We waived the Hep B only because we delayed it.

Which is understandable. I don't mean to harp on people that don't vax but as a nurse I feel the need to........ :oops:

Eek! Do they have a waiver you can sign? My first got everything at birth, but hasn't had Hep B since (we're delaying). We'll be declining eye goop and Hep B at birth with this one.

So since you're a Nurse, I have a question :lol: :oops:
Is it OK to have a red, painful and very itchy "lump" at an injection site from a steroid shot (from over a month ago)? Will cortisone cream take care of this or what?

Has this person had the steroid shot before? If not- in all honesty, I'd mention it to the doctor. Depending on what the steroid shots are for to begin with, it would suck to be developing an allergy to it :cry: (It's possible that its also just a side effect of the shot as well.)

It's me...I'll call. I noticed the other day I still had a mark and said spot was sore when touched but today it is freaking itching so bad :x

I had no idea I lived in a state that a parent could not refuse.

Not at all- I'm paid just to do my job. I don't get paid by any companies to do any of that. The only vaccinations I am even asked to inquire about are the flu and pneumonia vaccines (those are the only ones we administer when applicable) and when in the case of pediatrics, we just pass on the info to the pediatrician as far as what the parents wishes are if the pediatrician doesn't have the records.

My background is working in emergency medicine. Im not anti vaccines, but for me and personal situation I dont want my newb to be vaccinated after birth.



From what I read, it said to get legal advice to try and refuse since I live in NY. Which days out from birth isnt an option...Was just interested to see if anyone had dealt with this in NY to give me some insight.

Gotcha. When my youngest was born 3 years ago in NY, they did ask if he would be receiving them (he did). I'm not an L&D nurse but I should probably still know the law :oops: I don't know if it's changed. Also, not in NY now.
