I feel such anxiety over trying to secure a religious exemption for my son - he will start Pre K (its universal in our school district) in Sept ....its half days. i REALLY want him to go - he has been at home with me for nearly 4 years and i think Kindergarten will be totally overwhelming for him if he doesnt go to Pre K first.
He has had a total of 5 vaxxes. I always assumed i would get him everything necessary for K-garten - but pre - k vax requirements are like day care requirements - i hate the thought of 4 extra vaccines for just this one year of school ....
also - his last vax was a combo (i know...what was i thinking???) DTaP and Polio - he came down with 'Dermatographia" 48 hours later. no - ped will not write a medical exemption -that was one year ago..... but if after his next shot he gets sick again - thats it ...i am stopping vax altogether. - So it may behoove me to get this religious exemption nailed down.
I am tempted to lie on the form and type in a few extra dates - i dont really like to lie....but i will be lying about a religious exemption - i have been an atheist since i was a child....if they call me in for an interview ...i will be SUNK.
Any experience trying for a religious exemption in NY for Pre K? I do have it written - anyone care to proof read it for m?
