fired by the pediatrician
disclaimer: I am not looking for advice or criticism regarding my vision on immunization.
OK, so I talked to the doc to give my daughter only certain vaccines one month apart, one at a time, and PCV was one of them. After giving her DTaP at 2 mo, HiB at 3 mo, at her 4 month appointment I told the doc I would rather not take the risk with PCV, at least not right now when she's still too young and we do not take her to daycare...explained my reasoning and asked her to give her the next vaccine on the list which was Polio (only because we intend to travel overseas soon). The pediatrician told me PCV is required in the CSHP practice, and if I do not give it to my daughter to start looking for another pediatrician. When she realized I wouldn't give in to her threats, and after telling her that I had no problem looking for another pediatrician, she started telling me that it will be very difficult to find a doctor that will agree with my immunization schedule...What in the world is wrong with these doctors??
When people refuse blood transfusion for religious reasons, doctors find a way to treat them, but when I refuse a certain shot for my daughter, I am told to go another doctor. I am so fed up to be told what to do by these doctors that insist on immunization but refuse to take responsibility if something goes wrong because of it.
