    So we just got SNAP (had Health Master) and we are doing immunizations and are finding non-compliance in a lot of students all over the District. The Supervisor would like us to call to MD's office and clarify the record, and if required, tell them that student will need a booster etc.. Then the MD's office gets hostile with you and ignores your request. Then we have to contact the parent and let them know, and in some cases (with the live vaccines), tell them we have to exclude them from school until it is completed (mind you, this is for all grades). This obviously takes a tremendous amount of time we don't have.

    We want to just send a letter to the parent stating they are non-comp and leave it up to them to contact their MD. I'm tired of being the immunization cop, my name is not stamped on the physical saying everything is up to date.

    Just curious how some of you handle the process.

    Thanks!
