Here is the form required by maryland:
Right below the thick black line there is a place that says religious exemption. All you do is sign and date.
Maryland also has a lead testing requirement.
The form required by Maryland is here:
At the bottom of the box "Certification Information" there is a place to sign for an exemption.
They may give you the form here instead:
There is no place for a waiver here, so I filled it out except for the health care provider part and attached the certification form that included the portion for a waiver.
We didn't have a problem though. I didn't ask if they offered exemptions, I just filled them out. If they are compliant with maryland requirements they have to accept them. Maryland is luckily straightforward with this.
I didn't have any problems with this.
Sorry to hijack this post but now I have a question after reading this (I asked in "Vaccinations" a while back but didn't get too many responses). Now I'm curious as to what y'all think......
My (almost) 5 year old has had all of his vaccinations. He's up to date, except for the 2nd MMR.
The problem? When he was first born, I "didn't know any better" about vaccinations (and honestly didn't even really think about it) but I recently started researching them....
My son is entering kindergarden in the fall and I don't know what to do since he hasn't had the 2nd dose of MMR (which is required)
How do I handle this with the school if I don't want to give him the vax? Do I submit all his vaccinations and then attach a religious exemption to it? I mean, I think it's important for the school to know that he's had all but one shot, right? (I don't want to withhold information from them.) But will they "give me a hard time" about the religious exemption since he's had practically everything else? Or do I just give my son the 2nd MMR???
Again, so sorry to hijack...it just seems like you are a wealth of knowledge and I'm relatively new to all of this.
Anyone have experience using this process in the somewhat Un-crunch-friendly world of Montgomery County? We're in Bethesda; the preschool we're looking at (Bethesda Coop) explicitly states that vaccinations must be up to date. Would they still have to accept the exemption?
Where do I find a spot for exemptions on the physical? I don't really object to a physical, but I do suspect it would get dicey with the pediatrician asking him/her NOT to fill out the vaccination section... Anyway, I found the religious exemption spot for immunization, and for lead blood testing, but not for the physical.
