So in your case if you felt like you needed a church official sign the form, could you try for someone in your own community or further down on the totem pole? Find out what is necessary to repeal his decision...
I think the problem is that it's a Catholic school, and the Catholics in charge there do not see it as a religious problem. Therefore, they aren't letting her use it, b/c their religion (and I have mostly Catholic friends so I know very well how widely beliefs vary inside of Catholicism) doesn't believe the vaccines are a problem.
It might still be against the law, I don't know. Actually I remember reading that schools aren't allowed to ask what religion you are. The problem is that they KNOW what religion you are, but then again, they aren't allowed to ask in regards to this? Hmm.
Does this school allow kids of other religions to go there? If so could you say you converted to Christian Science or something? (grasping at straws)
