Today I received a message from a concerned parent that was fired from her pediatrician for refusing to get vaccinated, and was told they needed to find a new doctor in 30 days or they would be reported to Child Protective Services. This is an outrage.

Dear Dr. xxx,
It has come to our attention that your practice is refusing to see patients if they do not follow the suggested vaccination schedule. In addition we learned that you have made a decision to call Child Protective Services if they do not find another doctor in 30 days. This is discrimination, harassment and bad policy.
I would like to remind you that we do live in a free country and that medical interventions and drugs, including vaccinations are a choice of each individual patient and not law. We understand if it is your policy not to accept patients that do not follow the suggested schedule, but to threaten them is an entirely different and serious issue.
You have made it clear that your message is, if you have a child you must overdose them with medication even if it is not in their best interest. If your patients choose not to comply, they are better off being raised by the state and not their own loving, concerned parents that know what it is their best interest.
If you still feel the need to call CPS on any of your patients that decided to choose an alternative schedule or decline all together we would be happy to join the family with the press and our attorneys along with CPS.
By law, as stated on the CDC website,”Parents must be informed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believes that parents should be fully informed about the risks and benefits of vaccination by talking to a trusted health care provider. By law, parents, guardians, or patients must be given information in writing about the risks and benefits of vaccination before a vaccine is administered. ” A single piece of paper is not informed consent and in many cases is given to parents after their children are injected.
We invite you to learn more about the medicines you are suggesting every child to get. Please visit www.thinktwice.com and get the book The Vaccine Safety Manual with over 900 cited documents from the CDC, medical and scientific journals along with actual personal accounts of vaccine reactions.
