I am not Vaccinating my child Because of research I have done on them and the fact that my family has gotten very sick from them one of my sisters even died from them but was luckily saved.



My question is How do I get passed vaccinations when it comes to sending my child to school?

in most states you need to sign an opt out form.



All I have to say, as the mother of an Autistic child is: Do some more research, in the recent weeks the doctors who did the original studies linking Autism to Vaccines have all dismissed their own findings. This has been all over the international media, but has gotten very little coverage in the American Media. Please note; Thermidasol, the mercury based preservative originally reported as the cause of the increased Autism rate, was removed from vaccines in 2001. The only vaccine where it remains is the muli-dose vials of the Influenza vaccine, which isn't commonly given to children.



Additionally, don't be surprised when your child comes home with what you thought were irradicated childhood diseases. The common Measles, mumps, and rubella are all back. These vaccines only work when the masses are all vaccinated, and the assumption that my child's immunities will protect yours is FALSE. Look at the most recent stats. Those 3 are back in full force, especially in communities with larger immigrant populations.



Ultimately, do what you want, but failure to vaccinate in my opinion will cause more harm than good. Not only to your child, but those around him. All I say is, do more research, use resources other than American.

There is no law that says u have to get ur child vaccinated. Its ur choice. When the child gets ready to go to school u may have problems. I would call the schools now and ask them what the policy is if u don't get ur child vaccinated.so u know what ur battle will be. Beware the drs will try to talk u into it. I have 4 boys and i did get them vaccinated but if i could change it now I wouldn't of. They r all healthy and the shots didnt hurt them. But everyone is different

i think the easiest way to get around vaccinations is to say it is against your religion. no one can argue what you personally believe and no one can deny your child an education. you have extra forms to fill out for school stating that is is against your beliefs. i think the only time you might have a problem is if you want to send your child to a private school, places that are privately funded can deny you for anything. the same thing goes for your doc visits just state that it is against your beliefs/religion, just be prepared every time they are gonna give you the speech that vac are the best and that you are putting your child at risk. hope it helps

No matter what other people say, your child can go to school if they are not vaccinated. It depends what state you are from but in all states you can claim religious reasons and most states you can claim medical or personal reasons.

When my children were in public school I just signed a waiver stating that they didn't have their vaccinations for personal reasons. I was never given any hassle by the school. If they had, I would have stood up for my rights to privacy and told them to mind their own business.

The reason we didn't hear about it is because 25 years ago it wasn't called Autism...there is no scientific proof of vaccines causing autism. Another reason we didn't hear about these things is because we didn't have 274/7 news channels.

I can't ignore those who choose not to have their kids vaccinated because even though your child is healthy & may be able to handle these various diseases my nephew can not. He has a severe immune dificiency & therefore can not recieve these immunizations. If he gets one of these diseases he may not recover & it could possible be fatal for him. It is my business when it affects my family. More children (and adults) die from these diseases around the world then are harmed from the vaccines & that is a fact.

and the debate goes on....
Our children are proof that vaccines are killing them.....think about it for a minute...25 yrs ago how many cases of Autism did you hear about? How many kids in your school had cancer? How many were allergic to peanuts? The sad fact is that vaccines are nothing but money makers for drug companies and doctors. And they really don't care if your child gets hurt,sick or dies from them....It's called job security! They love making new drugs , look at all the ads on TV!.....I do not criticize anyone who allows there children to receive vaccines....please extend the same courtesy to those who refuse them. MANY of us have researched it to the fullest extent! and have good reason for not allowing them. Many of us have stacks upon stacks of papers with reasons for NOT! Yes I can do a lot of research on the opposite side as well and I have and that is the reason that I made the decisions I have made!

I selectively vaccinate my children, For each disease I weigh the benefits and risks of the vaccine. So, Polio, Diptheria, and Tetnus are what they are vaccinated for right now because these diseases, if contracted, could very well kill them. When they are older we'll consider Measles, mumps and rubella (Rubella for sure before they reach childbearing age).



I think instead of just carte Blanche refusing them all you need to educate yourself on each disease and ask yourself could you live with yourself if your child contracted it? Polio is a horrible disease that usually criples or kills and tetnus often kills it's victims. A simple shot that has very little side effects compared to the risk of the actual disease will more than likely prevent your child from every being victim to that disease.



I can't really help you on the exemption - I'm in Canada and here we sign an exemption form stating that if there's an out break in our community of any disease they're not vaccinated for I'll have to pull them out of school. I got a real giggle out of the fact I'll have to pull them for chicken pox - they've had it but I don't have "proof" so if there's chicken pox running rampant they get a little vacation!

I guess I should have worded it better, had them twice as a child vaccinated when it came out then 3 more times. I had cancer when I was 5 and because of my lack of immune system was given the vaccination when it came out. Our daughter is vaccinated because we think the vaccination serves a purpose, and that is to cause more good than harm and keep her safe. Not knocking those who don't vaccinate, you believe what you believe and I believe what I believe.

I have done tons of research on vaccinations. In almost every state except west virginia and mississippi you can get an exempt. I live in WV and there is no one. I was told when it comes time for my children to go to school to go to the board of education and have them give me a refusal of enrollment. It is refusing my child a right to an education and it usually works.

Susan, just a question; how did you get a chicken pox vaccine when it's only been around since 1995? If you had it twice as a child no Dr would've given it to you.

If you look you can find research the opposite of what you believe. Just because your child is healthy & can tolarate the disease does not mean that other kids they come in contact w/ can. Some kids may not be able to get vaccinated due to medical problems & they could possibly die from the disease or a baby that is not fully vaccinated could get really sick. When a child is healthy the benefits of vaccines out weigh the risks. Part of the reason some of these diseases are coming back is because parents are choosing not to vaccinate for no real reason.

FYI~A religious belief is something you feel very strongly in!
Don't be bullied to do something you feel is not right for you!
My children are 13,10 and 3 1/2 yr old twins....never let them have a shot! And they are fine. Oh and by the way I'm 37 and I have only had 1 shot, I had a reaction and the doctor told my mom, they really aren't necessary I believe the will cause more harm to our young then good! God rest his soul! Damn! He was right!
Take care

I went to college in another state which required vaccination records for enrollment there was one that I couldn't find a record for so I had to sign a waiver before being enrolled in class or I could opt to have the vaccine then. I would like to say that despite being given the chicken pox vaccine I have had the chicken pox 5 times, twice as a child and 3 mild times as an adult. Yay me!! lol

When it comes time to register for kindergarten they will give you a form to fill out about vaccines. There should be a spot on it that says something about exempt. Just fill out that portion and return it to the school.

In Canada (which is where I live) it's not required. I think you would have to check with your particular local school district.
I haven't vaccinated my son either. I've done a lot of research and I think within the next couple months we're going to start our son on homeopathic vaccines. They're taken orally and they don't have any of the nasty chemicals, heavy metals, and other gross stuff that they put in regular vaccines. I highly recommend a visit to a naturopath. And ignore Angela. You're going to get a lot of that! It gets pretty tiresome. I'm comfortable with my decision and if you are too, then that's excellent. Good for you for being informed.

Usually, you get to either sign off for medical reasons, religious reasons or personal reasons. We don't vaccinate either. I'm like you where I'm more worried about the reaction vs. sickness. A good example is the chicken pox vaccination. My kids had the chicken pox last winter. My friend's kids got it even though they had the vaccination. Their dr. told them that their kids didn't get it enough (because of the vaccine) for their body to recognize that they had it. Thus, they will probably get it at an older age which is harder. Do your research for yourself. Good resources for a healthy home are at ahealthcafe.com/family. Take care!

Depending where you live the school should be able to provide you with a EXEMPT form. States vary but you can look it up on the web. Be upfront with the school and ask to talk with the nurse....hope this helps.
