You will have to get one from the health department. The daycare doesn't have to accept an exemption unless they receive funding from the gov. Most centers do, but private home daycares might not. Anyways here is the wording:<br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Using the form provided by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, a student whose parent or<br>
guardian objects to immunization on the ground that the immunization conflicts with the parent's or guardian's<br>
bona fide religious beliefs and practices is exempt from the requirement to present a physician's certificate of<br>
immunization in order that the student be admitted to school.</td>
</tr></table></div>

If they are licensed they would have to accept exemptions because they are subject to the vaccine law just as schools are. If they are more of a babysitter/casual operation then I guess they can do what they like.<br><br><a href="http://www.nvic.org/Vaccine-Laws/state-vaccine-requirements/maryland.aspx" target="_blank">http://www.nvic.org/Vaccine-Laws/sta.../maryland.aspx</a><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
