When my first child was starting daycare, the doctor's office gave me two separate pieces of paper: one for the general health and one for the vaccines; I sent the first to the daycare and substituted a (religious) exemption form for the second. This time, the doctor's office gave me a single sheet of paper that has both the general health and the vaccines. What should I do?
I can either submit the doctor's form as it is along with the exemption form -- but I am afraid this will create problems with whatever authorities my DCP is submitting her forms to, perhaps especially since my first son, who attended the same daycare, also had a religious exemption for daycare. (For what it's worth, my DCP personally doesn't care at all; she's just trying to be in compliance with whatever authorities license her.)
Or I suppose I can go back to the doctor's office and ask them to create or fill out a form that has general health information only, not vaccine info. I find the prospect of doing this incredibly stressful as well, as they would have to do something special for me alone; I'm sure there would be great resistance from the office staff; I'd have to deal with the doctor directly without an appointment, or make an appointment & pay a $30 copay, etc., etc., etc.
Is one option clearly better than the other? Any other suggestions?
