However, I'm concerned about the stricter laws and regs in WV. They've really been cracking down, suspending or expelling kids for not having every single shot including boosters. This is an excerpt from State code 16-3-4: Any parent or guardian who refuses to permit his or her child to be immunized against diphtheria, polio, rubeola, rubella, tetanus and whooping cough, who cannot give satisfactory proof that the child or person has been immunized against diphtheria, polio, rubeola, rubella, tetanus and whooping cough previously, or a certificate from a reputable physician showing that immunization for any or all is impossible or improper, or sufficient reason why any or all immunizations should not be done, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and except as herein otherwise provided, shall, upon conviction, be punished by a fine of not less than ten nor more than fifty dollars for each offense. (re.dic.u.lous)
Now I do currently homeschool, so I'm not really woreied about attendance, but the wording says "school aged" children and it has been clarified by offiials that they mean that to include homeschoolers. No citation, sorry. Basically, I'm wondering if others out there have info about this. Are they actually going after homeschoolers or would I be safe? Wondering if I have to rule out WV for housing options.
Btw, both sets of grandparents and our Dr are supportive/respectful so no worries about "calls" there.
