It looks like your post might have been missed, so I wanted to bump it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have experiences to share?

The religious exemption is still going on, as far as I know.  I used it successfully in late August 2013, and it got approved.  The form is here: http://www.immunizenm.org/documents/2012_NM_School_Immunization_Exemption.pdf

 

Fill it up, use the wording that will get it approved (below), and make sure to NOT sign it until you are in front of the notary public.  Then photocopy it (for your records) and send it on to Santa Fe (address is right on the form).

 

The magical wordage, which worked well for many others and myself, goes as follows:

"As the parent of (kids' name), my religious beliefs, held either individually or jointly with others, do not permit the administration of vaccines or other immunizing agents."  

 

(Essentially, you are spitting the words back at them.  Health Dept. employees don't have authority to judge religious beliefs anyway.   And, in a separate mothering discussion, there was much hair-splitting about whether individually-held religious beliefs don't sound awfully close to philosophical beliefs, thus what we have here is a philosophical exemption in disguise.)

 

Good luck.  Let us know how it worked out for you.

I see that this is an old thread, but my husband is interviewing for a job in NM (we are in Connecticut right now).  Did this wording work?

No worries!  There is no wording now, just check the box that says all this and you are good to go.  The only hard part is that for every place that needs it, they need their own copy that has to be sent to the state.  But otherwise, it has been easy peasy.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions :)
