  • It irks me that they even ask for the forms. Why bother asking if it isn't really required? It's not like I love going and collecting my kids recodes for the school each year. It has nothing to do with vax or not (because I don't care) it has to do with the gov requiring unnecessary documents.

  • Yes I knew that and frankly it irks me. Either require them or don't. What is the point of requiring them if there is a 'unless' category. I am not saying everyone should have to vaccinate by any means, I am just saying it is stupid they require shot records when obviously it isn't necessary.

  • I did not when my children were little or we may have forgone the vaccines all together. Had we homeschooled from the start we would not have them.

  • Yes I knew that, I still vaccinate and that's my choice. I have a strong feeling that if I actually looked into it more I would stop all vaccinations but I also fear the diseases.

    CarriePM, why so hostile? She isn't advertising anything. She's simply giving a link the same as anyone else who is talking about a news story or showing a product they want opinions on. Seriously, if the question bothers you so much, hit the back button.

  • No thanks. I believe in vaccines. I am not risking my child's life when we have ways to prevent these horrific illnesses that have killed kids for centuries. And you are not supposed to advertise on Answers. I am reporting you.

  • I do believe in vaccinating, and my kids are vax'd. (I also believe that to vax or not is a personal choice, and I don't bash anyone who chooses not to). I know on the bottom of my kids school vaccine form there is a spot for non-vax parents to check and sign off on.
