Mother's Day out and delayed vax ??
 
Do you mama's that delay of just don't vaccinate not take your kids to places like this?
Riley needs some socialization and we were thinking of putting him in a 1 day a week mother's day out program. They say that a current yearly immunization record and a statement of good health are required for children to participate in the program.
So far on Riley, we've delayed his MMR, varicella, and Hep A. What to do? TIA!

We do not vaccinate and we go EVERYwhere! Jack goes to our church's MDO one day a week, we go to the park, we go to playgrounds, we go everywhere. Not vaccinating is no reason to keep your child shut up inside. I would take my child out the same vaxed or not. Everything he comes across will build his immune system.

If he was sick, or if I knew someone else was sick, then yeah, we'd space ourselves a bit. I wouldn't want to give anyone else Jackson's cold, and I wouldn't want him playing with a kid that had snot pouring out their nose, kwim? Less for the germ factor than the just plain yuck factor. :laugh:

ETA: Our doesn't ask for a shot record, but it's a small church. *shrug* They can deny Riley access if he's not fully vaxed, since they aren't government funded. But they are able to accept exemptions if they want. So just talk to them and then go from there.

Yeah, I certainly don't keep him away from places, but what do you do when places have a vaccination requirement?

Our MDO/preschool needs the shot records as they are state licensed. Its the law here even though they arent a public school. Some MDO's were very strict and wouldnt accept a waiver, ours was ok once I explained I was vaxing- just delaying some things because of a reaction in the family. I wrote a note and attatched it to her shot records and they were satisfied. They just need something for if/when they get inspected by the state. So you should ask.
