      As a Pediatrician it is my job to provide as much information to the parents to comfort them when making a decision on getting vaccinations for their children. There are several vaccinations that I definitely recommend to the parents and others like the controversial MMR vaccine linked to Autism that they do more reading up on if they want. In the end it is the parents decision..
      you are definitely different from the pediatricians where we live!
      they try to push vaccines that aren't even required by the schools

      one lectured me for maybe half an hour because we wanted to do vaccines one at a time
      she told me "I had the luxury" to do that only because our area had a high vaccine percentage rate
      she even wrote me up on the school medical form, that we were going against protocol or something like that
