  • Usually there is a religious waiver form that you can sign, saying it is against what you believe and that is fine. They can't make someone vaccinate their child. They probably just don't advertise that there is way around it.

  • I do think that the tetanus vaccine is truly necessary.
    Anyhow you can download the form from the government website. You don't have to explain but you have to mark one of the options and sign the document. Keep in mind that in some states immunization is "mandatory" unless you have a MEDICAL exemption. Children with certain allergies, certain immune diseases, or history of hydrocephaly, are exempted. Depending on the medical condition.

  • I forgot to mention that the form has to be notarized too. Philosophical exemption might not work. It is better to opt for the religious exemption.

  • There are waivers. My sons school said he had to be vaccinated but I showed them the law and they didn't even ask for a waiver at that point. The District tries to intimidate and make parents think vaccinations are mandatory but they are not.

  • Above it is just an example of how the form might look like. Every State has its own form.
