(We live in Virginia, by the way)

...But what exactly do you need to do to get yourself on the up and up so to speak about filing your child's exemptions and all of that? I just realized that perhaps I needed to do something about that. Forgive me if that's completely stupid. No one has said anything to me at the ped's office about it or anything.

My daughter is two, and we're not planning on doing any vaccinations. She'll probably go to preschool next year and I know they'll want a copy of the exemption and the same when she eventually goes to our local public school.

But....do I need to get that on file with the ped or the health department now? Am I risking something by apparently being uneducated about the system and not filing it yet?

No one needs to file an exemption until you send the child to day care or school.

So you can wait until then.

Here is a previous thread on the subject: Virginia Vaccine Exemption

Thanks, Gitti! I swear I'm much more informed about not vaccinating than I am about state procedure.
