So my son is turning 3 next week. I have had concerns about vaccines since before he was born and have been on the fence about "going all the way" with them. His doctor in Michigan was awesome and I trust her, so when she insisted that we at least do a delayed vax schedule, I gave in a little. DS didn't get very many vaccines and his last one was not quite a year ago. I don't want to do more vaccines yet, but it looks like I need to get DS into a daycare or early school situation. If I get an exemption, can I still vaccinate later if I decide to?


Vaccination information is extremely intimidating to me, more so than ANY parenting topic. What are the resources that helped you make up your mind?

If you get an exemption, you can indeed vaccinate later.


You may or may not be able to get an exemption if you are selectively vaccinating -- that depends on the school system, but some of them are "all or nothing" for philosophical and religious exemptions.  It would be best to find out to help inform your decision.
