced out. Please research it, I promise nothing will happen to your baby
