Re: WIC and vaxing??

When they asked me for ours, I just told them I could get a copy but it would be blank. lol. (Well, he did have his 2m shots, but then we stopped) They asked why and I told them we didn't vaccinate and they said that was fine.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.

The WIC here asks if they are up to date but they don't request to see them.

Re: WIC and vaxing??

Well the first time it was written on CJs well baby paper from the dr that we refused vax but the lady didn't notice it or either just didn't say anything.
Oct we go back again and I'll have my reg lady back and I know she'll look and ask for his shot record. I'm going to ask our Ped what to do. My mom always forgot my brothers shot record (when he was being vaxed, she stopped when he was around 1) and they just said bring it next time.

Re: WIC and vaxing??

I was told it was proof that it was them, like an id card. I'd say just take a birth certificate and tell them you don't have shot records

Re: WIC and vaxing??

i am in CT and there is no vax info required. only the finderstick for iron levels (which i hate just as much). i don't think they can request this. call your state WIC office. you could always say you don't vax on religious reasons and due to freedom of religion they don't really have a right to question that.

They always ask me if my kids are up to date and I say, "Yes, with the vaccines I want them to have." If they ask further I say, "We're delaying/spacing out vaxxes and our ped is more than fine with it." They've never given me a problem.
