I do not immunize my daughter for personal reasons, and in my state you have to fill out an exemption paper stating your reasons for not vaccinating your child. This is specifically for the daycare I am enrolling my daughter in. I have tons and tons of reasons, but I feel a bit nervous when I'm filling out a government document. The statement only calls for about four lines.. What would you write?

If you aren't going to immunize you shouldn't put your child in day care. You are putting your child and the other children at risk. If you have to work then there are other options. You could hire someone to care for her in your home or take her to someone's home that doesn't have kids or only cares for her own kids and knows you child isn't immunized.
My own children and grandson are selectively immunized. Years ago when parents were choosing to not immunize they were stay at home moms and homeschooling was common. We weren't putting our kids or others at risk. If you aren't going to immunize there are responsibilities that go along with that decision and that should include keeping your child out of group situations. If your child gets sick even immunized children are at risk since immunization isn't 100%.
