No... I don't give any vaccines to any children. Very very rarely, a flu vaccine. Why would I be responsible for educating on that? Why, as a parent, when your child was hospitalized for something like an appendectomy or an orthopedic surgery or a pneumonia, would you feel it was appropriate to ask me instead of the nurse that GIVES your child the vaccines? IMO as a PARENT, that's strange. You would know me for 12 hours, you would know your pediatrician's nurse for years.

So, if it is not your job to be educating people on vaccines then you have no business telling people why they should be vaccinating. Regardless of what kind of nurse you are, you should have SOME basic medical knowledge on what should and shouldnt be injected into your body.

Someone in my DD group lives in NY, and doesn't want the eye gunk or vax for her baby either so her midwife asked for the info because she didn't know and she found out that if she doesn't have them administered that child protective services would actually become involved and the midwife would get in trouble for it as well.

So it's okay for uneducated mothers to be educated others on it then? Alrighty :lol: No.

Furthermore, because I don't know if the 3 she's inquiring about are state mandated at birth right now doesn't make me a zombie. You're a moron. And clearly a bit ignorant yourself. Should I read up on it? Of course I should. Maybe you should too. I didn't see you offer a hint of anything useful in here, so really.... still.... :arrow:

IMO its a parents choice to educate them selves. This isnt a vaccine debate, I did my research and made up my mind and was just shocked that my state is going to try to force me to vax...
