To the vehemently passionate pro vaxxers there will never be (IMHO) a "good enough" reason put forward by non vaxxers.
I vax my kids - my choice, I respect other parents choices even if I wouldn't make that choice myself.
Live and let live hubbers - or get your cranky pants on in a debate it thread.
P.S I can just see someone saying well why respond?? Well #1 most people who ask these questions dont know the above so more confident members try to support them #2 because I am bloody sick of people feeling like they have a right to question my parenting choices #3 because some people genuinely ask polite questions and I don't mind answering them.

I think the DT vax is the standard vax for that sort of exposure. I know when I have previously been jabbed or cut by anything metal my GO whips out the DT vax as the go to. But then, I'm an adult, so it may be different for a kid? IDK?
I would have been cranky that they had told me the incorrect information. Like others have suggested, I would contact the patient liaison section of the hospital and lodge a complaint.
Whether one is pro or anti vax, is not really relevant to the issue of being told incorrect information by the staff treating your child.
Ok so this thread as clearly gone off topic.
I appreciate all your responses...before it went off topic. I put this in the 'pro non-vax section as i didnt want it to start a debate...i know better than that on the hub
I wanted to know if i had a right to mention this to the hospital...i dont want to start a big drama and im not extremely upset, but i felt like something should be said.
Maybe they are unaware that this is an issue. Maybe the nurse/s havent been informed. I would hate for it to happen again and have a bad outcome...a vax being given to a child who parents havent vaxed because their child had a reaction or something. Not once did they ask me WHY my child's vaxs werent up to date. They just asked 'are her immunisations up to date?'. I said 'no' and that was all that was said. No questions about WHY or did she have a reaction to one?
I just feel like i wasnt given all the information and i feel like thats not ok. Like i say, im not going to go to court or the media or anything i just feel like i should mention it.
How would i go about that? Call, email, write?
