Religious Exemption- need advice - Page 2

post #21 of 24

My son is in 5th grade, and we just submitted his exemption forms. He was fully vaccinated when he entered the school in kindergarten, and they had not asked me for anything since then. They were updating his file, and wanted his shot records. I told them I would be claiming a religious exemption. I printed a standard religious exemption letter, signed it, scanned it, and emailed it to the office. I guess it was accepted, because they never said anything else about it. I believe he is due for a few boosters next year in 6th grade, so I hope this works each year.

I have a question. My dd is not 2 yet but I am thinking...is there a form you print out and add to the school paperwork? I'm thinking religious exemption is better than philosophical. Like it is harder to fight. But my faith doesn't actually have anything to do with my non vac status. My decision is research based. So when you say you are not vaxing for religious reasons, do you have to say what your faith has to do with it or do you just say "religious belief"? I know I'm like 4 years from school but I'm wondering about this.

Very, VERY often.  A local school just cleaned out a principal and two office staffers for this reason.

I tried to google this info for China but all I could find was advice for visitors, like the recommendation for yellow fever vaccine.

The china part I'm not concerned with. If we are in the US at that time, we'd be in California. In China we can work around requirements pretty easy.
