kindergarten shots question

Posted by   + Show Post

dd is 4 be 5 in nov she goes to a private preschool she started in aug today i go pick the kids up and there a note in the parent box saying she has to have the kindergarten shots by friday the 12th theres no way i can do that her dr doesnt give kids shots at all and i have to work every week day untill the 25th can they really require me to get her the kindergarten shot already and in such a short notice? her dr from before we moved said she doesnt have to get them untill shes 5 or right before she starts kindergarten it would be my choice when she gets them. she also always runs a low grade fever when she gets shots and she cant be at preschool with any kind of fever

Call the school and ask them and tell them your dr says he can not. It will be fine.

My boys started K in MD and we signed a waiver for their shots. We then got a medical waiver for my kids so now they are exempt.

Quoting mommaslilmen:

I wanted to skip the chicken pox shot :( wasn't able to.



I'm in southern md




Quoting diaperstodating:

I am in Maryland to.



Quoting mommaslilmen:

I don't know about private school, but public school my kids couldn't start until they had the basic shots (Md only lets medical and religious exemptions)

I don't understand why they are asking for shots that she needs for next school year. I think because of her birthday you might run into this every year. We have 1 month after the birthday to get shots. As long as she is up to date they can not say she can't attend. But that's for public school, private school can do what they want.
