the info is out there people........
Every state has exemptions....they do not advertise them, of course....
They will say something like "no shots, no school"
but what they realy mean is "you must have either a vaccination record OR a signed exemption form to get into school"
In Florida, they have medical and religious exemptions. You simply sign a piece of paper saying that vaccines are against your religious beliefs, and that is all. Your religion does not actually have to say it is against vaccines, just your personal beliefs are. it is fairly simple.
It's as easy as flipping your immunization card over and signing it. Not a big deal at all. And surprisingly the percentage of children in school who are not fully vaccinated is rising (yay!) so no you do not have to vaccinate in order for your child to attend school.
