Vaccine Awareness & Education
Hi everyone! This is my first post in this community. My daughter is 9 weeks old and tomorrow is her 2 month well baby check up. She will NOT be getting any vaccinations at this appointment and I have no idea how her doctor will react. I know that some doctors will refuse to treat children that aren't vaccinated, but if I have to find another doctor then I will. I haven't been able to find out much about the laws in my state regarding delaying or not vaccinating other than the fact that the only exemptions they will allow for non-vaxed kids in school is medical (permission from doctor) or religious. Philosophical exemptions are not allowed. At this point I'm not worried about any of that because I have no plans on putting my daughter in day care any time soon, but I just want to make sure that there is no law compelling me to vaccinate her right now AND I want to make sure DSS isn't going to show up at my door and try to take her away from me or something crazy like that.|
Has anyone had any experience with delaying vaccinations in MA? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!
