Okay, I'm not trying to flame anyone here, but sometimes I end up doing that because vaccination is a very personal choice. Here goes: I couldn't send my son to a terrific Waldorf school BECAUSE some parents don't vaccinate. I know he is a very rare medical type, but heck, this is our life and it hurts to be regarded as some freakish medical anomoly.
The reason is, he has a compromised immune system plus is allergic to one of the components of some vaccines. For most (non-vaccinated) children, exposure to measles, mumps, rubella, etc. means they stay home, are nursed through the illness, and return to school. For my son, it would mean hospitalization, treatment with steroids and other heavy-duty, side-effect laden meds, and several weeks out of commision. Please consider people like us, who CAN'T vaccinate, whether it is our wish or not. I would have loved to have had a Waldorf school experience, but out of 20 children in Kindergarten, 11 were not vaccinated, and I couldn't run the risk of exposure to viral infection. . .
