I'm new on this forum. I have two beautiful, healthy dd's, aged 7 and 4, both never vaxxed. I always said I would visit vaccinations as something came up, and I do so much research, that I literally scare myself into not vaccinating. At this point I'm far more afraid of vaccine injury than I am of the diseases themselves. My big problem at this moment is there is a Mumps outbreak in The Lower Mainland (Vancouver, BC). I have been told that if there is a Mumps outbreak in my daughter's school, I will have to remove her from the school for no less than 3 weeks. Now seeing as it's the end of the school year, that's fine. However, last year it was a Measles outbreak in April, and we faced the same issue. My daughter is in French Immersion, and I feel it would be detrimental for her to miss 3 weeks of school because she's not vaxxed....but I feel like that's a bully tactic that I HAVE to get her the MMR vax...the one I'm MOST fearful of. My husband is either way, he supports what I decide...he'd rather I didn't vax, but won't fight me on it. I read in our papers last year that they forced one mother's daughter out of school while the measles outbreak happened, and my heart just broke for her. She rushed her daughter to the dr, got her the MMR shot, and they still told her it was too late, and she had to miss school. I don't want this to happen to my kids. I know it's a small chance that the disease will actually show up in her school...I guess I'm wondering HOW they can tell my kid she can't attend classes when it's her Constitutional right to an education...if it's not LAW here to vaccinate, how can they legally keep her out of school? Thoughts?
