technically you're supposed to vax your children even if you homeschool, though very few if any homeschoolers actually do. Most people tell their docs that they are getting vaxed at the health dept instead or something. i know a woman who was actually prosecuted for not vaxing her homeschooled kids, and nearly got them taken away. it was a huge battle and it went on for a very long time and basically bankrupted the family. it was atrocious.
if you send your kids to school, there is no religious or philosophical exemption, so basically you have to vax unless you qualify for a medical exemption (which are thoroughly investigated and hard to get even if you need one for an actual medical reason).
so yeah, not the best vax situation here in WV. but it's quite a wonderful place to live otherwise!
