For those of you who did not vaccinate your children...

How do you get around them going to daycare and school. Tomorrow we are going to his 2 month check up and the ped is wanting to give him a 5 in one shot, whooping cough, and some drop. I really don't want to overload his llittle body with all those toxic chemicals. I wish I didn't feel so much pressure to do them. My husbands big concern is school and daycare. We live in Kansas. We also don't know if he is in daycare and another child gets vaccinated for say, polio or something else, can my son catch polio (or whatever) from their vaccination?

Thank you

Every state has exemption forms. Some states, like mine you do not have personal exemption only religious. I am not religious but they didn't ask me any questions.

Here is state by state info on exemptions. KS has at least religious maybe phIlosiphical. Do not let them bully you with lies, you do not need to vaccinate for school and you do not need to defend you're choice if you're not comfortable doing so.
GL!

We will ultimately homeschool but my 21 month old son will attend preschool starting the 24th so I can finish college. In my state there are philosophical and religious (as well as medical) exemptions for daycare. However, there are only religious and medical exemptions for schooling. The daycare we are using is state certified but also affiliated with the private and conservative baptist college I attend. There was no issues when we enrolled him last month.

I am not concerned about the vaccinated kids. I do anticipate him possibly being sick more often. My DH is more concerned than I am but he always is. He hates to see his little guy sick or hurting but he agrees vaccinating is not an option. DS is still breastfeeding and he gets over illnesses rather quickly. If it weren't necessary we woudln't have him in daycare at all. 2 hours two days a week and 1 hour one day isn't too bad. We are required to pay the minimum $15 for 3 hours each day but he won't be staying any longer than he needs too.

If I am not mistaken Kansas has medical and religious exemptions.

Some vaccines shed, others don't.

Every state has exemption forms, as mentioned.

Pressure to vaccinate is one reason we started not going to well visits. It wasn't worth the fight every few months.

What do you mean shed?

Soome vaccines, particularly some of the live virus vaccines may not make the patient sick, but they become a carrier for the dissease, having the potential to pass a weakened strain to others. The ooutbreaks of pertussis are prime example of this.

Check into exemptions. I'm filling out one for my son even though we partially vax. There is a vaccine they don't have record of him having even though I know he got it so I'm filling out the exemption for it so they don't make him get it again.
