My daughter is starting Kindergarten next month. She is caught up with DTaP and IPV. However, she still is supposed to get the entire series of MMR, Hep B, and Chickenpox.

She is goind to get MMR before school starts, though I want her titered to hopefully avoid the second dose, but I really don't care to give her Hep B or Varicella at this time.

The school nurse told me as long as there is a note from the doc stating that I have scheduled visits to catch up that she can come to school. Should I just hope she never follows up and never get the shots?

Has anyone had experience with an exemption form stating exemption to only some but not all vaxes in CT?

I have not problem saying I am religiously opposed to HepB and Varicella only but I just don't know if it will fly?

I'm in CT too and have been dealing with the same issue...with the same vax's. My daughter is starting pre-school in the fall. I was told that CT is an all or nothing state, that you can claim religious exemption, however, you have to have a ped who is willing to go along with this and not include any shots your lo has gotten in any written forms he/she must fill out.
