I already posted this in my Tribe group, but not a lot of replies...

Anyone in Alaska(Anchorage, ideally) have/had a child in public school and not vaccinated? I'm going to go for a religious exemption since philosophical exemptions aren't recognized here. I just wanted to know how hard it is to go around doing this? Do the schools give you a hard time? My two oldest are fully vaccinated(minus chickenpox and flu) and my youngest won't be vaccinated at all..

i  found this interesting in their online 'handbook'..   the online handbook also has the religous exemption guidelines, pg 19...this little gem below is found at the top of page 20

It will cause no harm to the child to receive a vaccine for a disease to which he/she is already immune.
