There are many moms on here who have been kicked out of their peds office for refusing to vax.

Re: Vaccine Safety Warranty

I do have to sign a paper saying I declined the vaccines. But our pedi is great. She is fine with us not wanting to vax.

But I agree, that would shut them up LOL.

Re: Vaccine Safety Warranty

yeah theyd have to be stupid to actually sign it...but then imo thats what theyre doing by giving the shots, saying that they think theyre perfectly safe.

And perhaps you do not mean to be confrontational... but I can certainly understand where it could come off as being confrontational if you were to wave this in front of a doctor's face. I guess I just don't understand what benefit it will bring--it's not going to change anything from the doctor's standpoint and it's unlikely to really help you either. And in general I am in favor of a lot of "non-standard" health practices, but I guess I just feel like you get more bees with honey, so to speak.
To me, the benefit is not having to stand there and be yelled at by a ped or sign a paper saying I'm harming my child. Instead, I can just say that if you think they're so safe, then sign this document stating what you believe and why. That's what they're asking me to do.
I think parents should have to sign a form in order to get vaccines, stating that they read the pamphlet and ingredients list and that they fully understand the decision, just like with any other 'procedure'.
BTW, please read the AAP waiver. They can come back to bite you if you sign them.

Re: Vaccine Safety Warranty

That's great! Thankfully our ped (who we only see once in a blue moon since we don't do routine checkups) is my cousin and knows that I don't vax and doesn't argue with me about it.
