Does it make a difference with the exemption?

We are not vaccinating at all and I hope to use a religious exemption since I do not have philos as a choice. I am against the aborted fetal tissue in the vaccinations(among other things). Does that count as a religious exemption?

Sometimes. Public schools have to accept exemptions, private schools can refuse them as long as they don't receive any state/federal funding.

NO. By law, that is considered philosophical exemption.

To claim religious exemption you must be opposed to the practice of vaccination, not just certain vaccines.

I also wanted to add that if the private school is religious based you don't have to offer a specific religion for the exemption. They shouldn't ask.
