Re: Can I fight this?

Say that it is due to religous reasons- that can't really go against that.

Yeah, same question here. Do you NEED to have this family support person in your life? Seems she's more against you than in support of you.

Re: Can I fight this?

In Canada NO vaccine is required. In Ontario there are some that you will need to get an exemption for to go into school. You do not legally need the exemption until the child is school age.

What this person told you is a threat that she cannot follow through on. The public officials often say it in order to get you to vax.

It goes against our Civil Rights to force vaccination on a child.

Re: Can I fight this?

well I would look up your state, or country's exemptions. Most cities or states have a medical exemption.

Call CPS yourself and ask them. Do not give them info on who you are if that freaks you out. But tell them exactly what your situation is.

Is there any way that you can stop utilizing the family support worker?

I was using a public health nurse for a while and when I shared with her my decision to delay or possibly not vax at all she was mortified until I told her that the ped agreed with me. But low and behold within 2 days of our well baby check with the ped and there were no shots my county (who the public health nurse works for) mailed me a reminder that he was due for his vaxes. I called our dr just torked that my county was made aware of this and she said that no one would have informed...so the public health worker was just sending me these notifications knowing my decision and was trying to bully me. So I just cut ties and told her I no longer needed her services. I have not recieved another notification since.

Re: Can I fight this?

Unfortunately, if you ARE involved with FCS, they do have a say in what you do. Even though WE don't vax, I still have to get the foster kiddos done, kwim? Because for them, it's a liability issue. They don't have an issue with MY kids not being vax'd but the kids in THEIR care have to be.

I'm assuming there's an open file now, otherwise they wouldn't be involved, even IN the home. If you can get a letter from your doctor stating that she reacted to the 4 month DPTPHiB, and that it's recommended to delay until 1 or 2 (whatever they recom.), the FSW can't do anything about that.

If you want to know anything else, LMK. Our resource worker (the "FSW" so to speak, for the foster parents) is a WEALTH of information, and he's friends with dh to boot, so I get a lot of "off the record" answers from him. I can call him in the morning and ask if it's allowed. PM me if you need anything!!

If you have a good relationship with your doctor I would call him and have him write you a note. The government will stand behind what your doctor says even if they wont stand behind what you want.

I don't have any good advice unfortunately. I just wanted to lend some support b/c I would be a wreck if I were in your shoes.

Good luck to you!
