Hi everybody,

I am looking for a group in Colorado (I live in Snowmass close to Aspen) for non vaccinated kids and their parents, to support each other, to organize chicken pox parties...

Thanks,
Christel

I would recommend looking into The Holistic Moms Network. www.holisticmoms.org

Hi there! Welcome to Denver: I'm not exactly a support group, but I am the only one in my neighborhood (that I know of) who has not done all the vaxes. I would also like to find some chickenpox floating around Denver The great thing about living here is at least we can easily sign a waiver to get into public schools with no problem at all. DD starts Kindergarten next month, and the principal didn't even blink when I asked what to do about the vax thing.

We are in Denver, too - not entirely no vax, but very close to it - and also actively searching for pox parties. Where in Denver are you, 1COmama? Our kiddos are really close in age

What are the laws concerning vax exemptions in CO? I plan to homeschool but would be nice to know anyways just in case.

Here in FL you have to get a religous exemption from the Health Dept.

I don't know if this is how it is in all of Colorado or just in Denver. All I had to do was sign a form (which I got from the school) and check a box that I didn't vaccinate for personal beliefs. That was that!

Hey Christel, you wouldn't happen to belong to a homeschool group would you?
I know a Christel that is part of a homeschool group and I haven't been able to see them in a long time. If you are looking for other non-vaxing parents on the Western Slope, I live in Rifle and would love to have a support group too.
Let me know if you start something like this.

Blessings,

Kim
