Dh and I are currently not vaxing the kids and Hayden will be entering preschool in the fall. Anyone have experience with what needs to be done as far as vaccine exemptions?
Thanks in advance! :

Here is the form required by maryland:
Right below the thick black line there is a place that says religious exemption. All you do is sign and date.
Maryland also has a lead testing requirement.
The form required by Maryland is here:
At the bottom of the box "Certification Information" there is a place to sign for an exemption.
They may give you the form here instead:
There is no place for a waiver here, so I filled it out except for the health care provider part and attached the certification form that included the portion for a waiver.
We didn't have a problem though. I didn't ask if they offered exemptions, I just filled them out. If they are compliant with maryland requirements they have to accept them. Maryland is luckily straightforward with this.
I didn't have any problems with this.
Sorry to hijack this post but now I have a question after reading this (I asked in "Vaccinations" a while back but didn't get too many responses). Now I'm curious as to what y'all think......
My (almost) 5 year old has had all of his vaccinations. He's up to date, except for the 2nd MMR.
The problem? When he was first born, I "didn't know any better" about vaccinations (and honestly didn't even really think about it) but I recently started researching them....
My son is entering kindergarden in the fall and I don't know what to do since he hasn't had the 2nd dose of MMR (which is required)
How do I handle this with the school if I don't want to give him the vax? Do I submit all his vaccinations and then attach a religious exemption to it? I mean, I think it's important for the school to know that he's had all but one shot, right? (I don't want to withhold information from them.) But will they "give me a hard time" about the religious exemption since he's had practically everything else? Or do I just give my son the 2nd MMR???
Again, so sorry to hijack...it just seems like you are a wealth of knowledge and I'm relatively new to all of this.
Anyone have experience using this process in the somewhat Un-crunch-friendly world of Montgomery County? We're in Bethesda; the preschool we're looking at (Bethesda Coop) explicitly states that vaccinations must be up to date. Would they still have to accept the exemption?
