That's great! I'm so glad yours was accepted!

You know, they never did call me back again after that last post. I never even told them I wasn't interested anymore. Ah well, I found a sitter who lives close to me and seems very nice.

Yes, I'd 'demand' that they certify in writing that they are in position of a lab report that confirms that a child in the daycare is infected with strain A,B, or C (whatever the strains are) that is included in the flu vaccine. The flu is easy to mistake for other illnesses and if it is not a strain in the vax then your child should not be excluded for not being vaccinated with a vaccine that could never (if working perfectly) have prevented the child's illness.

Just wanted to clarify regulations on the Air Force side of the house. AFI 34-276, Family Child Care Programs, provides guidance regarding FCC providers ... those who provide child care to no more than 6 children in their own home during the day (considered contractors by the government). AFI 34-248, Child Development Centers provides guidance regarding the CDC, which is basically the daycare center for AD dependants on the Air Force installation. Either way, both point to AFJI 48-110, Immunizations and Chemoprophylaxis as the standard for setting policy regarding immunization requirements. AFJI 48-110 does provide for religious exemption in 3-2(4), as stated above.

I am fighting this battle now. Hopefully I won't have to bring my chain of command into it ... :
