Every single vaccine question that comes up - whether for or against - has at least one answer stating, as if it were fact, vaccines are required by law for schools...
Is it really that unknown that Public Schools can not refuse a child based on vaccines? I mean, I have even seen this information on GMA and other News Shows, so how is it that there are really that many parents who don't know it?
Do parents really not know this? or are they making statements like this hoping others don't know? or is it something else? I mean, for or against vaccines, the law is the law, and your views can't make something law if it's not... So why make these statements IF you know they aren't true? And IF you don't know the facts are you simply not paying attention?

"If the bona fide religious beliefs of an adult or the parent, guardian or person in loco parentis of a child are contrary to the immunization requirements, the adult or the child shall be exempt from the requirements. Upon submission of a written statement of the bona fide religious beliefs and opposition to the immunization requirements, the person may attend the college, university, school or facility without presenting a certificate of immunization. No child shall be exempt from the requirements of immunizations for the case of a personal belief or philosophy of a parent or guardian not founded upon a religious belief."
The law as written in NC - and yes, our local publics schools have refused a child because he was not vaccinated because of PERSONAL belief not religious.
