Re: new vax requirements here

If the missing documentation is not presented to the school by the due date, the student will not be allowed back into school until the required records have been provided.


This part can't be true. They need to re-word this document. In Maryland, you can certainly get an exemption. Do you have one already? I would call the school but be verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry polite about it b/c I've learned in general that when you try to go against the grain in school, it can be taken out on your child in various ways. (Long story.)** Anyway...I would call, say "I received this document, blah blah, and I just wanted to make sure that our exemption due to (blah blah reason--medical, religious, etc.) is still valid, because the language on the document doesn't include it."

**ETA: Your school might be cool with non-vax, but you never know, so you probably want to be very polite and patient. Keep in the back of your mind that this might sound weird or "different" to them, and present it in a patient way, and all should be fine. The fact is that legally, your child can attend school anyway. But they don't have to like it. You want to try to help them to like it. It will make it easier on everyone. Don't know why I came out with that one--you seem very polite--it's just something I was thinking of the other day when a bunch of parents at Colin's preschool got way defensive on the subject of vax, and I realized I should not have launched right into it--I should have understood that from their POV, it might sound really different.

Re: new vax requirements here

Oh! I see! I'm sorry, I didn't understand that. Yes, it's worded as if kids will not be allowed into public schools, period, unless they're standard-vaxed.

I hate that too.

Our former pediatrician did that as well. One time Colin was getting three shots in one sitting, and although back then I knew nothing about vax/autism or anything like that, I was a little surprised. I said, "Does he really have to get so many shots all at once?" and she got angry and said, "Do you want your child to get into public school or do you want a hassle?" Now...she didn't *specifically* say, "Your child must vax to get into public school," and she didn't specifically say "This exact vax is required to get into public school," but look at the way she worded that. I was terrified into accepting the shots. All 24 of them in a 24-month period.

Re: new vax requirements here

Wow, 24 in 24 months??? My son has had nine altogether and he's 15 months. We had planned to delay them but after hurricane Katrina they had STONGLY recommended that everyone who came back get up to date on a few certain vax's so we all got them. (He's was only 4 months then.)

Anyway... yeah, that form isn't right. But I guess they are just trying to make sure that as many kids as possible get them. I mean, its one thing to be against vaxing but think of all the people that don't care one way or the other and are just too lazy to go do it. (Or can't afford it.) And if everyone that couldn't afford it didn't get their kids vaxed, a lot of kids would wind up sick but that's just my opinion.

Re: new vax requirements here

Gee...a press release by a school that makes it sound like vaccination is "mandatory".....well, color me SHOCKED.....
Sigh
I was at least somewhat comforted that my stepsons school handbook does at least have a blurb stating our state exemption law.
