Hi! My name is Olya, I'm from Russia. Now I'm living in Redmond, WA since last november (1 year). Sorry for my english - it's not very well. I have son, he is 21m. He has not any vaccinations. My husband works in Microsoft, he has a works visa. So in few next years we may receive greencart, but we will must to do inoculations for our son. I don't want to do this. Have I any choices? May be anybody knows what can I do to avoid vaccinations? It will be great =)

Thank you!

You can request a waiver of the vaccination requirement based on something like " religion or deeply held moral convictions."  You will probably want to get help drafting that from an immigration lawyer.

I don't think that you have to attend church for that to work.  You can find an immigration lawyer in your area at aila.org  Good luck.

i dont know if you are still here but i live in washington too! welcome to the rainy state! i love it here and am very grateful that we have all three vaccination exemptions. i dont think you will have much trouble getting out of vaccinating! dont let anybody try to convince you otherwise! like saralm said, getting a lawyer is a great idea.

 

i have a 5 month old baby girl who is also unvaccinated. sadly i cant speak russian. aber ich kann ein bisschen Deutsch sprechen! it would be cool to become friends. i dont know any non-vaccinating mothers other than my cousin, who is due to have her first baby any day now!
