I have a question for the mothers who choose not to vaccinate. What do you do when it comes time for them to start kindergarden or any school that requires immunization records? Or if they have to go the doctor or emergency room, what do you tell them? I ask because although we have done some shots with our 2 year old, we are due with a son soon and I am beginning to think that vaxing our daughter wasn't the best choice, and maybe our son shouldn't be.

There is no law that requires vaccines in any state. There are exemptions for every one of them. As for the ER I simply tell them we don't vax. It's that easy. Some will ask why, most wont. It's becoming more and more common and they are used to it. Check out the Choosing Not to Vaccinate for information and help! Or you can PM me if you would like!

You do not HAVE to vax your child. YOU are the parent, and you make the medical decisions for your child/children. Every state has a medical exemption, 48 states (all but MS &WV) have religious exemptions, and 18 states have philosophical exemptions (view state info here).
Anon :49, there is plenty of fact to support non-vaxing. Take your misery elsewhere.
