springfield mo or a town where not vaccinating is unaccepted

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am considering moving back to my hometown to be near family from Portland Oregon. My biggest reservation is about not vaccinating my childern. My daughter LOVES going to school, so I don't think home schooling will be a good option for us. I also fear there will not be a family doctor that will accept this. Please tell me there is Someone is Springfield that also doesn't vax. In Portland it is common practice to refuse vaccines. Our doctor supports our decision and the schools do not give us a hard time. I am afraid to leave this safe bubble, but I really miss our family. I hope someone replies and can give me some advice. Vaccinating is absolutely out of the question. I have a lot of friends there, but I do not know anyone who apposes vaccines. My fingers are crossed...SOS... Non vax families is springding???

I saw that too. But it is kind of discouraging. The docs mentioned were not okay with not vaccinating. Still..i am hopeful.

School won't be a problem, exemptions are allowed there, whether it's common or not.

Gnatty, can you message me your DO's info? We live outside of Springfield and are looking for a delayed/selective vaccine friendly doctor for our 6 week old DS. Thanks!
