Hi, I'm new here, My two girls are fully vax up until now, one is almost 3 the other is 19m. Our ped. likes to seaperate vax so we have an up coming 21m appt for another vax.<br>
I'm pregnant now and always went with what the doc said, never questioned anything. But I came across a Vax thread and it made me want to research it and see what the issues were... Well I came to the conclusion that I will not vax my baby to be born in July. Easy decision...<br>
but what about my other two, will I have to have waivers for them to start school, being partially vax and all. Is it ok for me to just stop vaxing? I'll see the ped, once my baby is born and find out if he will sign a waiver when the time comes, I know some docs wont sign waivers,<br>
I guess I'm just looking for some assurance that it is ok to stop vaxing a particially vaxed kid.<br>
Thanks<br>

If you tell us what state you're in, we can give you exemption information so you can legally exempt your children from public health law. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Absolutely. You can stop any time you want. If your children have not received all of the recommended vaccines, they will need an exemption. Or you might consider getting them expemptions now, so that way when you refuse future boosters there will be no confusion.<br><br>

Of course it's okay to stop. Also, don't count on your Dr. to sign waivers. Look into other exemptions for your state.<br><br>

You declare it against your personal beliefs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I think you have to get a waiver at the health department in Florida though. There are some ladies on here that can tell you how to do it if you post a new thread with Florida in the title. It'll get their attention.<br><br><br>

Yep, it is ok. You can stop giving consent for vaxing any time you choose. Your DC may need an exemption or if you have titres drawn and they show immunity, some schools may be satisfied with that (if you don't want to go down the "exemption" path).

Like everyone else said, yes you can stop at any time! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Now if you go the religious exemption route then keep in mind that if ANYONE asks you what religion you are all you have to say is "I don't have to answer that." and you don't and they can't make you tell them! Also, you don't have to belong to an orginized religion. My religion is in my heart, and that is where it will stay. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
