I have an 11yo son who was fully vaccinated until 1st grade when I learned better. I also have a 10 mo old who is totally unvaccinated.
I've not had much problem avoiding vaccinations. My chiropractor has a standard form for non-vaccinating parents to fill out and hand to schools etc in lieu of an immunization schedule. My son's school has never given me any resistance with this.
In AZ, We can choose an N.D. or N.M.D.-- a naturopathic medical doctor. The one I have is great and vaccinating is not even an issue. Her practice also includes homeopathy and Chinese medicine. Very cool.
If you cannot find an N.D. in your area, at least find a D.O. You're on the right track with a chiropractor. Our chiro has also been our family's primary care professional for years. We haven't had much need for a regular medical doctor.
I hope this helps. Good luck!
