Re: Anti, selective and delayed vaxr's come in please

We selectively and delay vax. We just switched insurance and had to pick from a list of in-network providers. The one I chose initially sounded good online, but was the same. I knew I should have chosen a family practitioner rather than a peds office, but their website made me think they were more natural minded. Anyway, my lectures and attitude came mostly from the nurse who made it sound as if my family would be promptly escorted out if I didn't consent to all vaccinations. We won't be going back and before I choose another office I will call ahead and make sure they are okay with delayed/selective vaccines and save myself the annoyance (and co-pay!).

We don't vaccinate at all. I live in Canada, though, so there is no need to go through hoops in order to not vaccinate. However, if I were in the States, I would have no problem claiming a religious exemption even though we're not religious. It's just a means to do what you should have the right to do anyway!

Re: Anti, selective and delayed vaxr's come in please

It makes me really sad/mad whenever a dr treats a mom like this. You aren't saying no to all vaccines . . . just wanting to delay or do a modified schedule. I was really really nervous when I took my DD in for her first ped appt because I knew this issue was going to come up. To make things harder, my DH feels strongly about getting our DD vaccinated. I, on the other hand, would keep her from getting any vaccinations because I don't like the concept behind it all. I ended up compromising with a delayed schedule. What I am most worried about is side-effects so she actually did get her hep B but I'm delaying the DTap at least until she is 6 months. Everyone's different and lots of people have strong opinions on both sides. Do what you feel is the best for your kids.

I just wanted to say that in Canada they don't do Heb B shot until grade 7 so I hardly think your 5 year old would need it (unless you were going overseas to a more 3rd world area or have family from other countries coming to visit often)
