My older two children attend a state VA and I'm in the process of tranferring them to a different state VA. Their current VA (AZVA) did not request vaccination records but the new one does require them. Odd as both are publicly funded and consider AZ public schools.
My older children were vaccinated fully (or so I thought) and I submitted their records expecting no issues but received a response that one is missing one dose of Tdap, the other two doses of Tdap and that both need two doses of MCV. Our former pedi. (who passed away a few months ago, so I can't discuss this with him) never mentioned there were AZ requirements that my older kids technically "need." He also knew we were delaying vax for the younger kids and maybe assumed we weren't interested in vaxing the older ones. I never thought to look up AZ's vaccine requirements on my own for the older kids b/c when we left CA they were current and no additional vax were required there at the time.
My first reaction to the school's rejection of their vax records was to simply submit an exemption form (personal exemptions are allowable in AZ) so that I could at least research these new shots and decide whether or not we want them. The Statement of Exemption from the school, however, requires me to attach an explanation and in researching how to word that, I came across some information stating that if I do not word it exactly correctly, I can be accused of neglect based on not vaccinating!
Now I feel like I should just get the additional vaccines and not rock the boat, but of course I also feel like it would be wrong to vaccinate solely due to fear or external pressure. FWIW, we do vaccinate our youngest two children selectively and we only administer one vaccine at a time. To get the older kids caught up and registered in the new school expeditiously, we'd have to allow them to have the Tdap and MCV at one visit.
