Note from VaxTruth: Indiana law provides for both medical and religious exemptions from vaccines. It is your legal right as a parent to make medical decisions for your child. No physician has the right to threaten you or to vaccinate your child without your permission. Please visit the National Vaccine Information Center for more information by clicking this link to the Indiana legal statute.

However, we would like to know just how pervasive this problem is, and if others may have encountered similar treatment from the same doctor or in the same practice.
