I am seriously going to look for another peditrican- mostly for the fact that I refused to give my child certain shots- and I was pushed by the dr and the nurses. I decided...to space my 4 month olds shots out. I personally DO NOT see the need for her to have the rotavirus- parents...THEY WILL GET IT NO MATTER WHAT. its a fact. OR 2 MENIGITUS shots???????????? at once? what in the hell. I suffered from Menigitus as a 4 year old and in the end it left me with a hearing loss, but I dont see the need to pump my daughter full of all these vaccines at once and NOT even KNOWING if she is allergic...

Basically my question is-

Arent there any Peditricans out there who are OLD school. Who believe or support you and possibly stick with methods that we had a kids?

When we were kids 1970-1985- we were only given 23 shots today our kids have 48...what in the HELL is that???

I know several in my area that not only support it, but many of those don't vaccinate or selectively vaccinate their own.


Where are you located?
