Well it's that time again when the public health nurses make their rounds to the school to vaccinate the grade 6 students for Meningococcal C, Hepatitis B, Chicken pox and give the HPVaccine. I have signed the forms declining all shots but up until now we haven't had to discuss/explain that we are not vaxed. It just hasn't come up, but now it will. I was hoping to not draw attention to this as I am not sure how the other kids (or the other parents)will treat my dd if she is the only unvaxed one.
Should I keep her home from school, talk to the teacher about excusing her to the library or something, or just let it be while the other kids are receiving all their shots? How have these school vaccine days played out for you? Were their any problems with peers or parents? Please share your experiences. Maybe I am just getting anxious over something that will completely blow over.
