Continuing vaxes

My 5 year (dd1) old just came home with a sheet from the school about next year kindergarten and her vaxes. I had fully vaccinated her -before I learned better- and now am doing selective vaccinations with DD2 and DD3. Here in MN we do have a choice not to vaccinate, but I am stuck on the fence about just not doing them or doing the blood tests?

BTW, this is what the school is saying she needs by the fall;
1 shot DTaP
1 varicella
1 Hib
1 Oral Polio

Any input? Since we already started with full vaxes, I don't know where to go from here.

Oral polio? Is that not the one that has the live virus?
Here where we are, they only do the injected polio if you choose to have it.
When my ds1 started school, dd as well for that matter, we had to get them up to date. The only way they allow no vax for school is to have a dr's note telling them why..??
since my kids were vaxxed already, I chose to update the ones needed. dd is on a delayed schedule and my ds2 has only had his 2 months vax, i am on the fence with him still getting anymore before 2 years old.

hmm id be asking about the oral polio I "think" that is a live virus and has caused many outbreaks. There is a shot that is suppose to have the nonactive polio.

If you dont want to continue any more vaxs find out what kind of exemptions your state has. Here is texas we have 3 and it was super easy to get them from the health dep.

Re: Continuing vaxes

they don't give oral polio anymore, so i'd definately be asking about that...and you can get an exemption, it's usually pretty easy.
