My husband and I have recently decided we dont want to vaccinate our three children. We did alot of research and dont feel comfortable having our children receive them. We had a wic appt today in which we attended a class that was suppose to have the full hour filled with information about vaccinations but only spent the first 5 minutes discussing it but only to tell us (us and a few other sets of parents) that if we came back for our youngest son's 9 month wic appt and he wasnt fully vaccinated, they were going to call social services on us for neglecting and abusing our child. This really doesnt seem right to me and i was wondering if anyone else has ever heard of this happening or has had this happen to them. I was also wondering if anyone knows anything about how to get around vaccinating in Puerto Rico (this is where we live).
was threatened to have social services called for non vaxing-help!!!

That WIC office is breaking federal law.
"Immunization records and/or an infant/child’s immunization status are in no way tied to the receipt of WIC benefits."
For the school vaccine requirements, you can get a religious exemption.
