I'm so mad right now.  I just have to vent and if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.


I live in Lexington county and I have to make an appointment to get the form 1126 for religious exemption.  I made an appointment with my regional office... and it's not until 2 weeks!!!!  I need tohave these forms so I can go back to work.  It's unfair enough that I have to make an appointment to supposedly explain myself but that I have to wait two weeks to go in person to get a piece of paper that states I am exercising my legal rights in not having my child vaccinated is unreal and very upsetting!  


Is there anything I can do to get this form faster?  Has anyone in my country or region done this recently with less hassle?  I am reeling with anger right now.  Bless my poor husband's heart as he is coming home right now.

You could try just showing up a the regional office and telling them you have an appointment. They'll see you don't, of course, but "there must have been some mistake," and maybe the person will be nice and agree to see you since you are already there?


Edited to add: I just read on this thread (posts #13 and #15) a couple different people just showed up at the regional office without an appointment and got the form without too much hassle. One person went to a different county and there was no problem with that.

I havent been to Mothering in YEARS.. but yesterday I went to Richland Health Department (SC) & asked for the form and was told about the apointment & they are booked up for weeks . while sitting there waiting to see if they could fit me in (they couldnt) i googled vaccine exemption appointment & this thread came up.. you probably have it taken care of now.. but thought Id comment anyways. this is our 3rd exemption.. 1st 2 i walked into our old health dept (we just moved) in Chesterfield county & walked out 1 minute later with the forms. I called my mom yesterday, shes in marlboro county & she went & walked in & got the form. Id make a road trip before dealing with Lexington or Richland county Health departments
