My dd is returning to school 9th grade to be exact. She has been homeschooled since 4th grade. She is up to date up until 4 I think she has had NO booster shots. They have asked me for her vaccine recrds when I come to fill out paper work. Do I say she is excempt and file out appropriate papers or do I give them the shot record and say she is having NO more. We are in Ohio if that helps. Whats the best route to take in this situation.

Exemptions are submitted in lieu of vax records; there is no need to let them know she was ever vaxed.

i would just do a philosphical exemption (since youre in ohio).
i dont have the exact website, but you can find info on (i've gotta run some errands soon, so dont have time to search for you.)
good luck!

Check the wording of your state's philosophical exemption--some allow for partial vax'ing so you can pick and choose which shots you do and do not want.

LI should be able to help you find the form if you don't already have it.

I'm stumped - I'm pretty sure OH has a preprinted exemption form (or it's on the immunization certificate). I can't find it anywhere online though.

oops I think I forgot this:
§3313.671 - Required Immunizations; Exceptions
B.4 A pupil who presents a written statement of the pupil's parent or guardian in which the parent or guardian objects to the immunization for good cause, including religious convictions, is not required to be immunized.

Thanks CB - Based on your post, it appears as though school districts have taken the liberty to create their own exemption forms. I think the OP should definitely ask the school if they have their own form, otherwise she can create her own statement.
