VAXBaby 03: How to decline vaccines if you are pregnant

If the ingredients in the TDaP and flu shots don’t sit well with you, or if the fact they’ve never been safety tested in pregnant women and weren’t even recommended until recently makes you uncomfortable, you can decline these shots. I want to give you a few pointers about how to do this so nobody’s feelings get hurt and everyone is happy.

It’s a shame this video is even necessary. In a perfect world, your Ob-Gyn and their nurses would respect your decisions and not give you any trouble. Unfortunately, some may offer resistance. As you know, vaccines are a contentious topic and many doctors and nurse’s feelings get hurt when you question their advice. Some even become aggressive or downright mean when questioning your decision.
