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!

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.

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.
