All the vaccines on the NIP are free from the government.
Knowing the government it's probably the cheapest manufacturer that they use!
GP's have nothing to do with the choice of pharma company.
I think that writing is best. You can take your time and clearly lay out your points without forgetting anything. They should reply in writing as well and you can take your time reading that and making sure that they've addressed your concerns and not feeling later that you've been fobbed off.
OP, yeah look, I'd probably be a bit miffed. But not enough to complain. However I am one of those annoying delayed/selective vaxxers that know what vaccine combinations there are and I tend to be very specific with the wording of my questions before I consent to anything. I'm still very sorry this happened to you and your child, and it shouldn't have happened.
@MilkingMaid I understand totally where you are coming from, I've been harrssed over the years too about this issue. But I've also had some respectful conversations, including with @redlipsandpearls

When did this become the Debate It section? It is reasonable to ask questions in order to understand another's pov but this is not the section or thread for it Not to mention the posts that are plainly just argumentative. The whole thread has become a vax debate rather than focusing on the op's actual issue of informed consent. Bit sad really. And in answer to the op, yes, I would be annoyed.
I would call the hospital switch and ask to be put through to the patient liaison, let her know you are sending through a complaint and if you can have her email or postal address to do so.
