    She was not in direct risk of contracting diphtheria and was vaccinated for it against my will.

    if she were at risk of, or contracted diphtheria would you consent to a diphtheria vac then? You say you're happy for the tetanus because it directly treated your DD, so that's why I'm asking about the diphtheria scenario.

    And you don't believe it? They have bills to pay, surgeries to rent, staff to pay - how else do you think they make money? They have a business to run.
    Pharmaceutical companies outbid each other for business just (for example)like coke and pepsi or the like. They're given bonuses and gifts to push products/scripts/vaxxes.
    Dr's aren't immune (pardon the pun) to the big dollar wheel that turns the rest of the world.

    Shocks me that people think its not true...

    As the partner of a doctor I would love to know where all this money is going. It certainly isn't going to him! He who is doing overtime today and doesn't get paid for it.....oh but wait that's right he is getting bonuses and gifts.

    I believe the OPs child was in a hospital and the doctors and nurses were probably being paid by the health department of her state.

    OP I do think that you should have been given the complete list of diseases the vaccination covers. I hope your DD is recovering fast.

    I know not *all* doctors are like that, but I also know a couple of pharma drug salespeople too..
    Heck, I've seen a few doctors who couldn't answer my questions or help with an issue I'd had - and suffered through a misdiagnosis, allergic reactions and verbal abuse from an obstetrician as well - I know they're people too..

    I thought they cut the Practitioner incentive payments for vaccines a few years ago?

    I would treat my child for a disease yes! Obviously!
    Is my child contracted diphtheria the VAX would no longer be needed.

    Because then its needed.

    If circumstances dictate that my boys need certain vaxxes, which has happened twice now, then I get the vaxxes done. Simple. No arguing my position with a GP needed.
    What medical professionals do you speak to then?

    ETA I'm not asking in an argumentative way, just curious.

    Could somebody please explain in simple english to me;

    If vaxxed people can spread VPDs along with non-vaxxed people, how does an immunisation status have any bearing or effect on others?

    I see posts about how selfish not vaxxing is but genuinely don't understand how?
