I got a call from the high school nurse that my son is not to date on his tetanus booster. Over the years I have become more educated about vaccines and would like to opt out and not give him this vaccine. What can I do? I live in New Hampshire. I think there is a religious exemption, but am I able to do the religious exemption if he's basically had all the rest of them in the past? Thanks

One can become religious at any time in their lives.

Yup...as long as he doesn't get anymore from now on, you can do the religious exemption. People find religion all the time.

I don't know anything about NH's laws specifically but I would think in the Live Free or Die state, there would be a philsophical exemption.

But anyway, I'm in MA and we have only religious (well, and medical, but that's worthless). And yes, you can get religion anytime. And no, you are not required to specify a church much less prove you belong to one.
