<p>And it was so easy! I just moved from Indiana to Florida. My twins were in pre-K in Indiana but they didn't require any waivers so this was my first experience with getting them. Florida has a form so I went to the health dept, asked for it, filled it out and that was it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>They did have a section with a list of about 10 vaxs that said at the top "childs doctor <insert name> said that child should receive these vaxs: and had a list with 2 boxes, one said receive and the other was decline. I had to check all the boxes that said decline. I told my bf that in Florida, just like Indiana, it's an all or nothing waiver. You can't pick and choose which vaxs to give, you either give them all or none so I'm wondering if they have this list so that if someone were to check that the child is to receive X vax, the waiver would be voided and they would be flagged somehow in the computer system. I know that Florida has a program where all the children are kept on a database for compliance. What do you think about this?</p>

<p>That isn't for a religious exemption, that is for a medical exemption. A child may only need to be medically exempt from a few or one vaccines.</p>

<p>I don't think you have the right form. My understanding is that you need a blue form #681 that is signed by the HD nurse at the time of issue.</p>

<p>I can't find an image of it anywhere. I don't know why that would be there other than to trip you up, but the DOH says that you only need to complete the child's name and date of birth, parent's name, parent signature, and signature and stamp of the DOH</p>
