Quick question.....My ds's primary school had an "incident" with a child in prek who had hep A, got sick and was hospitalized. The school decided to only inform the parent's in the prek class and provide vax for the class and 2 teachers. (I think they feared a "backlash" agaisnt the immigrant community as the child was a recent immigrant) My friend's dd is in the class and doesn't want her child to get the vax, the school is saying the health dept is "requiring" each child in the class to be vaxed. Does she have legal standing to opt out? She told the school she would discuss it with her husband who is out of town (to buy time), but that was before the break and she fears the full court pressure when we return....oh we are in jersey..

Like any vax she can opt out with a religious objection. Though it's possible that in this case her child might be excluded for a week or so since they had an "outbreak"

On the vax exemption I signed, it said my child could be excluded if there was an outbreak of something he wasn't vaxed for.
