We enrolled DS in a private montessori school today. They were more than happy to accept his vaccination exemption. However, the enrollment paperwork includes a blanket consent for medical treatment in the case of an accident. It states that you are consenting to "any and all treatment deemed necessary by the treating physician."<br><br>
I'm quite sure that in the case of my unvaxed child a physician might feel it was his duty to vaccinate my child. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
This is required paperwork for his enrollment packet. What should I do to ensure that I am not giving a doctor consent to vaccinate my child? Should I write on the paper in big letters that NO vaccines should be administered to my child?<br><br>
Thanks in advance!<br><br>

I added a note to mine, above the signature, that said I DO NOT consent to the administration of any vaccinations.

Schools and hospitals are, in my experience, fairly cautious about treating children when their parents are not present. Major emergency treatment, yes. Otherwise, no.<br><br>
At one school where I worked, a boy cut himself in woodcarving class. Since I was a friend of the family I was asked to go to the hospital with him while the mom made her way over from work. The hospital didn't even stitch up the cut (although they did clean it) until they had talked to the mother on the phone.

I crossed out what I didn't agree with, and added a note stating that no preventative or routine medical care was to be given to my child without my express permission and presence. They are allowed to do screenings (vision, scoliosis, etc.) and emergency medicine only (he has emergency allergy meds kept at the school), they are not even allowed to use antibiotic creams like neosporin on him (he's allergic.) The school nurse is a floating nurse, and when she found out she wasn't happy, but poor her. For us, at this time, it works.

I wrote in a note that my kids were to receive "no injections of any kind except to treat violent allergic reaction"<br><br>
I would absolutely say SOMETHING, even if doctors tend to be cautious about treatment while parents aren't around, you want to cover your bases.

Vaccines are not emergency medicine so I doubt that they would vaccinate. But it never hurts to mention it. I would write on the very bottom in fairly large letters "Absolutely NO Vaccines".

tetnus could be given in an emergency situation. doesn't even seem like a big leap. i would definately put no vaccinations somewhere on there.

That was what I was thinking. If he got hurt they might try to give him a DPaT if he got hurt for the tetanus component. He is only 3.<br><br>
The only vaccines he got were his first round. He screamed and screamed, ran a high fever, and had a seizure. I don't want them going anywhere near him with any vaxes.
