So I must be missing something huge here. I can find 100 letters requesting exemption, but I am missing where to send them. My pedi is pretty good about delaying, but he said without that exemption, we will need to find a new pedi.

I have 3 kids. 3 1/2 a little over 2 and 8 months. The 8 month old has had 2 shots, the 2 year old stopped at MMR and Chicken Pox as did the 3 year old. I don't want any of them to have to get anymore. I would like to get this letter sent out this week, but just can't seem to find where to send it. None of them go to school, and it seems most I find are written to the school nurse. None of my friends are concerned like I am. Thanks a ton ladies!\
I look forward to your responses.

Exemptions are filed for school and daycare. You do not need one for a ped - sounds like he/she is simply trying to force your hand on vaxing. I'd find a new doc ASAP.

Thank you spero. I am going to my insurance website right now to find a new one. I really like this pedi, save for his vax. I try and understand both sides. But I will never understand, why--as the mother--I have to jump through hoops for not wanting things injected into my children. He made it seem that I had to get an approved exemption to give to him. I guess I will just start fresh somewhere else.

Thanks Again!

Get your exemption notarized and give it to him if he feels that it is important . It is meaningless to anyone but him.

"It should be a rule in all prophylactic work that no harm should ever be unnecessarily inflicted on a healthy person (Sir Graham Wilson, The Hazards of Immunization, 1967)."
