If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." Thomas Jefferson.
I am still not 100% clear on this. I keep reading about the need for exemptions but is that only for school? If you homeschool, do I still need to have this on hand? If so, for what reason?
It looks as though in Ga they say you must be vaccinated for entrance into school. I can't find anything that says the law says you must be vaccinated period...school or no school. I hope this is making sense.
I have been to the ER 4 times with my ds. Each time, I have just told them we don't vaccinate and I have never had a problem. But just in case, I want to know my rights. Is the law for all children or just those attending school?
there is at least one state that requires them period. Not just for school.
I live in California, which supports religious, medical, and personal belief exemptions. I want to get a personal belief exemption, but I'm afraid it would be extremely complicated or difficult. For California, it is just for daycare and school entry. Particular vaccs are done for babies/toddlers and then more vaccs done for grade school age.
I know one state (W. Va I think? West something! ) that a medical exemption is the only thing available and it's very difficult to get. NY is also ridiculously difficult to get any kind of exemption. I know of NO state that forces vaccines for anything.
|it is part of the public health law in most states that every child must be vaccinated irregardless of school.|
