Vaccinate... Don't Vaccinate... School Questions

If there is a child in a class who is unvaccinated, are the other students parents notified?
If not, Should they be?

Is it different when it comes to registering a non-vaccinated child for public school?
Since their are "required" medical forms, what type of information does the parents of unvaccinated children have to give?

I vaccinate, just curious....

Their medical decisions aren't other parents business.

Yup.

Quoting TSNDDY: Their medical decisions aren't other parents business.

No, other parents aren't notified if another child is unvaccinated. And hell no, they shouldn't be! What I do with my child (or don't do) is no one's business. We have to get a waiver from the state here (TX) and turn that in instead of the shot record and I think even that is BS. In NC all I had to do was write a letter saying we don't vaccinate.

No they are not notified and no they should not be. It would violate confidentiality laws. I sign a waiver instead of providing an immunization record. It's simple.

No, they should have to notify anyone. I'm sure those who need to know, know.

No one is notified, and the child needs an exemption to attend school.

No probably not as that is confidential information.
