hi! i used to post here a long time ago. so long ago in fact that i can't remember my old user name and password :-(
anyway! i have to just talk this out with some like minded people because i'm torn on what to do.
i have some major transitioning going on in my life right now. i have several children that will start back at public school this year after being homeschooled. this is not MY decision, but my stbxh's demand via our legal stuff. he asked via email last night if they were going to be vaccinated up to date to enroll in school.
i hadn't planned on it. i was going to just keep the religious exemption.
the catch up schedule for my kids' ages isn't horrible. and the minimum requirements for my state aren't either. but, there are still some that i don't feel are necessary at all. i don't think i can pick the ones i want and leave the ones i don't. i don't think i can do a half religious exemption, LOL!!
basically, the minimum is dtap, hep b, mmr, polio, chicken pox. i am against hep b, there is no need for it at their ages. there is no real threat for dtap because they are all too old. i would be willing to do mmr, polio and chicken pox ( only because we cannot find ANYONE that has it! we thought we did and were soooo excited, but turns out it was just a rash :-()
sooooooo i guess what i am wondering is, do i just keep with the religious exemption until he makes a legal stink? or do it say "ok." because i can space them out. i MIGHT be able to say no to at least hep b. some of them they only need like ONE shot, not 3-4. i always said that i would revisit the schedule when the kids hit 7 IF they were public school........
if you have an opinion at all, please feel free to share it :-)
