Do the girl scouts require the girls to be vaxed?

I've never seen that question, either that or I ignored it.

Don't think so... My son is ins boy scouts and they have never asked for immunization records.  Do not see how they could legally do that.

They asked for my oldest daughters but she was vaxed until age 2 so i just turned in her records. My second daughter has had none.

No. Sometimes the registration form will have questions about general health, health conditionds and vaccine status but they are option to even answer. The Girl Scouts don't tell you its optional but it is. Vaccinations are not required though.

How do you get around vaccinations with a foster child? I thought the state made you since they are the ones with legal custody and you just had physical custody. I want to foster one day, and hate the idea they will make me vax the foster kid.

What about if you plan to adopt? Can it be stopped during the adoption process? I would hate something happen to a child in my care doing something I dont agree with.

I'm not sure! We r foster parenting my niece so we not real foster parents just a family placement! I would think u would have to vax up until u adopt since the adoption could always fall through!
