Hello all!

I will be living in South Carolina for a year while my husband is deployed (we are a military family), and planning to put my children in a small preschool program for a couple days a week (Mom's Morning Out type program). We are part way through a delayed vax schedule for my 7 month old, and I am wondering what the "drill" is in terms of vax certifications in SC for your child to participate in preschool. Do I just need to submit an exemption letter, or is it enough that I have the doc fill out the immunization cert indicating the dates that we plan to give my daughter any vaxes that she hasn't received by the time preschool starts? I have read the state health department's info on this, but can't tell what will be acceptable other than to immunize on the CDC's schedule.

Any guidance is appreciated -- thanks!

I have a 3.5 yo not fully vaccinated. I have not used MMO, but have signed her up for preschool next year. She does not need certificate for her preschool but there are some that would not accept non vaccinated children in programs. I'd call the program for their policy.

I would go ahead and fill out the exemption-it's very easy to get one and vax on your own schedule as you choose.
