Just say no. They can't make you. Surgery is sterile environment. There's no risk.

My ds (22 months) had surgery in April, there was no mention of a tetanus shot. I think before we checked out they asked about vaccines and I just said we delay. I've learned if I say that I don't get questioned on it. Lol
