This brings up the eternal question of "Why did they choose to practice medicine?" For the MD's that choose to not stock vaccines for their patient's health, the answer if obviously the money. For the money, they will allow their patients to be at risk. I work in the health care field and I see physicians like this everyday.

Think you're missing the point here a little. If they're not breaking even then they won't stay in business. Yes doctors provide a service but unless the start getting subsidized for vaccines that they're losing money on it makes perfect sense. Can you say socialized medicine?

A reasonable physician would tell their patients honestly that they either have to pay extra for vaccine or get it done somewhere else.If its a life or death issue with no solution then I would for sure do all that I can regardless of cost. Would you work for free for the rest of your life as a Nurse? Forget about out of pocket cost, just work for free as a nurse for lets say 3 months. Lets see why you became nurse. You wouldn't. But again its a invalid scale to test motivation to chose such a noble profession. You have to have a balance in everything. If I have money I can help people more than lets say I have no money. I hope we will start respecting what we do as a health care professionals because we have to work together everyday to save lives not just making money.
