I believe it's from Chicago University. They ask about children in your household between the ages of 12m and 3y.

I had looked up the number online because it showed up on our caller ID. I gladly participated in the survey just for the opportunity to be a voice against the stereotype of those who aren't getting their dc vaccinated. In the end they wanted to get ds's full name and I wouldn't give it. They assured me only the CDC and federal government would have access to the information... um, exactly!

So if you got the call; I think they've been going on for a long time- did you respond? How did it go for you?

The bolded just cracked me right up! Seriously, we don't trust your vaccines so what makes you think we'd trust you with personal information?

I live in Canada but I would love to be part of that

Yeah, exactly. The guy asked me three times for ds's full name. I flat out told him "I don't vaccinate and I don't feel comfortable giving the government my name".

I got a follow-up call yesterday and the first thing the woman asked (again three times) was for ds's full name. I ended up yelling at her. I know she's only reading a script and they're probably told to push for that info. She went on then with a bunch of questions about which vaccines I'd refused and what influenced my decision not to vaccinate. I still felt it was worth my time.

I wouldnt have given out my childs name either! Thats weird that they keep pushing for it. How does the childs name effect the survey in any way?? I would love to participate too but no phone call here either.

I'd participate, too. But, I also wouldn't give my childs name. There is no reason for them to need it for a survey....It seems as if they are on a fishing expedition!

The first surveyor kept saying "sometimes we might forget a vaccination our child has had...". They want to contact the child's doctor and get the vax record. That's way too much invasion of my privacy!
