I've just been notified by my childrens' doctor that she will no longer
see them because I've refused to have them vaccinated. How do I go about
finding another pediatrician, and how do I deal with the topic when it
comes up again?
I have been looking for a pediatrician that will see my son (6 months
old) so that we can have someone to call in case of an emergency. However,
when we call and they discover that we are not vaccinating they refuse
to see us. Is there a directory of open minded individuals or am I going
to have to continue this hit and miss route? I am very confident and educated
-- I can take care of most of my son's health care needs, but again, if
something serious were to occur that required hospitalization I would
like to have someone to contact directly rather than just calling 911.
I'm wondering if there is a list of doctors in my area that you could
recommend to care for my 15 month old daughter. We live in Haverhill,
MA. The pediatrician that has been seeing her will no longer see her since
I refused to have her vaccinated last week. I would appreciate any assistance
you could provide.
I live in Columbus, OH and have a 3 month old daughter. At her 2 month
checkup, I refused to have her vaccinated, and this was not received very
well by her pediatrician. I don't want to feel this pressure every time
I go to the doctor, however, I already know of several other pediatricians
in the area that will not accept children who are not vaccinated. I wonder
if you could recommend any doctors in the area who are a little more sympathetic
to anti-immunization. I am realistic enough to know that these doctors
are few and far between. Thank you for any help.
I live in Carmel, NY and am looking for a pediatrician in my area. Do
you know of any that are supportive of parents who choose not to vaccinate?
I appreciate your website. I do not want to have my 6 1/2 month old baby
immunized. I would like to find a doctor that will not give me a hard
time every time I take my baby in for a check up. Is there any way you
can help me find a doctor in the Memphis area that won't pressure me about
I was wondering if you had any listings of pediatricians who would allow
parents to make the decision not to vaccinate their children? My wife
and I just became parents and we are finding it extremely difficult to
find a pediatrician who will treat our daughter They say they will not
take our daughter on if she won't receive vaccinations. I was wondering
if you could help us out in any way?
Thank you for providing such a knowledgeable webpage. I have decided not
to immunize my son and have many books that back me in this decision.
Unfortunately, I am having a hard time finding a pediatrician that will
back my decision. What suggestions do you have for my sort of situation?
Is there a list of supporting pediatricians somewhere or am I on my own
with this? There have been some measle cases reported here so I want someone
who won't shake their finger at me if my son gets sick. I would appreciate
any help you could provide. Thank you very much.
We are trying to find a pediatrician who won't think we are crazy for
not wanting our little girl vaccinated. Do you have any info on a doctor
in our area who might be open-minded when it comes to vaccination? We
live in Morgan Hill CA near San Jose. Thanks.
I recently moved to Montville, New Jersey from California. I had a pediatrician
for my children in California whose point of view was that the Hepatitis
B shot was unnecessary and also that the second MMR would be better given
at age 11. Do you have any suggestions on physicians in this area (Northeastern
New Jersey) who might work with me on this?
I just discovered this site today. And as fate would have it, my son is
due in for his 18 month check up and booster shots. I've been concerned
about the safety and effectiveness of immunizations for some time now.
I just don't know what to do. My pediatrician is very, VERY much in support
of immunizations. Where can I find a list of pediatricians and healthcare
providers in my area that support parents who choose NOT to immunize?
(There probably aren't any!) Please help. Thanks so much.
We need a listing of pediatricians who would be willing to see children
who aren't immunized and who won't be. As a new parent, this has become
a frustrating endeavor, and quite frankly, not one that many parents will
take on. Can you help?
I am trying to find a holistic pediatrician and am finding it very difficult.
If one doesn't believe in vaccinations, do you just not go to the doctor
and get lots of books and treat your kid yourself? Please help me!
Hi, thanks for all the great work. I'm wondering if you can help me find
a pediatrician/doctor in my area that would share similar beliefs and
support non-vaccination. A few doctors I have tried do not wish to keep
my son as a patient, and likewise, I don't wish to use them. I live in
Waterbury, Connecticut. Any resources or connections you could offer would
be appreciated. By the way, my 16 month old son has not been sick once.
I attribute this to nursing, healthy diet and lack of vaccinations. Thanks
for your assistance.
I just saw a new pediatrician today and was told that he was uncomfortable
not immunizing against most things except polio and chickenpox. I am finding
that there is little support for my non-immunization beliefs. Do you know
of any organizations or support groups that have local chapters for parents
who don't vaccinate? This doctor looked at me as if I were a radical nut
case. It is just so hard. Thank you.
