Pardon the Trump'ism, but I think we can say safely to this practice, "You're FIRED!"
Imaging charging $20 to a family because they say "no" to a vaccine? Bergen West Pediatric Center is doing just that. How much money do they lose when they don't sell the vaccines that Merck and Insurance companies demand? The rationale is nonsense. Records are already pulled and ready. Verify vaccine? What does that mean? They have the lineup ready for each visit. Voila. Verified. Put them away. Assess the patient? Isn't that the point of the visit ANYWAY? Patient needs clearly do not come first. There are reasons whereby a parent says "no" to a vaccine including that day's health status, bona fide exemption rights and that basic America tenet called FREEDOM.
From their website, "we are currently accepting new patients." Indeed.
