We are moving to Washington DC in September and don't want to vax. Our son is 20 months. Does anyone know if it is hard to get a religious exemption in D.C.? (We've used the philosophical exemption in California, where we are now, but D.C. doesn't have that)

Also, do you have recommendations for pediatricians that will not pressure us to vax, but who also accept insurance?

not sure about vax friendly peds in DC. Try posting in the tribe area. There are none on Dr. Sear's website. here is a link to DC exemption laws. You would need to file a religious exemption. Looks like you need to submit them to the school principle with a signed notarized statement from you

Hi, I have the same problem moving from Italy to California. Does the philosophical exemption work well in California? We are enrolling our un-vax son in a private pre-school but I haven't tell them yet that he is un-vax and I am anxious they could refuse to accept him when we arrive in California. Do you think it could be possibile?
Could you be so kind to send me the text of the exemption you used to use in California?
many thanks
B
