    I mean I can see how you are annoyed by them not clearly answering your question, but I wouldn't think that there would have been a different outcome.

    BTW, as PP's have pointed out, it's not quite as simple as "treating" a child for whooping cough and diptheria, they are serious diseases that can put your child's health/life at risk. They areuch better being prevented, rather than treated once they occur. I hope you have educated yourself thoroughly about these diseases before deciding to decline the vaccinations.
    I'm not sure if I would have declined the VAX, my point is I wasn't given the choice.

    Why can't a non vaccinator ask a question in the pro-non vaxxing section without it spiralling into this? It's so rude and pretty clear that this choice is not at all given the same respect as other parenting choices.

    Not only do they need a refresher on knowing what they're sticking in your kid - they also need another refresher on what/how/when/why tetanus can occur and be present and when a shot or booster may or may not be required. Jeeeeez.
    I'm gobsmacked on behalf of the OP.
    Because a deep narrow wound is the perfect environment for anaerobic bacteria like tetanus to grow.

    I agree. Regardless of my personal beliefs regarding vax, one of the cardinal rules in giving medication is informed consent. You weren't properly given the information to be able to give it imo

    Exactly. If this was any other parenting choice everyone would be up in arms. Disgusting behaviour in my opinion.

    Exactly this.

    Sorry going to be harsh here.... But if you say you're anti-vac, then why did you allow them to vaccinate your child? It's an honest question.

    I'm am very strongly pro-vax and personally don't understand why people don't vax BUT you have every right to be annoyed. As much as I don't understand your decisions you still have a right to fully informed consent and clearly this was not given. I agree with the other posters - you need to let the hospital know what has happened so they can take the appropriate action to ensure it doesn't happen again.

    No way. They are single minded on the topic. Vax or else. Not much discussion to be had.

    Vaxxes are a parental choice, and I choose to exercise that right. My decision is firm, why would I want an ear bashing by a GP about it?

    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.

    I didn't, my child was in direct risk of contracting tetanus... she stood on a rusty needle...so consented to a treatment for it.
    She was not in direct risk of contracting diphtheria and was vaccinated for it against my will.

    They're paid by the highest bidding vax maker to make sure its their brand in the needle and that you're rolling through their surgery to get that shot.
    Wow...cannot believe you really think that. It saddens me. I will leave now...OP, I very much hope your daughter is recovering well.
