Selective/Delayed vax and religious exemption

I am revisiting the issue of vaccines. My DD (first child) was basically fully vaxed, until our second child, DS was 6 months old and we decided no more until further notice. So DD would have been about 3 when we made the decision for our family. DS has had the 2mos, 4mos, and 6 mos vax. 

We homeschool, so it's not often (so far) that we need the exemption. Just in case we do, my plan has always been to use the religious exemption. 

Lately I've been thinking about doing more of a delayed/selective vax'ing, as opposed to NO vax. Can I still do the religious exemption, while doing some vaccines? 


Thanks!

Yeah, just file the exemption as if they don't have any vaccines and don't turn in vax records.

Quoting SabrinaMBowen:

 Yeah, this is the only way. But it can get tricky. Esp. if there is an 'outbreak' at school, they usually send the unvaxxed kids home until it's over, and if your child is on file as not vaxxed but is, they'd be missing school for no reason, etc.

Thanks. :)

 

We're homeschooling so far, so the school outbreak issue isnt a problem for us.
