I HATE when Drs use scare tactics to make patients do what they say. They are not the boss of every patient, they are there as a resource and to help when needed/asked.

That is COMPLETE and UTTER bullsh!t. I would likely have said so right to his face. What a jerk.
I should have asked about their vaccinated child mortality rate. I can never think of these things in the moment!

And yes, the more I think about it, the more absurd his recommendations seem. I really like the guy otherwise, and at least he didn't call me stupid!

Also, when they get nearer 2 years old, the blood-brain barrier is better established, which can help with reactions.
I would really like to know more about this. I have never heard this before. I wish you knew which vaccine it was!
