Question for non-vaxers
DD #1 had all her vaccinations already, at her 2 year well baby, they told me some of them were done a few days too early (1 mmr, 1 hep, and 2 other ones i cant remember) and would need to be redone. I refused to let them redo them. They told me that if I didn't get them redone, she wouldn't be able to start school when she was ready. What do you do in that situation? I mean, when school is starting... They said that legally she had to have all her vaccinations up to date or she cannot enter public school.

Totally untrue! All you have to do is get a vax exemption for from the state. At least, that's how it's done in Texas! :banghead:

They're actually quibbling about a few days???? For heaven's sake.

Request that they draw antibody titer levels. I know that if those are high enough that she won't need more shots and that should be enough for her to enter school.

Here's a link about vax exemption in Wisconsin:

Hope that helps!

Re: Question for non-vaxers
you just fill out an exemption when the time comes. It is not a big deal. Here in co it's as easy as flipping over the shot record and signing one of the three exemptions.... medical, religious or philosophical.

our school looks at what is given and does not compare dates to bday.

Exemptions aren't a big VA you pretty much only have the religious exemption option, but noone is legally allowed to ask you what religion you are.

Re: Question for non-vaxers
She CAN go to school. I can't believe they're telling you she has to have them re-done because they were a few days early?? Talk about WAY too much! And then they'd want her to have her boosters on top of that in a couple of years? Umm, no. I don't think it's necessary.

My DD just started K and we did have her vax'd on schedule because I didn't know any better, but we DID NOT have her boosters done and won't. I typed up a religious exemption form, but when I took it in to school, all I had to do was sign the back of her vax card that the school keeps on file and that was it. No questions asked, no crazy looks. Nada.

Re: Question for non-vaxers
sounds like a bucket of you know what to me too. my question is why did they give them to her early? wonder who's fault that is... :headscratch:

Re: Question for non-vaxers
It was her old ped's fault and it ticks me off so bad! I will NOT have them redone over a few days! Thanks for the advice ladies, I'm making sure the same thing doesnt happen w/dd#2...she's actually 2 months late for her vaxes lol.
