We're registering our 3 1/2-year old for Public Preschool here in Ohio and we do not vaccinate. She has been so healthy compared to my older 2 children, that I can't even believe I ever made them go through the trauma and risk. Anyway, I now find myself preparing to battle the Public School system and wondered if anyone had a "format" to use for school, daycare, etc. to "exempt" her from the vaccination requirement.
Our pediatrician has been very supportive of our decision to not vaccinate her and if asked, can prove how infrequently she has seen our very healthy, happy, and thriving child. After reviewing the Ohio Revised Code for Public Schools, it appears that I can quote the exception clause and indicate philosophical preference or reasons of conscience, but of course I'd like another opinion . . . anyone?
