Hi everyone! I am late to the party in a number of ways. About a little over 2 years ago I started doing extensive research on vaccines. By the end of the year and after both of my children were very sick and now my daughter has diagnosed sensory processing and auditory processing disorders I decided to stop all vaccinations.
We see a holistic pediatrician in a neighboring town and he said he stopped vaccination in his kids after the whole polio scare when all of those kids died in the 90's.
I am taking my daughter in to see him on Tuesday. While in preschool my daughter has had a medical exemption from him. It is a jewish preschool and they have been great about it. But now I look at the physical exam form for the state of Virginia and you have to check off which vaccine they have a medical exemption for. Reading all over the internet I have read that medical exemption is harder to obtain against all vaccines. I have also read that religious exemption is better in some people's minds.
I am so confused on what to do. My objective is to not have any vaccines for the rest of my 2 kids lives. They also have 1st cousins with autism, sensory processing among other problems and all of them are vaccinated.
We are jewish so I don't even know how I would make the argument for not vaccinating.
I am scared that I will mess this up with her registration.
Thanks for listening to a mommy freak out!
