Also I am very concerned that I am claiming a religious exemption although we are really not particularly religious. I really don't like lying. We based our decision not to vaccinate on our belief that vaccinating young children is dangerous, especially for our children who may be predisposed to a chemical sensitivity, judging from their father's health issues (my pediatrician does not believe there is enough evidence for a medical exemption).
We moved here recently from another state that accepted philosophical exemptions, I just figured we would go that route, but now here we are in MA. Does anyone else go through this? Are there a lot of private schools that don't accept unvaxed children or perhaps is this letter really just for liability purposes and they don't really care as long as the paperwork is filed correctly?
This is a lonely situation for me. Any insight or encouragement will be greatly appreciated!
