So.... now I am nervous because I've never had to do an exemption yet.  Are they going to question me because she's had vaccines before?  Also, I did go to vaccine exemption sites, but what is the best one?  I live in AZ, btw.  Gosh, I don't know why I am so nervous...... also, it's the dtap and the menactra vaccines... isn't the menactra a new one, and caused complications?  I remember the docs at my son's clinic wouldn't even administer it to him when he was a newborn, because it was too new at the time.   My daughter is in 6th grade too, if that matters..... thanks!! :))

Your "religious" views can change. I am not sure what exemptions they allow in AZ. If it is a public school there is not much they can do. Just send your exemption in.

Won't be an issue at all.  My 5 year old had her vaxes until 2.  I looked up your exemptions.  You have all three.  You'll be using philosophical.

I got 2 of them for my 7th grader.  I just threw them away because they didn't offer exemption as an option.  I have to actually go into the school to do that and I haven't had a chance.  Guess what?  She's still going to school.  I don't recommend this route, just go into the school and talk to them.

None of my kids have exemptions on file.  Only one is actually up to date on his shots.  None have been kicked out of school for it.  I'm still waiting to see how long it takes them to notice.  I know it sounds irresponsible, but I try to do as little paperwork as possible.
