Religious exemption in Catholic Church schools???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
A Charlotte, NC, parent is trying to get the local Catholic Church to recognize NC's religious exemption to vaccines. If you or someone you know has tried going to Catholic school with vaccination exemptions, I'd love to hear how it was resolved.

Thanks, Pat

It'll depend on the school. Some Catholic schools accept exemptions and some don't. The simplest thing would be to call the admissions office and ask of they accept exemptions. If they do, follow the protocol for your state.

Apparently, the local Catholic school *doesn't* accept a religious exemption. But, I'm wondering if there is a "higher up" within the Catholic Church which could influence this otherwise.


Thanks, Pat

Probably not. The Church, in general, accepts immunization as a good and necessary thing. In the case of vaxes cultured on aborted fetal cells they feel that 1) the greater good basically outweighs the evil; and 2) pharma should make "ethical alternatives" to these vaccines available in the US.

Thanks, I'm hoping someone has had a more promising experience.

This topic has been brought up a few times....

I would tell your friend to DIG DEEP, and find out if the catholic school accepts federal funding for lunch programs. If so, they are breaking the law. Period.

There is an organization, that fights this very topic. Hmm. Can't think of their name-something like Child of God for Life???? Surely someone has a clue....

Keep us updated!! I have a friend who lurks here, and is in the same boat-as many,many others are.
