Given you're prepared to vac/treat if your kids get sick anyway?
    I think this is uncalled for.

    Yup^^

    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.

    I dont think you understand how threads go when you mention your a non-vaxxer, it means every pro-vaxxer on the forum who wants too can jump in and question you about it and tell you how selfish and irresponsible you are in the name of "discussing" it.


    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 don't think it is unreasonable to ask people how they came to certain conclusions.
    They are clearly and specifically debate threads. This is not a debate thread, and is not a debate section (however for some reason the mods allow it to run like that, which I object to strenuously!)

    And redlipsandpearls has a long history of baiting non-vaxxers.

    Actually, many of us commented on this thread in support of the OP. The only reason I mentioned my stance on vaxxing at all was because I wanted to be clear on why I said it wouldn't have bothered *me*, but could understand why it bothered the OP.

    Any many took the opportunity to make unnecessary comments and so forth!

    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...
    That is simply not true. I am married to a doctor, we own the business and I organise the finances for it, and I know for a fact he does NOT receive bonuses or gifts from drug companies.

    OP I think they should have given you more info when you asked the question.

    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?
