My son is up for boosters before entering public school here in Mississippi. We had titers drawn today for varicella and MMR and I'm hoping that I can get a medical exemption if they are positive, but I haven't found any proof that this will work. Anyone know?

I'm replying to my own post since no one knows the answer I thought I would share. His positive MMR and Varicella titers were accepted (and indeed there is a place on the form them). While it states that only MMR titers would be accepted they did accept the Varicella too, possibly b/c it is impossible to prove whether or not he got his antibodies naturally or through the vax. He had all his baby shots. I told them he was exposed to chickenpox when he was a baby anyway! So to those living in states without exemptions (and this was NOT considered a medical exemption, it was proof of immunity) this is one way to avoid boosters for school entry.

Thanks for posting this. Anything you can add will be helpful for other moms living in one of the two states without religious or philosophical exemptions.

Yes. It is, without a doubt, unconstitutional, but until someone challenges it, it stands. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
