Another vaccine question.

Two questions, actually.
1. If you chose to vaccinate your child later on in life, maybe when they turn 3 or 4 or whatever age, does the doctor still split it up? I know there's some where it's a couple dosages throughout a month period or whatever.

2. For school records - what do you?

  • 1. The doctor CAN split it up at any age. All you have to do is ask.

    2. NO, not all states have personal exemptions. Mississippi and West Virginia require that all children entering school or going to daycare be vaccinated. The ONLY allow a medical exemption.

    You have to check with your state. Some have personal exemptions available, and some only have religious. Some require you to be a member of a certain church and be signed by the pastor and others include personal religious reasons and don't require that.

    Bottom line: Check with your state.

  • for school, you get a vaccination exemption form. every state has them available, you can get it at the school but they usually say they dont have them, then you can just print it offline.

  • the thing they DON'T tell you is that you do not have to vaccinate. you are not legally obligated to do so, and your child can not be excluded from school/daycare/etc because you choose not to.
    vaccination exemption forms are also available at DHEC, and can be filed there and validated.

    after a couple of adverse reactions, i chose not to vaccinate my youngest at all. my middle child contracted german measles from the mmr. and my eldest contracted chicken pox from the vaccine as well- only with her, it was recurrent, she had it three times. they say it can not happen, but it does- i could get into the vaccination debate, but this is not the venue....
