It should be noted that vaccination is not REQUIRED in NC. You may file a waiver for school purposes. You will not be advised of this in the hospital or your doctors office. I chose to delay vaccination at the birth of my child. In the hospital a nurse, nurses-aid, and the pediatrician stated that I must vaccinate because it was the law. I had spent many months researching vaccination and was aware of the truth of the law. At my daughters 2-week checkup a pediatrician told me if I was not ready to vaccinate by our next appointment, not to bother returning to her practice. I didn't return to that office, and wouldn't have even if I had decided to vaccinate. A medical professional should realize that the patient (or guardian) has the right to make an informed decision. I found it interesting that at the birth of my second child only 16 months later - the hospital was delaying the same "routine" vaccinations. My children are 8 & 9 now. They have not suffered any illness that would have been prevented by vaccination. They rarely have a cold and have never had an ear infection. Neither have ever had to see a doctor due to illness. Maybe we are lucky - or maybe there is something to the vaccination debate.
