I enjoy camping. I love to read. I love to dance. I grow rose bushes. (well, I plant them occasionally) I am drinking tea. I have food issues.
NY has a state wide vax data base, so can't keep the info to yourself - docs have to submit.  
In NY you can't selectively vax and use the religious exemption, unless you have special permission from your local school district supervisor.  Here, it wouldn't fly, but in some less conservative areas, it would.  Talk to the office and make an appt to see whoever is in charge, as they have the final say, at least from my exp.  Good luck!
btw - I have had many vaxs since being an adult, because I worked overseas for a few yrs. in Africa.  The vaxs are not fun, and they did have side effects, like sickness - diarrhea, fever and vomiting - but they were directly related to the illness contained in the vax., nothing else.     I think it is certainly possible for a 'vulnerable' individual to negatively respond to a vax as an adult.

soul searching never dull frustrating awe inspiring amusing   My dd is 13, and is full of the stuff that makes our lives incredibly full!  She will lie, and then bat her eyes at me and apologize and ask for permission for the next thing.  She is fearless and guileless, vain and beautiful and kind.  I love her so much it hurts.  We go from best buds to worst enemies, because I refuse to let being her parent stop me from enjoying her, when she isn't needing a...
