A idea that came into my last thread about BM refusing to discuss the HPV vaccine, was that since SS13 is in our state visiting, we just get the shot. I am pretty sure it is a series, even for boys. He will be back this summer and then at Christmas so I am sure we can get it all done.
Have you ever gone against BM for something like this? I know sex is a sensitive subject when it comes to kids. The vaccine is marketed to cancer, but lets be real this is an STD that in some cases leads to cancer. I have my personal opinions about this particualr shot, and am not planning on my bios getting it, just due to the side effects. I am personally not feeling like this is something that SS desperately has to have. BUT if SO wanted to or felt like SS should have, he should be within his rights to do so with joint legal and medical custody. Now, let me say, her reason that she stated to SO for SS13 not getting it, is because she believes he has Elhors Danlos- which he 100% does not. We are going to verify everything at the pediatrician in our state. So if we did this, it would be told to BM along the lines of " I verified with Dr.___ at ABC Peds clinic that SS13 does not have Elhors Danlos and since that was your reason for not having SS vaccinated, I made sure that he was protected from various types of cancer by having this vaccine".
Even if you experience was a flu shot, or chicken pox or whatever- but made a medical move against BM's wishes, please let me know how that went
