Re: s/o:if you do NOT vaxed AND was going out of the country....

I wouldn't plan on going anywhere that I would fear not having my children vaxxed. If it was something we could not avoid, then I would have to do some major research and fiond out what we needed to have done before we went there.

Re: s/o:if you do NOT vaxed AND was going out of the country....

Something that came to mind when I was re-reading this thread...

If you were going to do humantarian work with an agency, don't they require you to be up to date on these kinds of things?

I have always pondered this question, and I never really thought about doing this for my children, as we're lucky to go on vacation an hour down the road at this stage in their lives. However, if they felt led as adults to go overseas somewhere and help out, I would honestly support them in that decisions even if that meant they had to take medical precautions in order to do so.

But I am wondering when it comes to obtaining a passport, what limitations are placed on US Citizens that aren't vaccinated? Does that depend on the destination or what?? Anyone know?

That's the only reason we vax. We're military so heading out of the country is a reality for us. Even going to Europe or Japan I would rather have vaxes just in case. Plus I didn't go to Africa last summer because I was pg and couldn't get the vaxes, so I definitely wouldn't let DD go out of the country without hte vaxes she needs.

I know when my dd went to Japan they asked for her Vaccinations but we just gave the records of the ones she had which is no where near what is required to goto school and nobody ever questioned me.
