We decided on the cyber charter for dd (1st grade) and I have to fill out a form because I am using the exemption for vaccines. We are in PA, where it can be for a religious or ethical reason, but they are asking for me to write the reason out.
Will I sound like a smart a$$ if I just write: "I object to fully vaccinating based on ethical convictions." or similar? I don't believe that I am legally required to give them an exact reason? We have done some vaccines, nearly all when she was less than 1 year, but one tetanus in the last couple of years as well, if that matters.
I need to send it in tomorrow, so I'd love a quick response if anyone has done this!
Probably too late. I'm guessing that for future vaccine-exemption questions, I would post in I'm Not Vaccinating for a faster response.
Anyway, the wording sounds good to me, though I know some places make it difficult if you have partially vaccinated. Not snarky. I don't think you need to go into the details, but I'm not an expert.
And perhaps an update?
"Let me see you stripped down to the bone. Let me hear you speaking just for me."
Thanks anyway :) I did search in the vax forum later, but didn't find much.
I ended up writing "I have a strong ethical objection to the recommended vaccines and schedule." (PA law states that a religious exemption also includes moral and ethical objections that are similar to a religious belief.)
The school nurse just wrote back that she got it and that was it, so I'm assuming no issue?
As I said, I'm not sure that I am legally obligated to give a reason at all beyond that I have the ethical objection, so I decided to keep it simple :)
