School Immunization waiver form and ???'s

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
It is that time of the year again... and the school needs another Immunization form. Every time my kids enter kindergarten, JH, or High School they require another form. I live in Michigan and philosophical exemptions are accepted here and that is what I have always used.... and I have a couple questions.
1.) I have leaned more toward religious objections and wondered if it would be 'unaccaeptable' to switch' ? I am thinking ahead in case Michigan would every change their law?

2.) The standard Michigan waiver form states: "By signing this waiver, you acknowledge that you are placing your child and others at risk of serious illness should he or she contract a disease that could have been prevented through proper vaccination." Would you sign this form as is? I try not to make too much of a scene because it is a private christian school and they do not have to accept waivers although they always have.

And now just a comment... i have learned so much on this board and from all of you! I am completely unvaccinated 35 year old mom to 3 unvaccinated kids.... I am very comfortable of my decision and the hours I have spent online reading has made me feel better armed with information. THANK YOU!!

As far as I know you can claim religion any time and that is what I would do.

Personally I would not sign this form but substitute it with the one from suschi.
