I'm mostly a come and learn kinda gal but my son is havin' medical issues and may soon be changin' schools. As a nurse I believed what I was taught and just went along with the vaxes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: so he's current for the moment but...this comin' year things are gonna change and I at the very least wanna delay anymore for him and as we are TTC I wanna delay/refuse some with my new child (God willin'). Anyway...I've been readin' a lot of the info here and I went to check out my states exemption laws. Maybe it's the 3rd shift gettin' to me but I swear I can't make heads or tails out of most of it. I found a dumbed down FAQ section.<br>
This is what is said. Red bolds are the things I have ?'s about.<br>
source <a href="http://www.scdhec.gov/health/disease/immunization/faq.htm#exemption1" target="_blank">SCDHEC</a><br><br>
Question:<br>
What type of immunization exemptions are available in South Carolina?<br>
Answer:<br>
Medical and religious exemptions are the only available immunization exemptions in South Carolina.<br><br>
Question:<br>
What is a religious exemption?<br>
Answer:<br>
A South Carolina Certificate of Religious Exemption (DHEC form 1126) may be granted to any student whose parent, guardian, or person in loco parentis signs the appropriate section of the exemption stating they are <b><span style="color:#FF0000;">members of a recognized religious denomination in which the tenets and practices of the religious denomination conflict with immunizations.</span></b><br><br><b><span style="color:#FF0000;">so it has to be a recognized denomination? What "recognized denominations" are there? I mean is there a religion that I can claim? I'm just a regular ol southern Baptist (not fire and brim stone mind you but...)</span></b><br><br>
Question:<br>
How can I obtain a South Carolina Certificate of Religious Exemption?<br>
Answer:<br>
A Religious Exemption form (DHEC form 1126) can be obtained by requesting a form <b>in person</b> from any county public health department. Contact numbers for countypublic health departments can be found at <a href="http://www.scdhec.net/health/county.htm" target="_blank">http://www.scdhec.net/health/county.htm</a>.<br>
Forms cannot be e-mailed or mailed. Follow the instructions on the form. Don't forget to have the document notarized.<br><br><b><span style="color:#FF0000;">they did the in person part in bold...why is that? So they can hassle the...er poop out of me about why I don't wanna vax anymore/at all? and "follow the instructions on the form. Dont' forget to have the document notarized" I mean what are we 3?</span></b><br><br><br>
My questions are a long time comin' and since we've not needed anymore in awhile I've gotten slack. But so much of what happened around my sons birth has made me change my way of thinkin'. Like them "forcing" me to have my 4th rubella vax b/c as they claimed I was not immune. (hmmm...now I am really wondering why at the young age of 32 I have horrible joint pain among other things listed as side effects from the rubella vax) The Hep B given to my new born <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: and then the chicken pox vax that...GAVE HIM THE FREAKIN' CHICKEN POX<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
For your help in answering these questions and aid in how to get this exemption for my son and any future children<br>
I as a nurse here do promise to be an advocate and educate people on the dangers of vaxes instead of just following the crowd.<br>
Thank you

oh yeah I forgot to add. I did see one place that mentioned the Religious form having not only the refusal of vax but it also said by signing the form I was also refusing other medical tests/procedures/medications.<br><br>
If I do get the Religious exemption is this correct? I mean I'd like to be able to judge on a case by case basis what I will have done medically to my child(ren).

Though the law is written this way "on the books" it is uninforceble due to a US Supreme Court ruling. Some state laws allow the state to ensure the "sincerity" of your beliefs but <b>anyone of any religion</b> can have a religious exemption; even southern Baptists.

You can do whatever you feel is necessary for your child, just don't tell the school <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> .
