Autumn...I think this is in defense of the women who said not to ask you, in the other post. Of course you're biased. It's not a bad thing, don't take it that way. Just as the over-anxious one will have 35 vax's. And they shouldn't take it bad. Everyone has their own lifestyle choices. We can all sit and say, all day, that mine is better than yours.

In order to send your child to a public school don't you HAVE to be current on vaccinations?

Quoting nettesmomma:

No.. every state has an exemption form.

You do NOT have to be vaccinated to attend public school.

You're wrong, hun.

NJ has both medical and religious exemptions.

2. Are vaccines required for children to attend school and daycare in New Jersey?
New Jersey has mandatory vaccination regulations, however, a child can attend public or most private schools with select or no vaccines if the parent/guardian provides a valid medical or religious exemption letter to the school administrator. Private and religiously affiliated schools may or may not accept religious vaccine exemptions, however. NJ does not currently allow parents to use a conscientious/philosophical vaccine exemption, which would change ifbill A260/S1071passes into law.
 
In most states, a parent must bring written proof of a child's immunizations from the health provider or clinic at the time of school registration. If a required vaccination has not been obtained, and there is no health condition or religious objection preventing immunization, the child must receive the vaccinations before school entry. You can find out what the requirements are in your state through a link provided at the end of this section.
 
 
 
So everyone that does not vaccinate falls under the health condition or religious objection????
I also want to add that I have done preschool and kindergarten round up in our school and have for the last 7 years and never ONCE did I encounter a health or medical waiver for immunizations.

 I didn't know that you could opt out.  What if it's not a religious or a medical reason that you didn't get the vax?  You simply just choose not to because you didn't want to?  That doesn't fall under those 'rules'.  I just hope that those that choose not to vax know when to keep their kids home from school so the other kids whose parents choose not to vax don't pass some crazy illness around the school. My child is current on her vax and I can't begin to count the number of times I've had to keep her home because she's been sick already.  Oddly enough she was a pretty healthy kid up until she went to school.

Please note I'm not saying that vax is right or wrong, but if you choose not to, just make sure that you are protecting other peoples children from contagious illness that could of been prevented via a vax.  That's just my opinion tho.
