So I'm super irritated.

We just got a letter from SD's school today saying that she can't start school this year until we re-immunize her. Now, I have no problem with vaccinations. All my kiddos get them. Apparently BM had trouble counting out 8 weeks between her second and third hep B shots, though (she only waited 4 weeks, so it doesn't count - because the series was started/given in 2008, she has to redo the whole thing). I called and let her know that SD has to redo the series and asked if she could get it started where SD is with her (she lives around 1,200 miles away). Offered up the insurance info so she won't have to pay anything, and she doesn't work, so I know it's not like she has to miss a shift or anything to do it. Just trying to make SD miss a minimal amount of school.

The pain in the butt is that not only won't she take SD to get the series started again, she flat-out said (after laughing) "Oh, I'm gonna use that!" She's appealing the court's decision to give us custody right now, and I got a nice long lecture about how there's no way they'll let us keep the modified custody if she has to miss so much school for her shots.

I'm so aggravated right now.

I don't vax my kids so this freaks me out.  Lol. 

If it were me, I would just sign the waiver at the school refusing to vaccinate so that your SD doesn't have to miss any school and then go ahead and vaccinate according to whichever schedule you think works best.

Is it really all her fault or does your husband not now where the doctor's office is and needs you to do this now since it wasn't done the first time around?

Maybe your DH could ask her to send sd back a day or 2 early so she doesn't miss school if she won't take her to get it done. It does sound like she's trying to be a pain in the butt tho. I wouldn't worry about it. If she's appealing the courts decision for your DH to have custody and your sd misses school over it the judge will likely want to know why BM wasn't able to get it done since sd was w/her.

can't you just get a titer to see if she has the antibodies?

yeah, you should be able to make the waiver work too.  Just be careful how you write it up.

and this-- if your DH starts the series over when she gets back, she should be fine.

I would do the waiver thing that a poster mentioned above. Seems like the easiest route.

I didn't know there WAS a waiver for that. The letter says it's a state mandate that she have them :-/

I'll definitely be calling the school Monday to see if we can do that. I don't want her to have to miss any school. She already missed a month last year when we were first awarded custody because BM wouldn't give us the medical records and school transcripts we needed. Thanks!

Vaccines are never mandatory. There is always a way out. The schools want you to vax so they don't tell you that.
