Hi,

 

I live in Missouri , my son who's turning 5 next week has had all of his vaccinations up until 4. I no longer believe in vaccinating him. I have found the religious exemption form, but I have been told that if he has already been vaccinated that I can no longer file an exemption. Is this true? Has anyone else attempted this?

 

 

Thanks,

 

L

your religion can change at any point.  If you child has had shots you can still file the exemption, but you can no longer give vaccines once you file. 


Done with diapers!!

My understanding is that if you file a religious exemption and *then* go get some vaxxes, you might be in trouble but if you are totally stopping and then filing you should be fine. After all people change their religious beliefs all the time, no law against that. Also I think they can not ask specifics about what the religion is.
