Unsure what to think of this.
We are riding on a medical exemption for our vax status, my son does have a ton of medical problems, so our pedi wrote us a letter stating "that he is a 3 y/o with developmental delays and numerous food allergies" as the reasons why we are behind -- it also states what he is missing and that we will be catching him up ASAP...and in the event of a measles/mumps outbreak, he should be excluded (per state regs)...feel free to call her with questions or concerns. We are pretty behind, and we really take things slow, but I/we had a legit reason for his delayed/missing vaxes.
I warned the director of this before we enrolled him to make sure she was comfortable with this, and she said a note from the pedi was fine and that would be considered a "medical exemption"...(I totally played stupid and let her take the lead in how to best handle this --- but knew it had to be fine, I already had the letter).
So, she pulls me aside today saying that bc she reported his vax status to the state, they red flagged her and are now doing an inspection of the preschool. She's in a total panic over his vaxes and is now saying that this letter isn't enough since "the whole autism vax connection isnt true"....but, that's not why we were doing it. Tho he's spectrumish, he's got more medical issues and was sick for about 2.5 years until his adenoids were removed. He does have a ton of food sensitivities, egg being a big one, but never blood tested pos for it. We see a GI for this (amongst other things), who was fine with our delaying vax til we get his gut under control. We've also got a cardiologist, a ENT, a geneticist, a neuromuscular doc and a neuropsych...he's in OT/PT several days a week -- and in the public school system for walk in services -- his preschool is private.
I'm unsure what to do -- I'm going to call our pedi, but honestly, I dont want to provide the state with more than what they've got already. We did have a recent checkup and did give him the dtap, so its not like we arent slowly giving him what we see to be important -- I also provided an updated vax form right after this appointment so they could see that we are going forward.
