My 15-mo is completely un-vaccinated. We are moving to Montana and we will need to do some sort of daycare/preschool. What on EARTH do you do, with only a medical exemption exception? I'm freaking out.

they have religious exemptions too



Available Exemptions
Medical  &  Religious 

Religious Exemption form, HES-113, must be signed and notarized yearly. 

"When a parent, guardian, or adult who has the responsibility for the care and custody of a minor seeking to attend school or the person seeking to attend school, if an adult, signs and files with the governing authority, prior to the commencement of attendance each school year, a notarized affidavit on a form prescribed by the department stating that immunization is contrary to the religious tenets and practices of the signer, immunization of the person seeking to attend the school may not be required prior to attendance at the school. The religious exemption is not limited to an established or recognized traditional religion but also encompasses sincerely held personal religious beliefs."



here is the form:

Actually, MT law only allows religious exemptions only for K-12 and for the HIB vaccines for day care. There was a recent failed attempt to allow religious exemptions for ALL day care vaccines.

I can't cut & paste right now, but check out and even consider contacting them. Also, go to the find-your-tribe section of MDC and post this in the sub-forum for MT. There may be some knowledgable MT mamas there.

In some states, you can get around vax requirements by using somebody's in-home daycare.
